@petercw2 According to Aeris this seems to be a known defect with CWOP data.
The station is sending the data as Precip since local midnight. Unfortunately, this is the value that NOAA is not redistributing for “APRSWXNET/CWOP” stations. We have requests in to add this, but as of the end of June, we were told there was no immediate option for them to redistribute these values.
My followup to Aeris was…
If I had the customer sending data to personalweather.com would that be a “workaround”?
Their response was…
Correct, if the person is sending their data to pwsweather.com, which is owned by our company, then we have full access to their data in near real time.
Specifically, the observations from the stations are imported in our Aeris API within seconds of being received at PWSweather.com. Though the observations/summaries are updated approx every 15 minutes with the latest received data.
IMHO possible solutions at this point are:
- Publish data from WU to pwsweather using a solution presented here (WeatherSnoop or https://github.com/johnny2678/wupws)
- Use Meteobridge to publish data to pwsweather.com
- If this is too much work or cost, I’ll buy the controller back if the CWOP claim was misleading. This is the first I have heard of a CWOP limitation due to “NOAA is not redistributing for “APRSWXNET/CWOP” stations”
We do plan on having other weather options for next year (hint, hint) but don’t know if the timing works for you.
