Update issues again… temperature and humidity measurement seems to stuck from time to time. The reason is Home Assistant that should update these. Station Master switched these to be taken from WeatherFlow Tempest, but there is the risk that it will go offline due to power failure–there has not been much sunlight lately available.

Tempest Woke Up!
Today, WeatherFlow Tempest got enough solar radiation and it woke up! Battery voltage has so far increased from 2.33 V to 2.37 V. This means we are getting Wind, Solar Radiation and UV Index. Having Wind value, Feels Like can be calculated, too. Measuring Gusts would require even better battery status–with this status Wind is...

Station Setup and Data Flow
Station Master created an image clarifying the current Weather Station Nagu hardware and software setup. WeatherFlow Tempest should provide all weather data, but since it went offline due to lack of solar power, some data is collected using RuuviTag (temperature, relative humidity pressure) and old Davis equipment (rain). Home Assistant reading RuuviTag originally served our...
Rain Gauge Back Online
Rain measurement uses old Davis rain gauge, so it was possible to publish online, too. Wind, Solar Radiation, UV and Feels Like (dependent on wind measurement) will not be available until Tempest is back online.
Temp, Humidity and Barometer Back Online
Station Master was able to restore Temperature, Humidity and Barometer updates. These measurements are based on Ruuvi beacon.
Weather Station Offline
Due to low power status of WeatherFlow Tempest, WS Nagu is currently offline. Station Master is trying to figure out how to obtain at least some of the measurements, but this may take some time.
