Add Capability for Wind Alert

I see Rain Alerts and Lightning Alerts, and I would really like to see Wind Alerts. Wind can be very destructive so knowing the wind is building could be very helpful. For us, it is important that we get our horses into the barn if the wind gets too high, because our property is very treed and falling branches could injure our horses.
What I would like to see is the ability to set a threshold that would activate the alert. My threshold would seldom, if ever, change. However, my threshold would not be the same as what someone else might pick, so the threshold needs to be able to be set by the individual user.
Thanks for your consideration.

How will that work? Rain is either On or Off. Wind is a large variable from 0 to a crap load.

Don’t forget to vote for your own feature request! Just posting is not quite enough… In the meantime, have you checked our the IFTTT integrations you can use with your Tempest? For example: https://ifttt.com/applets/UVcCwzsg

I think he means a certain threshold will activate the alert. Let’s say 40mph May set an alert

Yes. I would like the ability to set a threshold that would activate the alert. My threshold would seldom, if ever, change. However, my threshold would not be the same as what someone else might pick.

You should edit your original post and put the threshold details in the request.

I could also benefit from a wind alert of winds at or above a settable threshold value.
