Unfortunately they are the conditions for the day. Mine currently says “conditions”: “Rain Possible”, but currently it’s partly cloudy here with no rain so far.
but combined with my previous answer that is the best you can get from weatherflow directly at the moment.
Thanks everyone, it’s a great product and love the API, keep up the great work!
If you run Weather Flow-through Weather Display then you get current conditions - so cloudy, raining, stopped raining etc
Hope that helps
Not really, I am trying to get Current Conditions locally.
My current issue is fog and cloud calculations. I have noticed on cloudy days UV may actually go up (which is actually possible) so I need to look at the curve and/or compare to light levels or UV rad.
on partly cloudy days UV might go up when compared to a clear blue sky by as much as 25%.
If you really want to know the cloud coverage, you might consider buying a cheap camera with a 180 degree fish-eye lens and do some analysis on the image that. I got me one from china which even sees the clouds at night (nightsky2 - YouTube), but I still didn’t write software for calculating the cloud coverage.
Wd does give you local conditions though - as its directly from your local data. It also has fog and cloud calculations, based on solar percentages, also cloud height etc…
Still think its worth a look as its the only software i have found that outputs conditions as a text string - ie Partly Cloudy/Stopped Raining, Foggy etc
I’ll look again, but seeing the radar image made me think it was not all local.
