wow that looks awful on a 1080p desktop monitor. Hard to optimize for phone to big desktop screens.

There are a few ways you can do it. One is you could connect your Tempest to Weather Underground. But that service is, in my opinion, not long for this world. Another way would be to use a 3rd party platform. I use HomeSeer for my home automation and this program has a WeatherFlow plug-in and a touch screen module that lets you create your own displays. Here is an example of mine:

Note that the extended forecast on this screen is provided by DarkSkys as there is currently not a way to pass WeatherFlow’s forecasting through the plug-in.

The radar image is provided by: Windy.com

My focus is info at a glance so I don’t have any access to charting on these screens.

This screen is sized to fit in the middle of my primary windows 10 screen. So the whole desktop looks like this:

If I touch the little house (bottom right side of the extended forecast) I can then get to my home controls.
This screen has a weather summary as it is actually the primary screen. I get to the detailed weather by clicking on the box that shows the current temps.

My Fitbit died so that is why there is no data there. Nothing gets you motivated to walk more than self shame :wink:

There are other 3rd party applications that connect to Tempest, if you search the forum you will find them.

It should work fine in 64bit Windows10 PCs and Tablets. If you need a 32bit version, let me know.
