Weather and Forecast using REST API for Home Assistant

About 2 years ago I created the first version of a Custom Integration for Home Assistant that combined real-time weather readings from a WeatherFlow station and Forecast data from DarkSky. In the last few month, this has been totally rewritten and DarkSky support has been removed and replaced with forecast data that is now delivered also by WeatherFlow using the new API. The Integration uses the public REST API to pull data.

So in short: You get a full Weather Data experience, with realtime data from your personal weather station and forecast data, that also uses the data you are sending, to build the forecast.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

  • Weather
  • Sensor
  • Binary Sensor

Forecast data can be delivered as hourly or daily data
