Hello, I have downloaded the channel and works well.
May I ask for a couple of changes for those of us who work (reluctantly - I come from an older generation) with the metric system. Average wind and wind gust is commonly expressed in kilometers per hour. An option to change wind direction to user’s choice - ie. cardinal.
Many thanks Steve. You’ve done a great job!
Thanks for implementing the changes. Works fine and I have taken down the weather site as we be leaving for our trip across Canada at the end of April. I will let you know when we arrive and have a site set up in Nova Scotia on the East Coast. Cheers…
Hello, I’m now somewhat settled in Welshtown, Nova Scotia, Canada. Waiting for a modular house to be delivered in the fall.
The Weather Data for Roku works fine and if you have time could you please look at the pressure as it doesn’t appear to display correctly.
Lightning in this area would also be a valuable addition.
The WeatherFlow phone app & webpage displays pressure at sea-level
My app is displaying pressure at the station.
Both values are included in the raw data.
After researching I found that sea-level pressure is the standard reporting unit.
I am going to make the change and evaluate adding some lightning data.
As long as you are using v2 the update should happen automatically. This will be my first try at auto-updating the channel, fingers crossed.
There are currently 750 users of the app, ROKU does not indicate where in the world they are.
The current round of updates are complete and published. Your ROKU will eventually apply the update on its own; if you would like to force the update: Arrow over to the the app > Select the * > Check for updates > OK to exit
Changed Barometric Pressure from station location to sea-level
Added Lightning Strike counts for previous 1hr & 3hr
Added “Feels Like” temperature
Point of note, you WILL NOT need to re-enter your station number(s).
I seem to have mastered updating with the proper keys to eliminate that hassle.
Hi Steve, The Canadian version “Feels Like” has been used by Canadian Meteorological people by a calculation of the Humidex and is as follows:
The humidex is similar to the heat index but is widely used in Canada where the heat index is not. It equals H = T + (0.5555 * (e - 10)), where T is the temperature in Celsius and e is the vapor pressure in millibars (mb).Aug 13, 2011
I don’t know if this is used in other countries but for Canada is more relevant.
