Re: Fantastic Weather Plugin Updates

Fantastic Weather Beta 7 has been released.

  • Adds forecast total precipitation state to daily weather devices.
  • Adds timezone setting to astronomy, daily, hourly and weather forecast devices.
  • Adds 'WindString' state to Weather devices -- i.e., 'East at 4.0 mph'.
  • Adds temperatures to Indigo device state list for Daily and Hourly Weather devices (modified by temperature display units).
    • Daily reports daily High/Low (i.e., 72°/32°)
    • Hourly reports hourly High (i.e., 72°)
You can download the latest release here.
You can view the plugin documentation here.

Explanations:
A few of these new features bear some explanation.

Forecast Total Precipitation State:
A new state added to daily weather devices. It is a derived value from taking the average hourly precipitation intensity and multiplying it by 24 hours. This is the total predicted precipitation for the day.

Timezone Setting:
Perhaps not the most appropriately named device setting to display times in either local timezone (the Indigo server timezone) or the location timezone (the geographic timezone of the location being monitored). This setting does not affect certain values--for example, if a weather alert text value says that a warning expires at 10 AM, that's 10 AM *in that location* and will not be modified by the plugin. This setting defaults to the Indigo server timezone and it *should* account for time weirdness (like daylight savings time). The following device states are always displayed in the Indigo Server timezone:
  • currentObservation
  • currentObservation24hr
  • currentObservationEpoch

A big shout out to forum user Monstergerm for ideas and regression testing support.
