A Home device to just pass data for announcements?

Looking to integrate data from Davis weather station. Want to pass the reported weather station data in response to Siri request like "What is the wind speed?" or "Current UV index?"
I'm using the Weather Link Live plugin and it is getting the data into Indigo. Problem Is to map them to the Home app as their doesn't seem to be a "device" that just accepts data. As a temp work around a couple existing types like temperature and humidity sensor are available. If I map the temp data to Home Temperature Sensor I get the data from the weather station but Siri announces it as the internal temp for the house. The humidity sensor doesn't report any values for some reason. Tested using Masquerade but ran into the same issue with no device to map to just accept the passed weather station values. Any ideas or suggestions on how to work around the issue?

Running OS X 10.15.3 on 2018 Mac Mini, Indigo 7.4.1

If I understand the issue, you may want to take a look at the Masquerade Plugin.

TL;DR?
