Hi Weather Friends

We are a small group of Weather Enthusiasts located in Switzerland.
In the last months we have spent hours to develop two small PHP Scripts to check the weather of our Davis Weather Stations but also any PWS Stations from Wunderground.com.
We want to share our work with other Weather Enthusiasts!

Focus on development:

  • Display Weather Data in Browser (especially on Smartphones or Tablets)
  • Setting alerts and get informed on severe weather conditions via email.

Target group:

  • House owners checks weather for their home and garden (awnings, umbrellas, sprinkler-systems etc.) 
  • Meteorologists & Weather Enthusiasts can use it to get informed about typical or untypical weather conditions
  • Fire Departments may observe an area of interest (precipitation, heat etc)

The result:

  • G-Davis: A small PHP Script for Davis Weather Stations connected to Weatherlink Network
  • G-Wunder: A small PHP Script for Wunderground PWS connected to Wunderground Network

We are looking for Beta-Tester.
You need a Web Sever (Webhoster) runs PHP 5x.
NO DATABASE REQUIRED!
Both apps (Pre-Releases) are free and ready to download from our Website: http://www.gustalert.com

Please read the manuals for further information.

Thank you for your interest!

Best regards

A very nice PHP script! It took a matter of minutes to install and to show data (G-Wunder) 

https://www.warehamwx.co.uk/cumulus/gwunder/index.php

I like the light theme for day, and dark for night too. A couple of  suggestions if I may? At the moment, it shows as 'partly cloudy' but I don't think the the sun/cloud icon with the moon by its side, looks right. It would be better to show the crescent moon peeking out from behind the cloud instead of the sun.

I don't suppose a burger menu could be added  to the top left (like here: http://www.gustalert.com/home.php) so that users could add a link back to their site(s)?

Hi Mapantz

Thank you for installation and for your feedback. At the moment I am away so I reply only with a view words from my iphone. About weather icons: We display the icon from the transmitted (is that english?) conditions of wunderground. For example: If wunderground deliver 'clear' we show a sun symbol undepended of day and night. The displayed moon we took from sunset / sunrise time. We know this is not the best solution but we will come back with a better one. Also thank you for your suggestion of the burger menu. Let us think about it please. 

Anyway - For the moment we hope you find this script useful and thank you very much for your feedback here. 

Sorry for poor english. If you are using google please follow us here too: https://plus.google.com/collection/oVycQE

Best regards

        I’m looking at buy a new weather station, I had a Oregon WMR 100 which was very hit and miss and eventually died but I’m looking for something far more reliable and accurate that I can upload all the data to my Mac or PC . I have been toying with either the Davis Vantage cue or Pro 2 , most posting I read suggest those that bought the Vue wish they had the Pro 2 but both seem very good . Any help or advice that can help with my decision pros or cons

      Hello,
      I've got a maplin weather station. I have had it for about 6-7 years now. Weirdly it hasn't stopped working. It's still going strong but I want something that might provide better data and possibly quick data intervals as well.
      I know about the Davis stations but they are a little out of my price range. Does anything have any suggestions that are good quality but still fit within a budget?

      Greetings fellow weather enthusiasts! My wife & I are assembling the technology for our sustainable solar homestead and one item that we acquired is a working Sharper Image Color Weather Station Viewer MI606. We have an immediate need to buy & deploy one or more wireless remote thermometers that will communicate with the weather station. Since we don't have the user manual, and I can't find anything on the web that isn't at a suspicious website, I don't know what wireless remote thermometers will work with the weather station. If someone in this community knows of this weather station model and can provide any information it would be very helpful to our solar homestead project. Thank you for interest in helping.

      Hello everybody! This is my first post here. I'm developing an open source weather station and already have the first version up and running here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-GPRS-Weather-Station-Part-1/
      I'm also evaluating different bits of kit, including the Vector Instruments W200P wind vane, and showing how to use it with an arduino: http://www.instructables.com/id/Analogue-Wind-Vane-With-Self-Calibration/
      If anybody would like to contribute to the project with positive criticism or practical support, please feel free to get in touch. The project is on going and new PCBs are arriving this week to create version 2.
        Thank you!
