Minor Spring Update

Today, we’re happy to announce the release of Weathercloud 10.1, a minor update that brings some more improvements for all users of the platform.

Let’s see what’s new in this version:

Enhanced Automatic Tweets

We’ve added a couple new features to make both the hourly and the new instant tweets even better:

Present weather

Hourly and instant tweets now also include the present weather along with the current data. All devices reporting temperature, dew point, rain rate and atmospheric pressure will display the present weather both on Weathercloud and in the automatic tweets.

Webcams

In addition to the present weather, hourly and instant tweets now also support webcams. If you have added one or more webcams to your device on Weathercloud, you will be able to select which of them you want to be displayed on your tweets. To do so, you need to go to the Devices page and click on Connect to Twitter in the Settings drop-down menu (the cog icon). Once there, choose a webcam by clicking on its thumbnail. Keep in mind that most web browsers no longer support webcams without secure HTTPS, so please make sure your webcam uses this protocol so that we can show it Weathercloud.

See below an example of a tweet displaying both the present weather and a webcam:


Enhanced Followers List

The followers list lets you know at a glance who added your device to their favorites. In this version we’ve improved the list by making the profile pictures slightly bigger and including the bio and category of each follower. If you haven’t added your category and bio yet, we encourage you to do so from the Profile page.


Minor Bug Fixes and Enhancements

  • Fixed the X-axis in the custom and evolution plots for proper display on mobile devices.
  • Added compatibility with GARNI 1025 Arcus, LOGIA LOWSC710SWB and UTECH FT Series and WS Series.
  • Updated the Compatible devices page to include the new supported models.

We hope you enjoy these new enhancements and look forward to hearing your feedback.

Thanks for your support and stay tuned for more to come!

  1. For me, webcam image is not been displayed. I selected the thumbnail, address is https, but it’s only the regular hourly tweet appear, no webcam image.

    I have more than 1 device, how do I link them or log in ? I.e phone, iPad and a PC. It keeps on asking me to go premium on each separate one

    When I connect to upload it does not upload then crashes after a few minutes, no data will go through ?

  5. This comment is about Weathercloud in general. I am disappointed in that I expected to be able to reliably see weather data remotely. I have been through setup numerous times and after a few reports the system goes offline, and will only be available again when I go back to the station site many miles away and reset (which is difficult) and get it back online.

    • Weathercloud says:

      Hi Robert, from your description of the issue believe that it may be related to your station since you need to reset the unit each time in order to get it back online. If the problem was on our side, once solved your station would resume sending data automatically without any action on your part.

    10.1 upgrade is much appreciated especially the improvements to the Evolution charts, I use these all the time on a smartphone and really give WeatherCloud an advantage over other weather websites/apps.
    However I find the rain chart misleading. Rainfall levels are broken down into 6 hour periods when looking at the weekly view, so 4 totals per day and when looking at the monthly view the totals are per day. This leads to the strange situation today for example, of showing the maximum rainfall for the last month being 23mm but the max for the last week being 12mm! The reason being the 12mm was only for a 6 hour period. Would be nice to see a way of comparing data between the charts, maybe by adjusting to give an indicative day, so the 12mm would be equivalent to 48mm/day. Or maybe the maximum displayed should always use the same unit, e.g. mm/hour, so the max figure in all 3 views is comparable.

      Hi John, thank very much you for your feedback. You need to switch to the Month view to check the rainfall daily totals. Anyway, we have noted your suggestion and will give it due consideration.
