The WeatherFlow stations are very good. We are testing 2 of them with our Baron Institute mesonet project across north Alabama.

Some of our stations:
Green Mtn. WeatherFlow: https://smartweather.weatherflow.com/station/11766/grid
Buck Island (Guntersville) WeatherFlow: https://smartweather.weatherflow.com/station/14766/grid
North Florence Davis: https://www.weatherlink.com/embeddablePage/show/bc3c15b2b145445db3739b3784e58f7a/fullscreen
Tuscumbia Davis: https://www.weatherlink.com/embeddablePage/show/666457d123da4931bea586b7954b1d99/fullscreen
McFarland Park Florence: https://www.weatherlink.com/embeddablePage/show/fa81521a8c704a7ead2e1f0226e4b4c9/fullscreen
Red Bay PD: https://www.weatherlink.com/embeddablePage/show/7500976970884e2884798fa9e2a0c5d8/fullscreen

I will add more links as we bring more locations online.

We have a Davis Vantage Pro at our house, it’s going on 14 years old. In the past month, the rain rates won’t display at times and the temp and dewpoint won’t display at other times. Right now everything is working fine. To be that old and in constant use, it’s been am excellent wx station!!

We would like to collect a list of weather stations. Please provide your station's location. Don't provide the actual location, but a town name or section of a city would be sufficient.

If we receive enough replies we can group them by location and pin the thread for reference.

I don't have one on my own, but I will post the site of the Talkweather station linked at the top of the page. Our weather station is located on the grounds of the Huntsville Botanical Garden in southwest Huntsville. https://perry.talkweather.com/

Ambient 2902A. Southwest corner of the Salt Lake Valley in Utah.

I am trying to decide on a new camera/weather reporting systen. I want wind, rainfall rate, and all. I have considered the bloomsky system since it is wireless with solar panels, any other suggestions?

I just installed a new WS 2000. I really like it so far. It seems to have a much better handle on temperatures than my old station. One problem, it will not connect to my WiFi. I have installed both the Ambient Weather app and Weather Underground to use with the station, but it is useless until I can get the connection. I have called both Ambient and Charter and each says it the others problem. Any ideas?

I just installed a WS 2000 at my house this past weekend, so maybe I can help. Have you gone through the process of connecting the console to WiFi? I assume you have, but it's worth starting there.

Yes It is connected to WiFi but will not pick up my Charter 2G signal/ I have Charter coming out later today to boost the signal to see if that is the issue. The console recognizes another WiFi signal, but I am not sure the source of that one.

There is a Facebook group called “Ambient Weather Network User’s Group” that can likely help you. There is an Ambient rep there that is very responsive to questions.

Hey @Drew Richards - Any updates on your testing with the WeatherFlow stations? Looking to upgrade.

Here’s the link to our new WeatherFlow at the broadcast center in Lawrenceburg, TN. We’re piping the data through WeeWx on a Pi which creates these awesome graphs automatically.

Ben - I've never heard of WeeWx! Thanks for sharing. Going to give this a try with one of the new systems we've got coming in. Any issues with the WeatherFlow systems?

You're talking to the biggest fan of WeatherFlow... eclipsed only by @Drew Richards... WeeWx was interesting to set up; I watched Drew do it on my Pi, but since we got it "flowin'" it's been great. Physically, the hardware seems very solid. No issues since we deployed it a few months ago.

Fantastic! Have you used any of the lightning detection features?

We are replacing our memorial weather station at Huntsville Botanical Garden with a WeatherFlow device. One of the biggest issues we had there was birds leaving seeds in the rain collection bucket. Hoping to solve that problem.

We will also be announcing another memorial station later this month.

Also Welcome to TalkWeather @bdluna! Thank you for becoming a sustaining member as well.
