Now the weather station is a weather forecast display.
Knowing the highest temperature I’ve seen today isn’t the best use of the hi temp needle. I was there, I remember how hot it got. It’s more useful to see the forecast high temp.
There’s new firmware here https://github.com/powerfulmojo/WeatherMojo/blob/master/forecastmojo.ino
The old firmware still works the same. The new one:
Displays forecast high temp on the thin hand
Updates forecast high once daily at 4am
Adjusts all hands at once instead of one at a time
Uses http://weatherbit.io/ instead of OpenWeatherMap
Retrieves dew point directly instead of computing it
API keys moved to .gitignored a header file so I’m not uploadin’ ‘em to github
Better Particle.function() calls to control motors
Avoids blocking on long motor moves
It still looks great.
