    I'm waiting to get my hands on one of those stations too so I can check the WeatherFlow parser.

    I just checked this morning, and WeatherFlow is getting the last few hundred of their pre-orders out to Europe, so I'd imagine that production for retail sales should begin soon.  I've got a WeatherFlow and I'm running the WeatherFlow parser (currently, just NOAA and WeatherFlow enabled in the Weather Systems tab), and I'd be happy to provide data to Rainmachine folks (logs, remote connection, whatever) if it would be useful in the interim.

    Weatherflow have announced a new version that will ship to select countries from Q1 2020 called Tempest. This will include forecast data.

    This is currently in the funding stage on KickStarter and is already fully funded.

    It looks to amalgamate the technology in their Air and Sky systems in to one package with solar charging.

    I have funded this on kickstarter and when I receive my unit next year, I will integrate it with RainMachine (although it will use the currently published API).

    It looks pretty good, but I wonder how good it will measure rain with the haptic sensor.  I personally would love a weather station with this features but without another indoor unit.

    Good point. Their current haptic sensor is quoted as +/- 20%.

    But as we are 37 kms away from the nearest station, this would be good enough.

    Also, I believe they are updating their hardware in the new version as expected and improving these figures.
