What weather station seems to be best?

    I have an Ambient Weather WS-2000 and it works with my Mini-8 both from IFTTT and through WeeWX.

    IFTTT pauses the Mini-8 if it rains more than 0.05 inches and WeeWX pushes the weather station data directly to the Mini-8.

    Been working very nicely for me.

    WeeWX does require at least a Raspberry Pi, but if you have any Linux machine around it will work. I have mine installed on a machine I use for Plex.

    The WS-2902A is the same outdoor sensor package with a different indoor console and works the same way for the Mini-8 interface.

    Thanks.  I'm not planning on using a Pi or Linux.  I just want something that will work with WU or something along those lines.

    I bought an Ambient WS-2902A and was able to restore Wunderground service. I am using my PWS as the source. However, I am not seeing the recorded precipitation from the PWS showing up in the RainMachine observed logs, and RainMachine started to water this morning after we received 0.75 inches of rain yesterday evening.

    When you say using your PWS, do you mean the WU feed or the push from the weather station using weewx?

    I never had good results with WU data and that is why I changed to the push from weewx.

    I’m trying to use the WU feed. I did get RainMachine to record the 0.75 inches yesterday after I used the web interface to select my PWS. Thanks for the tip about weewx.
