Description

UnderTheWX reads weather data off the popular AcuRite USB Professional Weather Centers and uploads it to Weather Underground, Weathercloud, PWSWeather, WOW and CWOP.

If you do not own an AcuRite station, you can use this App to display the weather from any WUnderground station as long as you are a WUnderground contributor.

The app is a Status Bar Menu which displays Temperature, Humidity, Wind speed and direction, Rainfall and Barometer. UnderTheWX supports the AcuRite 01025, 01036, 02032, 02064 and 06037M USB Personal Weather Stations.

Great

Works great, thank you!! Some suggestions for further features: (1) Ability to control how frequently data are updated through the preferences. (2) Some kind of history/graphing option when one clicks the data on the status bar.

Not what I was expecting ,

Awesome - works with Weather Underground!

I've got Weather Underground on my iPhone & iPad, but was disappointed to not see a corresponding app for Mac OS - until I found this. Basically, this is designed to connect to your own personal weather station, but allows you to log into other WU stations on the network if you know the station name. You just have to set it up in the app preferences. I couldn't get the station search to work via the app, but that was easily fixed by going to the WU website and finding stations around my location. Not all stations will be accessible (likely due to the owner's access preferences) but with a little trial and error i found a few that worked for me. Simply look at the map on the WU website for stations around you and click on one close by. That should bring up a page for that station which has the station ID name listed. Copy / paste the name into the app's Station ID field and click 'test'. If it works, it'll say connected successfully. If not, find another station and try again. Great little weather app - thanks!

Fills an imortant need

After some years of persisting with Acurite’s PC-Connect, first by using a headless PC and then by using the Mac version of it I eventually threw in the towel (when Connect ceased working at all) and loaded UnderTheWX. What a difference! Why did I not do this change long ago? UnderTheWX worked out of the box and minimal preference changes were needed. It found Wunderground with essentially no interaction from me. I will be interested to see how it handles power outages which would always bring the older USB software to its knees.
