Fantastic weather station
This is a fantastic weather station. The best one I’ve own! I would have given it a five star rating if it had one additional feature. More on that later. The unit was extremely simple to setup. It started sending data to the app as soon as the setup was complete. I had a thunderstorm the evening I received the unit. Lightning detection was accurate and timely. Rain onset, rate, and amount was accurate and notification was right on time. Highly recommend.
Now what would it take for that 5th star? An Apple Watch app and complications. I rely on weather data on my Apple Watch more than my phone. I currently have complications from Carrot Weather on my watch but would love to have the data from the Tempest displayed. Any plans on creating an Apple Watch app? That would complete the system.
Weather Done Smartly
As a retired old weather forecaster I am blown away by my new Weather Flow instrument and their supporting apps. Accurate, dependable, historical, and brilliantly designed. It measures wind, rainfall, and solar from the top of my roof, and temp, humidity, pressure, and lightning strikes from a separate unit under a north-facing eave. It is all networked with a wireless router device in my office. The unit on the roof is solar powered and the whole system has no moving parts! Support is timely and helpful. A couple of weeks ago our local internet provider went down for a few hours. I received email notification from Weather Flow asking if they could help because data had stopped flowing. I waited a number of years for a home weather station. I'm absolutely delighted with the Weather Flow!

Thanks for this fantastic review! We appreciate your support and enthusiasm.
Tempest Needs APRS Support DESPERATELY!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE your product! As a licensed amateur radio operator, I am interested in being able to send WX updates via APRS (ideally via RF through the TNC in my TM-D710G but I wouldn’t be opposed to IP-based APRS updates either). If Tempest has some form of serial interface (Bluetooth maybe?) it would be a fairly trivial effort to incorporate what needs to be transmitted to the TNC. One of your biggest competitors (Davis Instruments) incorporated APRS in their WeatherLink for APRS. I’d be willing to bet you’d get a pretty hardcore group of ham radio followers that would jump on the Tempest bandwagon if you added APRS functionality to Tempest! Supposedly there’s a third party piece of software called Weather Display that people are using to make this happen with Tempest today but I’m still trying to track it down.

Hi! While there is no direct integration for APRS or CWOP, you can use a third party app to share your data elsewhere. Check out the community forum for more info: https://community.weatherflow.com/t/smart-weather-station-third-party-applications/873
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
