"Weather" virtual tile not getting humidity reading?


#1

I’m using the built in virtual weather device for triggering some events in WebCoRE, and would like to drive some off of humidity readings. However, my weather device never changes from -999% humidity:

I suggest temporarily testing with a different Zip Code / City, State.

This specific Weather Underground (I believe that’s the data source?) station may be having a problem.

Wow, that is right! I changed it to the neighboring zip code and it refreshed with an actual value for humidity. Now, how do I tell what station it might be using that’s feeding bad data?

Browse the Weather Underground website for details on each weather station, perhaps?

Aha, during this process I found how to select an individual weather station on WU:

so I set it to the one gold star rated station nearest to me, and it’s pulling back correct (as correct as it can be…) data now!
