Stream weather conditions to the cloud!

Arduino TeamNovember 26th, 2018

Weather reports on the news, your computer, or smartphone are very good—something that people 100 years ago could only dream of—but what if you want to know the exact weather in a fixed location from anywhere in the world? One solution would be Jakub Nagy’s excellent cloud-connected station.

It uses an Arduino Uno to collect data from temperature, humidity, pressure, and UV index sensors, along with a Nano to read a rain gauge. The data, with images from a webcam, are passed along to a service called Weathercloud, where this report out of the Slovak Republic can be viewed remotely. 

If you’d like to assemble a similar device to measure conditions in your area, instructions are available in his write-up, including a parts list that will run around $130.
