Raspberry Pi enthusiasts looking for inspiration for a new project to keep them busy this weekend may be interested in a new real-time Raspberry Pi weather station project posted to the Hackster.io website by the Arduino “having11” Guy. Classed as a beginner project, the Raspberry Pi weather station should take roughly 60 minutes to complete and requires a Raspberry Pi 4 model B mini PC.
Whether data is provided by the Openweathermap service providing current weather and forecasts in your area. “Gathering real-time weather data that has a lot of detail for a project can be difficult. Several web APIs exist, but many require payment use, or are complicated to set up. Thankfully, OpenWeatherMap.org has an amazing API for individuals that is both free and simple. Just select a service, generate an API key, and send requests! Then, use that data to create displays, change the state of a machine, or even control other devices.”
For more details on the project and how to set up your very own real-time weather station using the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC jump over to the Hackster.io website via the link below.
