[SOLVED] Openweathermap: forecastDays is to 5 but value in Things is 0

It works, except:

**Local Weather Station**

localStationId

localStationName

localStationLocation

and some other values that look like undefined in basicui/app

I just removed that part as I really didn’t want or need the info.

OK,
localDailyForecastTodayMinApprentTemperature
and
localDailyForecastTodayMaxApprentTemperature

look also undefined, should I remove them too?

Those are undefined for me as well but I haven’t removed them yet. Was waiting to see if anything would change but looks like I may go ahead and delete them.

OK, at least I did not mess things up if you have this too!
Thank you!

This line

Number localCurrentUVIndex "Current precipitation probability [%d]" <none> { channel="darksky:weather-and-forecast:api:local:current#uvindex" }

has to be changed to

Number localCurrentUVIndex "Current UV index [%d]" <none> { channel="darksky:weather-and-forecast:api:local:current#uvindex" }

and in sitemap:

        Text item=localDailyForecastTodayMinApprentTemperature
        Text item=localDailyForecastTodayMaxApprentTemperature

to

        Text item=localDailyForecastTodayMinApparentTemperature
        Text item=localDailyForecastTodayMaxApparentTemperature

Should I edit the page https://www.openhab.org/addons/bindings/darksky/ to correct these?

So only

        Text item=localStationId
        Text item=localStationName
        Mapview item=localStationLocation

are undefined. Any idea how we could fix that?

Nice catch on the spelling. :+1:

Yes, it’s allway’s good to have the correct info in docs. :wink:

@hariskar: Here’s a link you may like if you want to customize your sitemap. https://darksky.net/widgets

Haven’t tried it yet but looks nice.

I can’t edit the page, github gives 404 error for that page.

Gotta go here and submit the change:

Also, see this tutorial:

I did that: https://github.com/openhab/openhab-docs/issues/1136

Hi,
I think the original problem from @hariskar is not solved in openwethermap. I run OWM for 1,5 year without problem and used habpanel widget to show the data.

Now I started with OH3 from scratch and have this problem: I changed the config of OWM to
forecastDays = 5

After change the thing chance to status “unknown”. After restarting the my RPI or only the thing, in the config it is changed to default
forecastDays = 0
again. And then only the hourly data is requested, but not the daily forecast.

Any Idea?

From the OWM binding docs -

Attention : The daily forecast is only available for paid accounts (opens new window). The binding tries to request daily forecast data from the OpenWeatherMap API. If the request fails, all daily forecast channel groups will be removed from the thing and further request will be omitted.

Yes, I Read this. But on OH 2.5 same Account was working and here (Pricing - OpenWeatherMap) is written, that 7 days is for free.

May we see your OH2.5 Thing settings? (weather, not account)
May we see your OH3 Thing settings?

OK, now I’m suprised, because in oh2.5 config “number of days” is 0, too, but I receive the data for condition0 - condition3 and it is show in habpanel widget.

In OH3 today I receive condition3 too, but it is not shown in habpanel:

I find it very confusing too. In OH2 with free account, you could get several days worth of hourly reports, but no daily reports.
OWM may well have changed the rules, but I think some limits are hardcoded into the binding.

Now. all that is using OWMs original “Current and forecast weather data” API. You choose the API the binding willuse when you select the Thing type.

If you are setting up a new OH3 install, you might prefer to use the newer “One Call” API by OWM, which offers a different combination of stuff.

Don’t know what those are linked to.

OK, but the HabPanel Widget is not working with the “One Call” API. I think I will test DarkSky
