The Virtual Weather Station is a weather station that is created based on the geographic location of the controller. The station is not real, but uses complex algorithms, satellite data, real weather stations, atmospheric data from airplanes, and pressure readings from mobile phones to calculate a comprehensive, highly accurate history for the selected location. The Virtual Weather Station can now be selected as a weather station and is free to use.
Please view the steps and screenshots to access this feature:
- Click on the settings icon on the upper right, then select "Weather stations."
- Your free "virtual weather station" should already be shown at your address.
- Click on the purple icon for your virtual weather station and click "select."
NOTE: The virtual weather station will appear more visible on the map if the boxes in STEP-2 are unchecked for the personal and airport weather stations.
