Hello @anne ,
so first I was trying to use the 16 day forecast device for tomorrow’s weather and I was going crazy as it didn’t pull any data. Then I found out that the starting 16 day API subscription costs $40 per month, which is a bit expensive only to get tomorrow’s forecast.
Does anyone even use the 16 days device?
Then I figured out that the 5 day forecast is free, and I can use 8 x 3-hour intervals to get to tomorrow. But, the question is: will this pull new data depending on current time? i.e. in the morning, the data is shown for tomorrow morning and in the evening for tomorrow evening (so 8x3= 24h ahead)?
The thing is, I’d like to get data for a fixed time point in a day (let’s say 12:00), not a rolling forecast changing every three hours.
Maybe the app behaviour / API response is already set in such a way. If not, it would be a nice feature to have! Don’t get me wrong, both the rolling and fixed time stamps would be very useful, I’m just not sure which one is being used / is possible.
Thanks in advance!
edit: I found in the available flow tags that the date and time setting is rolling ahead every three hours, so a fixed time request is not possible without several additional flows (one for every three hours if you want to stay precise) and one separate device for each flow which would then update custom variables in predefined times during the day. Therefore, a suggestion for the next update if possible: it would be great to enable the call for a fixed time in a day.
If anyone has achieved this without additional flows, devices and variables (and $40 monthly ), I would appreciate the feedback. Thanks!
