    Hmm... I wonder if it's still updating the device string on the polling updates. I'll look into that during the upcoming updates.
    Thanks

    Another Feature I have been looking to replace that I had with the Weather Underground was pulling the Record Low and High Temperature for the date. Would that be something you could add to your plugin?

      Unfortunately no. Ambient Weather is all about your PWS data and is not providing the "Record Low/High" temps through their API. There may be a possibility of using another weather service with the PWS. I'll look into this as things are shifting a lot with the WU changes actually now hitting and settling.

        I tried going here https://w2.weather.gov/climate/index.php and I can use the webpage and get the data but I could not find an api to pull back the data automatically.

          Actually you could probably use jon00 webscraper script for that....

            I would like to see a value for the high and low temperature of the day.
            Maybe the option to select WHICH values you would like to display a high/low of (eg, wind, humidity, indoor or outdoor temperature...)

              This would be a nice feature to have but I'm developed a workaround using events to do this same functionality. I created some Virtual devices for High and Low temperature and compare the current measured value to see if I need to update the daily High or Low value. Then at one minute after midnight I set both Daily High and Low value to current value.

                Once I come up for air, I will look at adding that. Shouldn't be too hard The thing is the "low" may change during the day until it starts going up. We may have to all talk about the best way to handle it
                Thanks,

                  I do something like that using the API from my WeatherFlow station. I have virtual devices for today, yesterday and year to date extremes for temperature and wind gusts. Interesting to look at occasionally. I also incorporate it into a a daily text sent to family members along with current conditions, short and long term forecast, nearest storm location, etc.
