Weather data way off



My YR weather data is way off. This is unfortunate as I have some anti-freezing scenes which did not trigger. 


Fibaro Center is displaying data from some other location, most definitely not mine. Weather data has  been close enough to fool me a while but now it is off by 10 degrees. Accessing YR weather data through web has the correct weather information for my city. My exact location has been set for Fibaro correctly and this has been double - and triple checked. It matches in coordinates as well on map. 


Anyone have same kind of problems? What to do??



As a quick fix I would like to change the weather data provider to something else than YR Weather. How to do that? The appropriate menu only has one option; YR weather to choose from.

Hi @nickboy,


I have same problem with YR weather. This problem with weather started with version 4.080 if I remember correctly so I use scene and VD that gets weather status from

and my Netatmo weather station.



If you are on 4.110 then you can go to plugin section and install Yahoo weather plugin and then in Configuration select Yahoo instead of YR weather and see if Yahoo will be more accurate.

Same issue here

It doesn't work for either plugin.

Roughly the same errors for YR and Yahoo weather.


Both YR and Yahoo online sites report correct weather for Kingston, Tasmania


I think Fibaro must be passing across incorrect location data.


at 30/5/17 22:45 AEST (UTC +10):


Current real temp here is 7c

Both websites confirm close to this.


Fibaro reports 26c on YR and 25c on Yahoo for the same location


Interestingly, if I change location to Hobart (10km away) it shows 2c (6c in reality and on the 2 websites)


Something is very broken here.


Fibaro Staff:  Please assist if you are watching this

BTW, I am on 4.130 not 4.120


Cheers all

Use the Weather State v2.0 VD by Sankotronic as he's mentioned above.

I put it on last night and it is very good.

Pulls the weather via openweathermap.org which has the suburb I live in in Adelaide as an available City ID.
