Weather Geek Worthy:
The Tempest device features an all-in-one sensor and long-range wireless connectivity (1000ft), sonic anemometer, and haptic rain sensor, but it is far more than just a cutting-edge piece of hardware.

Love the app to go with my weather station. My complaints are cosmetic. First, the widgets are nice, but the spacing leave much to be desired. It seems the various widgets aren't scaling well when resized, and have far too much border space. Additionally, I am not a fan of the "plum" color. Thats fine for defaults, but give us some options for changing app colors as well as the widget colors and transparency. Thanks!

Hi Robert, great feedback. Thank you! You can try dark mode in the app settings - that color option might be more visually appealing to you.

Had my station for a few days now and I'm pretty happy with it so far. It easily connected to Home Assistant no sweat. I primarily interface with the app via the widgets. The 4x2 with the horizontal hourly forecast widget has the data I'd like but the 4x2 size is a bit too dense to easily find what I want at a glance. My home screen is 5 units wide and I've expanded the widget to be 5 units wide but instead of flowing to fill that space it simply centers itself and remains 4 units wide.

Needs some UI improvements for viewing your weather station. It rained over an inch yesterday and then says it only rained a 1/4 of that. Even though the graph and reality is otherwise. Seems fairly useless overall. Please improve. The weather forecast also keeps saying there's going to be thunderstorms whenever there's rain but never does (no other forecast says that).

Hey Brandon, thanks for the report. For the rain measurements, that sounds like you have Nearcast Rain data enabled. You can disable that optional feature if it isn't valuable to you. Please contact our support team for assistance with your station's forecasts, go to help.tempest.earth and submit a ticket. Thank you!
