Skill name: mycroft-tempest-weather
As a weather fan I want this Skill to have it announce or say current location (or user specified one) weather and forecast, give weather warnings so that I can plan for the coming day.
APIs utilised by the Skill?
Weatherflow Smart Weather API and other Weatherflow APIs.
Yes, similar skill (mycroft-weather). But only for OpenWeatherMap which utilises weather stations possibly not near user’s device. Also there weather data is only as good as its input and with hyper-local weather, it may not always be accurate. However Weatherflow is hoping to change this and directly accessing it through API would be great.
See https://github.com/MycroftAI/mycroft-skills for a list. If so, how could they be combined?
What will the user Speak to trigger the Skill?
“What’s the weather like (likely now or rest of day)?”
“What’s the weather like for ?”
“What’s the weather like for the coming week or fortnight?”
What phrases will Mycroft Speak?
The weather is cloudy, with high of 15 degrees centigrade and a low of 10 degrees centigrade. Is still with a wind speed of 0 mph.
What Skill Settings will this Skill need to store?
Location and if required any user API keys.
This weather data is driven from both an online service and data garnered from a local user’s physical hardware weather station product. This will be useful for handling hyper-local weather that may not show up in conventional weather forecasts.
It also utilises in the data feeds AI to improve the weather forecasts provided through the app and possibly API. Though the Weatherflow developers of the API are open to questions and/or suggestions for additions.
