I created a plugin to pull down data from my home weather station and display it in a custom block. The data updates every 10 minutes. I’m also gathering daily summaries behind the scenes for future blocks to come.

Here is the block in action. It is currently “no frills” and needs some styling and a round of code clean up, but I’m happy with the first working version.
