Automated importing of National Weather Service (NWS) data into FarmOS.


The purpose of this project is to allow FarmOS to use data from the National Weather Service to allow it to make better decisions as well as to log data from a trusted weather source.

Using data from the National Weather Service reduces the cost to get a FarmOS installation going as temperature, rain, humidity and other sensors do not have to be purchased. Furthermore, it reduces the maintenance costs by reducing the amount of infrastructure required to maintain the farm or garden.

System Requirements

  • Drupal 7
  • FarmOS
  • Internet connection


Clone the Repository

To get the latest release, clone this repository by running the command below

git clone

Within your Drupal site, enable the FarmOS NWS and FarmOS NWS Feeds Importer modules from the Modules page.

Configure FarmOS NWS

After enabling the modules, go to the FarmOS NWS configuration page (Admin > Configuration > Web Services > FarmOS NWS Settings). Enter the file system location, weather locations that you would like weather imported for, measurement units, and whether you want to keep files after they have been loaded. When done, click Save.

Configure Feed Importer

Within your Drupal site, go to the feed importer page (Structure > Feeds Importers > Log: NWS Observation). In the Fetcher section, set the upload directory to the same directory that you defined in the Configure FarmOS NWS section. When done, click Save.


Within your Drupal site, go to the Modules page and disable FarmOS NWS and FarmOS NWS Importer modules and click Save Configuration. Then go to the Uninstall page (Modules > Uninstall), select each module, and click Uninstall.

If you uninstall the modules, the data that was imported by the modules WILL NOT be removed. If you wish to remove the data that was imported, you will have to manually remove each entry.
