Template Weather Provider

The template integrations creates weather provider that combines integrations and an existing weather provider into a fused weather provider.

There are several powerful ways to use this integration, including localizing your weather provider information with local information from temperature, humidity, pressure sensors that you own.

Another use case could be using temperature and humidity from one weather platform, with forecasts from a different one.

Output will be converted according to the user’s unit system or entity override, see documentation.


To enable a Template Weather provider in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

(Note, be sure to update my_region in the condition and forecast templates to an appropriate value for your setup).

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: template
    name: "My Weather Station"
    condition_template: "{{ states('weather.my_region') }}"
    temperature_template: "{{ states('sensor.temperature') | float }}"
    temperature_unit: "°C"
    humidity_template: "{{ states('sensor.humidity') | float }}"
    forecast_template: "{{ state_attr('weather.my_region', 'forecast') }}"

Template variables

State-based template entities have the special template variable this available in their templates. The this variable aids self-referencing of an entity’s state and attribute in templates.
