There's one fatal flaw in the design: the front of a Stevenson screen is supposed to face away from the Sun, while the solar panel is supposed to angle toward the sun. With this design, either your measurements will be unreliable (box facing toward the sun), or the solar panel will be working at minimal efficiency (box facing away from the sun).

Hello- I did a few revision of the housing and was going to post them once complete. However I have had some issues with the programming. I can not get the script to compile and now the error stops at missing the library at first I was getting the error on the BME280 but found that library. Does anyone have the wire.h missing library needed?

I saw your original article posted somewhere else last year. Curious, I began to read more and your project became the core idea of my own version of your weather station. In mine, I not only use the BME280 for environmental data, but I also have a connection to OpenWeatherMap for collection of local information, such as wind speed and direction. I also added NTP for time. And instead of using a cloud sourced app for the phone, I created an HTTP page to display the data in text format. I also added MQTT to send the data to my Mac, where I run Telegraf, InfluxDB, and Grafana for graphs of battery voltage, temperature, pressure, humidity and dew point. I've gone so far as to create a version that uses LoRa instead of the Wemos mini D1. That version will let me place a node, collecting just temperature, pressure, humidity and battery voltage readings, out in my pasture. All of my nodes use MQTT, so I can use Grafana to visualize all of them. I'm circling back to your project now that I have a 3D printer, a Prusa I3. I like your case, a lot. Thanks ever so much for your inspiration!

Thanks for this object!
I would like to make some minor modifications to the design (move the board holder up and make room for a 2x18650 holder), would it be possible to get the source files?

I like your solar box design with one exception. The print is very long at about 8 hours. This said, if there is a flaw with the print you have wasted hours and filament. The box would be better to be split into smaller pieces this way if anything goes wrong you can simply print the bad part and fix the problem.

Very cool!
Did you conformal coat the boards with nail polish or other clear paint/lacquer to protect the components and solder joints from corrosion or moisture?
