NEW GUIDE: eInk / ePaper Weather Station #epaper #Airlift #AdafruitLearningSystem #IoT #InternetOfThings @Adafruit @Cogliano

A super new guide in the Adafruit Learning System today! The eInk / ePaper Weather Station is the no-solder, Internet-connected ePaper weather display you have been clamoring for.

In this project, the Adafruit Metro M4 Express Airlift and the Tri-Color ePaper Shield work happily together to create a weather station with the current weather conditions and forecast for your area.

A wonderful thing happened when the Metro M4 Express AirLift was released. It opened Arduino sketches to the Internet, freeing them from the confines of their closed environment. It is now officially a “thing” in a world of the Internet of Things (IoT). In this project, the Metro M4 Express AirLift will grab weather data for your local area from the internet and display it on an easy to read ePaper display

The Adafruit Tri-Color ePaper Shield used with this project is a 2.7″ ePaper shield that displays black, white and red pixels. It easily connects to the Metro with no soldering needed since the headers are already assembled on both the Metro and the ePaper shield.



This DIY weather station displays weather information for your local area in either Celsius or Fahrenheit units on an ePaper display. The displayed information includes:

  • Current date
  • Current temperature
  • Current weather conditions
  • Forecast data for the next 12 hours in 6 hour increments
  • Weather icons for weather conditions and forecasts
  • City name
  • Display current and forecasted hot temperatures in red
  • Sunrise and sunset times
  • Description and icon of current moon phase

Must be seen to appreciate the data all displayed, much like more expensive professional displays.
