Hi guys,
	I use Cumulus connected to my Davis Vantage Pro 2.  I use a serial connection because its over 11 years old now.  Cumulus supports many weather stations and also has the ability to upload direct to Weather Underground and a web page if desired.

I use PYWWS to read from my weatherstation, which is similar to yours, and it includes a built-in script to convert its internal format to APRS. Runs on Linux and there's a bit of scripting involved to glue them together, but it's not too hard.

The APRS spec (being American) specifies weather beacons should be in imperial/US customary units. Part of the changes I had to make to PYWWS was to de-metricify the weather data before beaconing it.
