Howdy! I've got my weather station board with a nrt52840 controller in it working properly and I'm able to see sensor data in the serial out. I have a neopixel light string hooked up to an Arduino Nano that works properly as well. I'm wondering the best way to drive the lights from sensor data. I've been trying to control the neopixel lights with the weather station board directly, and it doesn't seem possible. I'm curious whether I should try to take serial data into my computer and then drive the lights via arduino that way, but it seems a little overkill. Any suggestions?

Ultimately, I'd like to trigger an event on the neopixel lights when the weather station detects a lightning strike.

Thank you for your time!

Combine the sketches and define a variable to output the serial data from the weather station, then pass that variable to the neopixel/led driver's section of the code
