If you already have Win10 Widgets installed, then I recommend downloading the "patch" from Win10 Widget Weather Patch.

Thanks for the update. Great work. The only issue I'm having is that the current temperature shows as the high for today. The forecast shows highs/lows, but today shows current/low. Anyone else having this issue?

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

The skin shows the forecast high until some time mid-afternoon, when there is no longer a high temperature from TWC, the skin shows the high temperature since 7AM; it does this rather than showing you 'nothing' as the high temperature.

When I look at TWC right now, it shows a high today of 80 for me, so I know the correct high is there, but the skin is showing the current temperature of 72 as the high. Is it possible the skin is pulling from the wrong field? On their website, I also see "feels like 72" and "hourly forecast 72" so maybe its one of those fields, and not the "daily forecast field" which is showing 80? Sorry to bug, it's just that knowing today's high in the morning is one of the most important things about the widget. Thanks for your time. Update: My skin just went to current temp 73 and todays high 73, while TWC went to current temp 73, feels like 73, hourly forecast 73, and daily forecast 81. It definitely seems like the current day high is not pulling from the daily forecast field. However, the next 3 days on the skin all match the daily forecast field.

Yes, same issue here. To clarify, in the Large and Extra Large versions, the four day forecast section, today is showing the current temp, rather than the high for the day.

To correct Today's High Temperature Forecast, edit the skin in a text editor, and add DynamicVariables=1 to [MeasureAfternoon] section.

I will post a corrected download by this weekend 8/30/2020.

Awesome! Thank you so much!!!!

Can confirm, the Lat/Lon works.


It's not necessary to trim the six bazillion decimal places down to what is shown in the examples; it works just fine with the full 15 places from the site.

Working great... However, IDK what happened to the size... It doesn't match the other widgets.

Size
Eclectic-Tech's avatar

The BackgroundWidth variable is set to 384 which matches my other widgets. To change it , edit '@ Resources\variables.inc' and set the value to match your other skins, which get their width from 'Win10 Widgets\@resources\variables.ini'

I must be missing something, but I looked through all the options given when one right-clicks the skin on ExtraLarge and saw no Choose Location on the initial menu or in any sub-menus.

Rightclick
Eclectic-Tech's avatar

"Custom skin actions" will offer options to control the weather location and language.

SovereignGFC's avatar

The only options I see under that menu are manual editing options. When I open the Weather Variables config file it says "The EASIEST and likely BEST way is to right-click..."

Is there any way to have this link to a different weather site? I'd like it to get weather data from PWSweather.com so that I can get my personal weather station info displayed.

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

No. It is coded to get weather data from The Weather Channel JSON data.

To use another site would require created hundreds of new measures...


EDIT: From what I saw at the link you provided, that data can not be read by Rainmeter's webparser. It may not be possible to get that data into a Rainmeter weather skin.

talostiberseptim's avatar

Dang. Well thanks for the reply, much appreciated.

Is it possible to change the color of the background? I want to change the black color to green so that it matches my Windows desktop accent colors?

KrishnaDasArt's avatar

Actually, figured it out. Basically right click on your Win 10 weather widget. Then click on "Custom Skin Actions", and then click on "Edit General Variables", then open up with your text editor. Then Control+F to the "BackgroundColor" variable, then change its value to your desired background color in RGB. Also, the 4th value in the RGB value is the opacity.

Stopped working mate, and none of your solutions are working. Please fix this.
