in the style of WIN10 WIDGETS based on JSMorley's JSON weather data.
Right-click skin, Select 'Custom skin actions', 'Edit Weather Variables'. In the file that opens, replace the Latitude and Longitude values with the values for your location, save the file, and refresh the skin.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
