Weather.com does not give any xml source now. Is there any update?

 I think they deprecated xml weather feed. All weather skins depending on it stopped working. I'm using openweathermap.org/api feed, but it requires change in code to make it work and free API key.

It stopped working for me a few days ago, and no amount of rebooting or refreshing has helped. Has something on weather.com's end changed, do you know?

I can't seem to find the code to use for my area, whenever I enter go to the page for my area it shows a complicated URL unlike the simple ones I see in the notepad, and even if I set my primary location it won't change the default page which seems to have a code

Did I do it right? 

[Variables]
;Please replace your location code of Weather.com below, e.g: Taipei is TWXX0021.
;You can check it on Weather.com or Google.
;And you may also delete "&unit=m" if you prefer the Fahrenheit Scale.
URL=xml.weather.com/weather/local/…
Font=Segoe UI

It doesn't seem to work though. :c

Thx for the great skins. Im using all Thumbys :)

I have one question tho : i want to replace all the weather texts in my own language using the substitute formula. I presume it's under [MeterDesc]. Is there any other line i need to add to make it work ?

[MeterDesc]
MeasureName=MeasureWeatherDesc
Meter=STRING
X=84
Y=88
FontColor=14, 42, 38
FontSize=10
FontFace=Segoe UI
StringStyle=NORMAL
AntiAlias=1
StringAlign=CENTER
Substitute="Fair":"Beau"

Thanks for your help.

I reply for myself : To change the weather conditions and put them in your own language, you need to add the substitute formula under [MeasureWeatherDesc]. such as :

[MeasureWeatherDesc]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\WebParser.dll
Url=[MeasureWeatherRSS]
StringIndex=5
Substitute="Fair":"Beau","Sunny":"Ensoleillé" and so on ...

You should pack them all when they are finished and offer a black version.
Good work indeed!

Hey I like this alot I just dont know how to get the weather from my local area. Help please?
murasaki55's avatar
-go to weather.yahoo.com and find your location
-after you found it, click the RSS button located on the left side, now you will see the code in the address bar. something like: "TWXX0021"
-now open the config of the rainmeter skin by right-clicking the skin and selecting Skin Menu>Edit Skin
-locate this line: "URL=h ttp://xml.weather.com/weather/local/RPXX0048?cc=*&unit=m&dayf=6" and replace the bold text part with your code.
