VClouds Weather by VClouds VClouds Weather by VClouds

This is an old version. For a fully updated version of this skin check out VClouds Weather 2 and my new Glasses theme.


My first Rainmeter skin - a detailed vertical weather skin.
it includes 3 sets with 8 skins each, that shows weather conditions - from current weather to a full 9 day forecast from weather.com.

To change the weather to your city location right click the skin, click edit skin, scroll down to Location and read the instructions.

* The Today/Tonight line is taken from Shivaism's Large Clean Weather skin. shivaism.deviantart.com/art/La…

- Make sure to read the instructions ;)
- Also check this video that I found for easy installation instructions www.youtube.com/watch?v=SE_JZP…

Updates:
13.12.2011 - Temporary fix for the weather.com update issues. everything should work except for the last forecast day in the 9 days variant.
3.11.2013 - Fixed Tonight forecast not showing thanks to josey-wells.
20.1.2014 - Fixed Tonight forecast not showing up again. thanks to josey-wells.

Great skin using this older version in TECH-A. Any help would be great!  Weather.ini listing has following..
;-- WEATHER ICONS -- folder Path for the weather icons and their size.
H=76
W=76
PreserevAspectRatio=1
But there is no listing for folder path?  Also get constant error messages in log for .png images or icons.
Could someone assist, with link to image/icon pack for this and location to place them!  Greatly appreciated.

I also tried to change the colors of the texts and the thing went crazy on me, so i left it alone....lol

Just in case anyone is still looking for a fix to the "one day ahead" problem, I found a workaround. It's slightly fussy, but it fixes the dates.

In the .ini file, look for the heading called [Meterdate+#] (1 = tomorrow, 2= the next day, etc)
 
Under that you'll see:
MeasureName=MeasureDate+# (same number as the heading)

You need to change the number in the second line to be one less than the first, i.e. change MeasureDate+2 to MeasureDate +1, change MeasureDate+3 to MeasureDate +2, and so on.

So it will look like this:
[Meterdate+2]
MeasureName=MeasureDate+1

Save, refresh the skin, and that should fix the rest of the dates so they match with the current calendar.
Unfortunately it removes the date from beneath the Tomorrow heading (using +0 instead of +1), but everything else syncs up, and that's what matters.

I hope that helps some people!

VClouds Awesome fix, but the day displays a date one day ahead (ex. Friday, May 20th displays as Friday May 21st ) I've been through the code but cant find the bug, any fix on the date...... I love this skin btw !!!

*Edit: Dates are displaying properly, for those of you wondering about the Tonight display, it can be fixed by pasting the code below over the existing ;Today and ;Tonight sections :

To fix the empty values from dead links, do the following.

Open the relevant .ini in your favorite text editor.

Search and replace this:
Url=xml.weather.com/weather/local/

With this:
Url=wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/weat…

This skin is no longer supported but you can edit it yourself and replace the line:

Url=http_://xml.weather.com/weather/local/#Location#?cc=*&unit=#Unit#&dayf=1

^ Delete the "_" after http ^

With:

Url=http_://wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/weather/local/#Location#?cc=*&unit=#Unit#&dayf=1

^ Delete the "_" after http ^

Do this for all the days in the skin and make sure the day number at the end of the line match with the line you replace.

There shouldn't be.  He just added that so DeviantArt didn't make it into a link.

Do a find/replace of "xml.weather.com" to "wxdata.weather.com/wxdata".  Don't include the quotes.

I spent hours looking looking for a solution for Vclouds Weather when my rainmeter app stopped working. Lucky I decided to look at this version. Any idea what caused it to stop working? I installed another weather app but you have the best looking one. I'm glad this solution worked. Maybe in version 3 you can create a live radar map. I saw that on the Realistic Weather app for rainmeter. I would definitely pay for that. Or at least give a fat donation for your time and effort.

Hello!

Might try v2 later, but for now, this v1.5 edition of VClouds is just the Rainmeter theme I've been looking for!

It was VERY easy to 'tweak' to fit my specific needs. It's a PERFECT replacement for the now-defunct Windows Weather Gadget...

I'm currently using Neon Space (which uses a modified version of your original script), Vclouds, and Vclouds 2.0 and although I've imput USCA0741 for my code, nothing happens after I refresh the skin. Am I missing something? www.weather.com gave me USCA0741 for my 8 digit code, but nothing happens after inputting this into all three versions of this skin.

What am I doing wrong?

VClouds Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2014
I tried your code using VClouds Weather 2 and it works fine. the original vclouds weather was not updated in a long time and it might be broken. I don't know what 'Neon Space' is using in its code but it might be broken too.

Acidated Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2014
I see. Well, I downloaded VClouds Weather 2 and found the interface, input my code and clicked 'SET'. When I refreshed the skin, it still shows 0's and says:

Please Standby
Loading Weather...

It never changes from that. Even after refresh, nothing loads.

I've gone to weather.com again and got this in the URL instead:
www.weather.com/weather/today/…

I enter 96067:4:US as my code as well as 960674US and still nothing changes. I've tried your skin to no avail; your skin modified for Tech-A and Tech-B and neither of them loaded anything but 0's. There must be something that I'm missing other than to just enter LOCATION=USCA0741. Why would skin not load?

I don't know, your code works fine for me... sometimes weather.com have problems in some areas and refuse to load.
you can also try to restart your router and computer and see if that helps.

Allright. Figures "it's not you, it's me", lol. I rebooted my box, but not my router. I'll give that a go and hopefully get this sodden thing working. Your skin looks to good for me not to try everything I can to use it. Thanks anyway for your help at getting it to work. I'll let you know either way if it worked :P

This is a fabulous skin! Is there a string value in the data you're extracting from that indicates dew point? Given that I've made my own mods to your config file, I would add dew point to the current conditions section.
