Actual Rainmeter by WyzzyMoon Actual Rainmeter by WyzzyMoon
It's called rainmeter and than almost no one measures rain.
I couldn't find anyone that did this before but there probably is though.
It is the Rainmeter logo and an actual Rain-meter for Rainmeter.

It was meant as a joke but it actually works now!
Enter your weather code in the Varables.inc file to make it work for your location ( London by default ).
And you will get the precipitation forecast visualised by the Rainmeter logo.
In varables.inc you can also change the colors and size of the skin.

Changelog

This skin doesn't load when changing to a layout that has it saved in it.

Im pretty new to rainmeter, and I was wondering if there would be a way to configure this skin to show/hide another skin based on the % value of rain. So if the precipitation is above a certain point it will show another skin with a rain effect on the desktop, and if its below a certain point it will hide the skin.

That's possible. I don't know how good you are with coding but you would need to work with bangs. You can add an if statement to one of the meters and make it show/hide a rain skin based on the percentage.

Thanks! I'll give it a shot. I may be wrong, but wouldn't an if statement go in a measure?

Update: The If statement does need to be in a measure. And I got it to work, thanks!

I'm new to rainmeter.. and I can't seem to find a variables.inc file! I feel like an idiot, but can someone help?

Joined Deviantart just to ask this.. I love the concept of this skin!

Or go to Documents>Rainmeter>Skins>Rainmeter>resources
Then you find variables.inc.

No problem, welcome to Deviantart!
If you open you rainmeter window and rightclick on the "Rainmeter" folder in the sidebar that contains the skin, you can click on "open folder".
There you'll find a folder called Resources, and in there you'll find variables.inc.

Let me know if you can't find it

Percentage of rain, it's a forecast for the day

is there anyway to make it smaller? I'd love to use it but doesn't fit in with the rest of my theme due to the size :(

In variables. Inc you can change the size and color!

Thank you! It seems to work now, but it's still unloading itself when I reboot. I wonder if I'm doing something wrong ...

Dunno if you're maintaining this, but after loading it in Rainmeter 3.3.0 on Win7, there's a message in the error log that says: "Extra operation." I'm kind of new to Rainmeter, so I have no idea what that means, but the skin itself seems to automatically unload when I restart Rainmeter.

As you maby guessed from the description, it's indeed not my highest priority skin.
I build this on a rainy day but it seems like having no rain in the prediction causes these errors.
Instead of "0" it gets nothing and that causes the formula to end on a * which is an incorrect formula.
It works fine with worse weather ; ) But it should also work when it's dry so I'll look it to it.
Thanks for letting me know anyway.  I'll see what I can do
