Issue, API seems to work until I put in my location and then it dies

Try restarting Rainmeter.

Be sure to enter the latitude first and then the longitude.

If it still doesn't work, go to Documents \ Rainmeter \ Skins \ ASTROWeather \ Resources open the Variables file and enter the coordinates here.

Then refresh the skin.

1.Перейдите на сайт

2.Найдите свой город по названию.

3.Увеличьте масштаб, чтобы получить более детальное представление, затем перейдите к точному местоположению (улица, здание) и нажмите на карту.

4.Вставьте значения широты и долготы в поля ниже и нажмите клавишу «Ввод».

Всё,я уже решил эту проблему.Спасибо вам за помощь и за такие скены про погоду.У вас еще есть какие нибудь скина кроме погоды?
