Yahoo Weather

Weather.com

It looks like Weather.com may have finally (after warning that they would do so for years) killed the XML weather feed that was based on a URL like:

[Variables]
LocationCode=USOK0369
UnitOfMeasure=f
DaysForecast=3

URL=http://xml.weather.com/weather/local/#LocationCode#?cc=*&unit=#UnitOfMeasure#&dayf=#DaysForecast#

That no longer works as of this writing. However, it appears that an alternative URL, like:

URL=http://wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/weather/local/#LocationCode#?cc=*&unit=#UnitOfMeasure#&dayf=#DaysForecast#

Will work, and seems to return the same data as the old xml.weather.com URL. So in theory, you should be able to just change the URL in your skin(s) and get things working again.

However

I would not particularly count on this lasting forever though. Weather.com really has no further interest in providing "free" feeds of their data, but would like everyone to "subscribe" to an API-based solution that they can monetize. There are rumors that even the alternative URL might be shutdown or restricted. Might have a limit on the number of times it can be accessed in a day, or restricted to some locations based on IP but not others, or who knows what. It might not be a terrible idea to at least start thinking about alternatives, like Yahoo Weather or Weather Underground or various other weather sources.

Yahoo Weather Feed

Code: Select all

[Variables]
; Weather variables
;http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?w=2378074&u=f
; You MUST set the Location variable to the Yahoo WOEID code for your location.
; Go to: http://woeid.rosselliot.co.nz/
; Enter your city, state, region, country as needed to get your WOEID.
; Change the Location variable below.
Location=23418210
; Unit is "f" for Fahrenheit temperature and other "imperial" measures, "c" for Celsius temperature and "metric" measures.
; This is case-sensitive. Lower case only.
Unit=f

[MeasureYahooWeather]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=WebParser.dll
URL=http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?w=#Location#&u=#Unit#
RegExp=(?siU)<title>.*- (.*)</title>.*<link>(.*)/\*(.*)</link>.*<description>(.*)</description>.*<language>(.*)</language>.*<lastBuildDate>(.*)</lastBuildDate>.*<yweather:location city="(.*)".*region="(.*)".*country="(.*)".*<yweather:units temperature="(.*)".*distance="(.*)".* pressure="(.*)".*speed="(.*)".*<yweather:wind chill="(.*)".*direction="(.*)".*speed="(.*)".*<yweather:atmosphere humidity="(.*)".* visibility="(.*)".*pressure="(.*)".* rising="(.*)".*<yweather:astronomy sunrise="(.*)".*sunset="(.*)".*<title>(.*)</title>.*<width>(.*)</width>.*<height>(.*)</height>.*<link>(.*)</link>.*<url>(.*)</url>.*<title>(.*)</title>.*<geo:lat>(.*)</geo:lat>.*<geo:long>(.*)</geo:long>.*<link>(.*)/\*(.*)</link>.*<pubDate>(.*)</pubDate>.*<yweather:condition  text="(.*)".*code="(.*)".*temp="(.*)".*date="(.*)".*<img src="(.*)".*Current Conditions:</b><br />\s(.*)<BR />.*Forecast:</b><BR />\s(.*)<br />.*\s(.*)<br />.*<a href="(.*)/\*(.*)">.*provided by <a href="(.*)" >(.*)</a>.*<yweather:forecast day="(.*)".*date="(.*)".*low="(.*)".*high="(.*)".*text="(.*)".*code="(.*)".*<yweather:forecast day="(.*)".*date="(.*)".*low="(.*)".*high="(.*)".*text="(.*)".*code="(.*)".*
That RegExp will return virtually every piece of useful information from the feed for the current conditions, today's forecast, and tomorrow's forecast.

Here are the icons I use. You don't need to use the same ones, but be sure the numbers of the icons you use visually matches what these represent.
