And can more days be added to the predictions?
You can, but I would not say it will be trivial to do. The skin as designed displays current, today/tonight and tomorrow.

If you want more than 3 days returned to the skin, you will need to change the Variable @Include3 in the skin, to one of the other .inc files that return more than the 3 days I have set by default. Instructions are in the skin.

Then you will need to add more "meters" to display the extra days. You can use what is there now as a template for how they should be coded, being careful to remember that every [section] in a Rainmeter skin must have a unique name.

Then change the meter [MeterAllBackground] to be larger/longer, to hold the new meters you create.

If you are willing to dig into coding in Rainmeter, adding more days is not terribly difficult. However, be aware that it's not really easy either.

Apart from what jsmorley said (i.e. adding additional info yourself using a more comprehensive .inc file from the package and writing new meters), you can look over an example of what can be done for this specific skin here (the code is meant to replace the contents of the Weather.com.ini file). It shows the rest of the days on scrolling or pushing the appropriate "buttons" while keeping the size of the skin mostly unchanged. Bear in mind that this was written some time ago and it was never meant to be a fully fledged released skin, hopefully it's still "compatible" with whatever changes occured in the original skin / INC files in the meantime.

Other users have also modified this skin (or designed others) to suit their purposes, so searching the forum for acceptable solutions is an option as well.

There are tons of other weather skins that may display more information without you having to do the hard work yourself. Check here:

Indeed - which reminds me that I never requested that my suite be added to the "new weather.com" compatible list, LOL (considering it's the only suite that I know of which can handle both V2 and V3 weather.com formats, even though the V2 is clearly obsolete nowadays). But then, by now, almost all new skins are, so, I guess I didn't see it as a critical necessity. :confused:

Good Evening Everyone,

I'm one of those guys who really likes the "Default" look of the illustro Rainmeter and with some minor modifications (Ala the color bar instead of the yellow for measureBar) I try to make apps "Conform" to that size and look.

I'm having fits trying to figure out how to do so with the weather.com rainmeter skin. I've changed all I can find to the "190" size as well as modified the background, I am hopeful I am just missing something really simple....and I will learn something new about formatting and working with the code. Id like the text either to stretch so it reaches the edges in a nice way (like most of them) or just be centralized.

You might want to start with illustroweather and modify it if desired...
Image

Note: The updated version (as of 06.11.2021) does not automatically toggle; instead simply left-click title to switch to 3-day. This uses your latitude and longitude to set the location; right-click the skin, select 'Custom skin actions, 'Edit weather variables' to set your values.

Edit: Uploaded the working JSON version to DA. :)

Works for me! I like simple. Thank you!
