Uses the JSON API data from http://weather.com to return weather information for Current, Today/Tonight, and Tomorrow.

NOTE: This version corrects the @Include files to reflect the new V3 version of the JSON code.

Right-click the skin to see how to configure the Location Code and other attributes.

Use "Choose Location" to search for and set the Location Latitude and Longitude desired.

Simply search for and find your location, and click on the Latitude and Longitude to set them and refresh the Weather.com skin.

Note: You can click the Location Name (Fort Hunt in this example) to find the location on Google Maps, to confirm your choice.

Use "Edit Weather Variables" to set the language code (i.e. en-US) to return the values and units of measure from weather.com in.

Use "Edit Translation Variables" to set the "labels" used in the skin to your language.

Use "Edit General Variables" to set fonts and colors for the skin.

Updated the skin to better handle some translations.

The Observation Date Month/Day are now automatically translated based on the value you set in #Language# (i.e. en-US)
This is a minor change to WeatherComJSONMeasures.inc.

You can now define translations for the labels used in the skin Context Menus.
Right-Click and select "Edit Translation Variables" to set these.

Also, replaced the "alert" .ico files with more distinct and higher quality .png files.

Alert levels are: 4 (info) Green | 3 (low) Gold | 2 (medium) Orange | 1 (high) Red

New .rmskin in the first post of this thread.

I'm new to RainMeter and really like your widget.

Can we only use ONE of the same widget at a time?

How do I get to have multiple Weather.com widgets running at the same time? Every time I try to get another Weather.com going, the 1st one disappears.

easy just copy paste the folder and rename it to something else you can find the folder @ C:\Users\yourusername\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\
and if you want have it in the same folder just create a folder in that folder and put the ini in a new folder
otherwise he will switch between the ini files in the same folder and that is what you didn't want...

BRILLIANT! I sat here looking at your post for a few seconds in disbelief of my ignorance because I couldn't believe that I was overthinking for a solution. LOL! Thank you!

Just right-click it. The name is at the top.
