I have just about given up using Rainmeter at least for weather. It seems to work for a while and then stops. I don't know anymore which skins are going to work and which ones will not. For now, guess I'll just give it (and me) a rest. :?

Have you kept up with checking the latest here: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=34689 ??
The skins signified by the green dot work with the latest weather.com data. Non-dotted non-weather.com skins should work too. A weather.com-based skin without a dot is probably broken (or the author has not contacted the OP). Finally, any weather.com-based skin with a release date before approximately June 5th 2020 is almost guaranteed to be broken.

Thanks, will do. I deleted all my old weather skins and updated with the "green" ones. Will try that for a while. Appreciate your suggestion.

Hello.. is there going to be a fix for the 1st day's high temp having "---" most of the time or is that an issue unique to me?

Must be you.... or the location you are using. The current version of this skin doesn't do this, AFAIK.

Just went to the weather.com website and put in 3 different cities and they all returned --- for the high for today. So now I see it's probably not just me but also, it's a weather.com issue.

It's just how weather.com works. The high for today is a "forecast", and after a certain point in the afternoon, it doesn't make sense to try to "forecast" the "daytime", as that is now not a "forecast", but "history". So weather.com will return empty, null values for all the "forecast" values for "daytime" after a certain point.

The way I handle this in the skin this thread is about, is like this:

Code: Select all

[MeasureToggleAtNight]
Measure=String
Group=Weather
String=[@ForecastTodayDayTemperature]
DynamicVariables=1
IfMatch=^$
IfMatchAction=[!SetOption MeterTodayIcon MeasureName "@ForecastTodayNightIcon"][!SetOption MeterTodayName MeasureName "@ForecastTodayNightPart"][!SetOption MeterTodayHighLow MeasureName "@CurrentTemperatureMaxSince7AM"][!SetOption MeterTodayPrecipitation MeasureName "@ForecastTodayNightPrecipitationPercent"][!SetOption MeterTodayHighLow InlineSetting "Color | 160,160,160,255"]
IfNotMatchAction=[!SetOption MeterTodayIcon MeasureName "@ForecastTodayDayIcon"][!SetOption MeterTodayName MeasureName "@ForecastTodayDayPart"][!SetOption MeterTodayHighLow MeasureName "@ForecastTodayDayTemperature"][!SetOption MeterTodayPrecipitation MeasureName "@ForecastTodayDayPrecipitationPercent"][!SetOption MeterTodayHighLow InlineSetting "None"]
So if there is no temperature being returned for today "daytime", I use the values for "nighttime" instead.

OK, that's not a bug... what you are seeing is that it is "night", so there's no more daytime forecast temperature. Once it is night (which weather.com has decided starts at 3 or 4? PM), it stops sending "forecast day data" and only sends "forecast night data". Many skins and even the weather.com site then put "--" for the temperature because there is no data (which makes sense as it is a forecast that is no longer applicable). This skin however, and some others, will instead switch over to using "max temp since 7AM" instead of reporting a blank or "--" value (this skin also dims the value to let you know as well).

This skin uses a similar idea but replaces the high | low temp with "Low" temp.
