Weather codes for what feed?

For https://wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/weather/local/, which is probably the best and most reliable RSS / XML format feed out there right now, I recommend:

http://wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/search/search?where=YourCityName

So for instance for me:

http://wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/search/search?where=Fort Hunt, Virginia

Which will end up as:

http://wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/search/search?where=Fort%20Hunt,%20Virginia

Would return:

Code: Select all

<search ver="3.0">
<loc id="USVA0944" type="1">Fort Hunt, VA</loc>
</search>
