...
here you go
That package does not show the same image you posted, but has other issues.

Your text style has "StringAlign=Right", but your meters have X=80. When you use "StringAlign=Right", you have to set the X value of the meters to a value large enough to prevent clipping the text on the left side of the skin.

This is what I initially see:
clima1.png
By changing the style and meter X values from 80 to 180, the skin will show this:
clima2.png
Here is your skin code with those changes.
Climacons Weather.ini

Edit "Clima\@Resources\WeatherComVariables.inc", change Language=en-US, to Language=en-GB , save, and then refresh the skin to have Celsius values.

Note:
Before you start, don't forget to close Rainmeter!!! (right click on the Rainmeter icon in the taskbar and choose Exit)

Hi guys

good morning, again... I don't know what could have happened :confused:
I was able to replace the variables and measures needed to get your skin working again.
I created a new package that will install this as a new skin in folder ClimaV3 in your skins folder; your original code will not be changed.

Changes:
Your orignal Variables.inc is not used. Instead, to adjust your location or to change from Fahrenheit to Celsius, edit '@Resources/WeatherComJSONVariables.inc'. Set LocationCode and language according to the instructions in that file.

Note: I already made the needed changes to show metric Language=en-CA and your LocationCode=ARBA0009 in that file.
