One thing though is I haven't seen a skin that also shows the daily hourly forecast. Is this because weather.com does not provide a feed for it? if there is, where can I get it ?
If you want the hourly forecast, try Windows 10 Weather Enterprise Edition skin

Are there anywhere described all the exact weather condition names by their numbers (0-47)?

For instance:
.
.
.
11 - Light Rain,
.
.
.
20 - Mist,
.

This is the list I have for weather.com, that ties the icon numbers to a sense of what they stand for. Be very clear though, that this has nothing at all to do with the text that is returned by any weather feed. Those are flexible, changeable, and not in any way any kind of "standard". There is no direct link between the number and the exact text that is returned.

Code: Select all

0	tornado
1	tropical storm
2	hurricane
3	severe thunderstorms
4	thunderstorms
5	mixed rain and snow
6	mixed rain and sleet
7	mixed snow and sleet
8	freezing drizzle
9	drizzle
10	freezing rain
11	showers
12	showers
13	snow flurries
14	light snow showers
15	blowing snow
16	snow
17	hail
18	sleet
19	dust
20	foggy
21	haze
22	smoky
23	blustery
24	windy
25	cold
26	cloudy
27	mostly cloudy (night)
28	mostly cloudy (day)
29	partly cloudy (night)
30	partly cloudy (day)
31	clear (night)
32	sunny
33	fair (night)
34	fair (day)
35	mixed rain and hail
36	hot
37	isolated thunderstorms
38	scattered thunderstorms
39	scattered thunderstorms
40	scattered showers
41	heavy snow
42	scattered snow showers
43	heavy snow
44	partly cloudy
45	thundershowers
46	snow showers
47	isolated thundershowers

JSMorley's list is the best one I know of, but over the last few years of watching the TWC feed I've noted some variations that they have used. My curated list is as follows, any changes (highlighted) are based on observations of actual conditions that TWC used in their feed. There are a few cases, like 12 and 40, and 41, where they seem inconsistent and I have not seen them occur enough to decide which they mean.

0 - tornado
1 - tropical storm
2 - hurricane
3 - severe thunderstorms
4 - thunderstorms
5 - mixed rain and snow
6 - mixed rain and sleet
7 - mixed snow and sleet
8 - freezing drizzle
9 - drizzle
10 - freezing rain
11 - light rain
12 - heavy rain (not like 40?)
13 - snow flurries
14 - light snow showers
15 - blowing snow
16 - snow
17 - hail
18 - sleet
19 - dust
20 - foggy
21 - haze
22 - smoky
23 - blustery
24 - windy
25 - cold
26 - cloudy
27 - mostly cloudy (night)
28 - mostly cloudy (day)
29 - partly cloudy (night)
30 - partly cloudy (day)
31 - clear (night)
32 - sunny
33 - fair (night)
34 - fair (day)
35 - mixed rain and hail
36 - hot
37 - isolated thunderstorms
38 - scattered thunderstorms
39 - scattered rain
40 - heavy rain
41 - heavy snow / snow showers (day)?
42 - scattered snow showers
43 - blowing heavy snow
44 - partly cloudy (day)
45 - thundershowers (night)
46 - snow showers (night)
47 - isolated thundershowers (night)

Hope this helps! (Sorry, I could not figure out how to colorize code text.)

When I was working on making my skin Windows 10 Weather Enterprise Edition, which uses as a data source the TWC website (not the TWC feed), I identified in the source code of the web page 39 weather icons with code, the weather condition (not related to the text displayed on site that can vary) and image (print-screen).
I have attached the file containing the original icons found and a list of all the codes found + the unidentified codes yet.

I made for myself a skin variant that will alert me when the codes that have not yet been identified will be displayed.
I will update the file when I find a new code.
TWCOriginal Icons.zip

I've never seen TWC use icons 0, 1, or 2. I've set the location to the middle of tornado warnings, hurricanes, etc., and they always use icon 3 (severe thunderstorms). Not sure why...
