Seems like it does not like metric in the URL for the feed, same location just switched units.

Yeah, apparently missing the icon code and the barometric pressure with that code.

As I said, I don't think weather.com is all that interested in that wxdata feed anymore. They keep it limping along, but it doesn't update as often as it used to and when it gets "broken", they don't seem in any great rush to fix it.

If there was a better, more reliable, worldwide feed that returned a robust amount of information in a timely way, I'd be all for it, but I don't know of one.

Same thing here, but it seems to be back to normal now. Looking and Foreca to see if I can do something with that web page.

I would be very hesitant to commit to anything that isn't an XML / RSS / ATOM feed. Screen scraping a site can only lead to tears.

I was planing on contacting them to see if they have one.
