Yes... looks like Yahoo finally changed their website. :(
The HTML parsing code will need to be completely re-written. It is nice to have this as a backup and hopefully Eclectic-Tech will be willing to redo his templates. But I'm not sure if it is worth the effort to rewrite the code, as Yahoo's weather is vastly inferior to weather.com's anyway.

With the approaching holiday season, it is unlikely I will be able to look into rewriting the code for a while. I plan to get this working again with as little pain as possible for myself and users of Yahoo for weather data.

As SilverAzide mentioned, weather.com is a vastly better source for weather details that are updated many times faster than Yahoo, so there is a chance I may have to let this alternate source skin finally die... :(

Well, I hope you do get a chance to get this working again. Hopefully you can find a way that is simple for you and won't break constantly like so many other HTML scrapers.
