  • How can i get weather for my city??

    Hi guys .... I not a guru at any of this....... i'm trying to get the weather for my city (Richards bay, South Africa) in RR but for some reason it does not pick up. I tried adding the name in RR config but still no luck. I think maybe there is no Weather forecast for my city on where RR pulls the info from. Is there a way to change it so it looks at another website or data source to retrieve the weather data?

    thanks in advance.

      This would most likely have to be a seperate weather PI taylored to another sites data. I would be 99% sure that their data is not identical to the weather.com's data. So that it could properly parse the data correctly.

        The information could be parsed, as Blue said, but it would need to be a custom script. Weather Underground does have the weather for Richards bay, South Africa.

        There are even RSS feeds for Weather Underground making it a bit easier to parse for sure.

            I know this is an old thread now, but thought I'd post in case anyone found this in a search.. I have updated the weather plugin to work with wunderground.com - you should be able to poll weather from that location with it.

              Wow Guino, I had no idea you were working on the weather plugin. I had been working on a new weather plugin as well, using World Wide Weather's feed. I had it mostly done. Well it is good to see there is a replacement already. Do you have a link to the new dll? Or will it just be a part of the next RR update?

                The weather in my city is so very different compared to the closest city the previous plugin used that did not include my city...... which basically rendered the plugin useless to me. But now i can put my weather skin back! Much appreciated for your time and effort.

                I stand with the same question as JohnWPB.........Where will i find this plugin?
