I just signed in because HUD Vision's weather thingie wasn't working all day but...now it is. Strange... Perhaps it's your internet connection?

Ok... The weather isn't working for any of my Rainmeter themes it seems. I haven't seen the weather come up since yesterday morning or so... Is anyone else having this problem or is it just me? Can AdBlockPlus affect this?

its because weather.com switched off their xoap feed to registered users only, probably a sad attempt at trying to make money from people that want to display weather information.. kinda sad to see an informational site cave to such idiocy.. rainmeter is going to use accuweather which demand skin designers and users to display the accuweather logo on their skins.. very lame.

her is the resolution for weather.com!
go to and register for free:



An now replace the url of the weather skin to:

Url=http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/#Zip#?cc=*&unit=#U
nit#&dayf=5&link=xoap&prod=xoap&par=[replace with your partner id]&key=[replace with your key]

nit#&dayf=5&link=xoap

& prod=xoap&par=[replace with your partner id]&key=[replace with your key]

sorry ther was a problem with the link above - just join the two parts of the link and delete the space after the first & of the 2nd part ;-)

I think I missed something.... Part of it is I don't understand the UNIT bit... but let me show you what I have:

URL=http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/USWA0422?cc=*&unit
=#U
nit#&dayf=5&link=xoap &link=xoap&prod=xoap&par=[1127233555]&key=[50326551ab7ef26a]

How is that looking??

Thanks,

Thankful this forum exists! Was pulling my hair out like everyone else. Thought the code got screwed up somehow. Thanks to warlord666 & heistdelux for allowing me to keep the rest of my hair! (-;

Is there any way to get the weather info to automatically refresh more often than every hour or so like it does now? I'd like to update every 10 minutes or so if possible. I tried changing UpdateRate= but that did nothing.

Also, when I hit the "button" on the top left that is supposed to refresh the weather info, I get a large N/A. What's up with that?

Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered. I love everything else about this skin.
