So, Ath, your locations seem to display properly for me.   :huh:  I'm going to have to study this issue a bit more and see if it's something I can code around.

Not sure what happened, but it's now off with 1.5 day, I think:

Screenshot - 03-03-2016 , 08_30_50.pngRelease: sWeather (tray-based weather app)

I chose Codyville as it's the demo-location included with sWeather, but it's 6 hours behind my location's time.
Now the forecast days are different, even though on both locations it's Thursday, March 3rd.

Yes, the five and ten-day forecasts come from a different part of the Yahoo ecosystem, so that's just how it is.  However, at least, it appears I have the dates right.

I'm not using the 10 day forecast usually and I seem to be the only one not seeing day 6-10 (I've turned it back off already). Your explanation would suggests it's blocked by our network security because of the different url involved. No problem for me.

Looks like it's fixed then :Thmbsup:

Since early this morning (about 1am 25 Mar 16) sWeather is running but it isn't accessing the weather server.  Is something up with the server or is Windows blocking it (on my end).  I've updated to the latest and the behavior is the same.  If the problem is on my end someone is going to have to guide me on how to fix it since I am not that IT-savvy.

Hi, finchley, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :)

Since early this morning (about 1am 25 Mar 16) sWeather is running but it isn't accessing the weather server.  Is something up with the server or is Windows blocking it (on my end).  I've updated to the latest and the behavior is the same.  If the problem is on my end someone is going to have to guide me on how to fix it since I am not that IT-savvy.

https://developer.yahoo.com/weather/

Apologies for this; it's not your fault.  Unfortunately, Yahoo have changed their Weather API that sWeather uses.  I'll try to find some time to update sWeather to work with the new API.

Seeing the same problem as finchley, except for me, it started 2-3 days ago.
Upgraded to v1.5.8 build 1, but no joy.
Just stumbled on the website message posted yesterday.

Any plans to move to a different provider/API? Curious what the advantage is to using Yahoo, especially since their data/detail isn't as good as other services.

Hi, chance of sun, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :Thmbsup:

Any plans to move to a different provider/API? Curious what the advantage is to using Yahoo, especially since their data/detail isn't as good as other services.

No plans currently.

The problem is that a lot of the other sites' "free" API access limits the number of total API calls per hour/day, etc.  Though I have no real data to back it up, sWeather seems pretty popular, and I fear that it would exceed most sites' free API limits.  An option is to pay ($$$) for more API access but I don't get near enough donations to cover using a pay tier for most sites' APIs.

Yahoo!'s API is free, easy to work with (until now, sorta), and they never seemed to have an API call limit issue with sWeather.  They recently changed things so that I have to use OAuth (pain in the ass) to access an entirely different API than what sWeather was using beforehand. 

Which service did you have in mind?

I've just updated sWeather to v1.5.9 which should support Yahoo!'s new weather API.  Please download and test.

Website | Download
v1.5.9 - 2016-03-27
    * Updated sWeather to work with new Yahoo! Weather API.
    + Added Yahoo! logo as per new API's attribution guidelines:
      https://developer.yahoo.com/attribution/
    ! Fixed non-working "Full forecast" links.
    ! Fixed cursor when hovering over buttons and links.
    ! Right-click copy data now includes days 6-10 of the extended forecast.

Works great for me! Thank you for the dedication and hard work you've put into this - I really appreciate it!
