v1.1.0 - 2011-09-27
    + Added ability to change the weather in your area if you don't like it!
      Well, not really, but it's a fun joke anyway.  Choose "Change the weather!?"
      from the tray or Options menu.  (Thanks, mouser)


It's now 105° F with light snow showers where I live.  =]

You know, I recently stopped using Weather Watcher because it developed that feature on its own (sort of). The first time it did it, while it was about 49F here in NJ, it was showing 88F and feels like 100F. It had magically changed my weather station to Noi Bai Airport in Hanoi, Vietnam. About a week or so later it changed my station to somewhere in Iraq.  ;D

There is a small chance that sWeather is not entirely up to some winter-weather conditions, over here in the metric system-world.
Now that it's freezing during the evenings and nights, sWeather doesn't show the minimum (Low) temperature if it's below 0 degrees centigrade:

Screenshot - 15-11-2011 , 22_32_19.png

The other temperature values all show negative values when needed, for as far as I can see.
Can't tell if It's also affecting the High temperature(s), as it's not that cold in some places yet :D

Screenshot - 15-11-2011 , 22_58_01.png

If I change the settings to non-metric it shows the expected figures for my location, but my brain doesn't comprehend the Fahrenheit numbers very well.

No need for any rush, but it would be nice if it got fixed.

This is almost certainly going to be an issue with the data (or lack thereof) in the Yahoo! XML feed that sWeather uses for its display data.  If you have time when it does this again, please verify the data from the following URL format:

Code: [Select]
http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?w=<WOEID>&u=<c|f>
Example:
Code: [Select]

You could check it out for a quite cold place (I just found some rather cold North American place :)) : (metric/Celcius)
Code: [Select]
http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?w=4224&u=cThe data looks rather OK to me, having all kinds of negative numbers in it?

Any progress on the low temperature issue yet? Local temperatures are probably going below 0 this week, so negative values in the display would be nice :D

There are just a few small things I'd like to ask, like an auto-refresh feature for the weather (or is it already there but the interval > 30 minutes?
Quote
I suppose I should mention this somewhere.  The interval is one hour since that's as often as Yahoo! Weather is updated.

Hi... I like this utility, only refresh rate should be higher.

I think Yahoo updates weather in half-hour, but even if it's one hour (or 5 minutes less) utility is not synchronized with Yahoo. It could lead up to two hours old reading in tray if refreshed just before Yahoo's next update.

Can it be configurable in options (.ini file) or at least around 15 minutes? Regards...

Hi, ZorMi, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.

Hi... I like this utility, only refresh rate should be higher.

You're right and I've been lax in adding that functionality so thanks for the nudge.  Here you go:

Website | Download
v1.2.2 - 2012-08-09
    + Added custom refresh settings.  (Thanks, ZorMi)
    * Removed the ANSI build from the archive.

That was quick.. :) thanks.

I made some temperature tray icons in colors for Celsius scale (blue-cold ... green-good... red-hot). It's not professional work but informative to me... 8)

You're welcome.  Let me know if it seems to work better.

Fantasic!  Those look great.  With your permission, I'd like to include them in the zip archive so all users can benefit.

Of course... but I made only -20°C to +40°C (my location).
Someone could improve, use a better font, lighter colors... etc. :)

@skwire - thanks for the new version.
This site WOEID lookup might interest you, it's quicker and easier than the Yahoo site.
.: I use K-Meleon - the browser you can control - but I love Pale Moon too :.

Very nice.  Thank you.  I did some digging and Yahoo! provide an API for the WOEID lookups so I added the functionality directly to sWeather.  This should really make it easy to add multiple locations.  You can even search on terms like "taj mahal" or "eiffel tower."  Very cool.  Here's a screenshot of the new sWeather Options panel.

This version also includes ZorMi's Celsius colour icons.  Thanks, again!

v1.2.3 - 2012-08-10
    + Added new WOEID lookup in the Options panel.
    + Added option for adding a "C" or an "F" to the temperature readouts. (Thanks, lanux128)
    + Included a new, Celsius colour, tray temperature theme made by ZorMi.
