I would prefer relative age of data instead of absolute, something like:

30°C Prague
(as of 39 minutes ago)

... since you are dealing with timezones now. :)

I did some digging and Yahoo! provide an API for the WOEID lookups so I added the functionality directly to sWeather.

Very good, it looks much better now. :) Few more hints:

Expanded table view should contain a column with time of last update, some data could be several hours old and unrealistic.

If Yahoo update schedule is fixed and reliable (I dunno about that) there could be an 'Automatic' refresh working like:
- read current Yahoo weather data and when it's updated.
- based on this and Yahoo schedule calculate next update.
- read again a minute (or five) after calculated time.
- if it's refreshed... great. wait next update.
- if it's still old... try again in 5 (or 15) minutes.
... or something similar.


Who's KorMi?  :D

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

.... 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)

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?
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...
