PS, after another hour of research, I did find out a sort of way to make it work, but it's not something that I would expect a lay person to figure out easily.
1) I deduced from the original code (weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:UKXX0092%26weadegreetype=C
) that the location information was included in the UKXX0092
part. All else is unchanged (unless you want to convert from Centigrade to Fahrenheit in which case obviously you change that final C to an F.)
2) The reason I figured this out was that I found another entry that showed NYC as the same code (weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:USNY0996%26weadegreetype=F
) Well that got me New York code of USNY0996
and that works.
3) Having sort of worked out how the code for the URL worked, I input that code and then tried changing the USNY
part to USOH
(for US Ohio) and 0001
to see what that city would be. It worked, and was something like Aberdeen Ohio, so I tried a higher number, and got higher in the alphabet. With that bit of intelligence, I worked my way back and forth until I found Dayton at USOH0245
. Final Solution:
(added note: USOH0246 also works, the difference being whether you want Cox international Airport (USOH0245) listings or Wright Patterson Airforce Base (USOH0246) It just depends on where you are in Dayton as to which would be best.)
This was a very time consuming method, but none of the other methods I had read about seemed to be working for me. Each time, when the instructions said the mysterious code would be revealed, I ended up either redirected to something else, or got a completely different feed url that did not work.
Anyway, while my problem is solved just as that is of the OP, I hope someone can provide some insight into a better solution than this.
