Yahoo weather widget for Shadow4 2 Years ago  
Here's an alternative weather widget which uses Yahoo as its source.

www.rainlendar.net/download/skins/YahooWeather.r2skin

The location is defined with the Yahoo's WOEID code which you can find out like this:
To find your WOEID, browse or search for your city from the Weather home page (weather.yahoo.com/). The WOEID is in the URL for the forecast page for that city. You can also get the WOEID by entering your zip code on the home page. For example, if you search for Los Angeles on the Weather home page, the forecast page for that city is weather.yahoo.com/united-states/california/los-angeles-2442047/. The WOEID is 2442047.

Since Google has closed down their weather API the current weather widget in the Shadow4 addon will be replaced with this in the future if there are no major problems .

Thanks, works nicely.

However, I get only a forecast for the next day. It's just today and tomorrow.

On the Yahoo webpage there is a forecast for the upcoming 4 days.

At least on the few feeds I checked there was a forecast only for 2 days. I don't know if that's the case with all locations but the skin won't be able to show more.

Rainy,

any way to change the temperature strings "Lo:/Hi:" to "Min.:/Max.:" ?

This way it would be correct in english AND in german. And probably in other languages aswell.

Anche io, che sono un appasionato di shadow4 ho problemi per vedere il meteo. Chiedo:www.rainlendar.net/download/skins/YahooWeather.r2skin
come va usato? Come si fa a collegare alla pelle gi installata? Lo potete spiegare anche a chi ignorante di questo argomento. Spiegato la procedura in ogni passaggio? So che una noia per chi lo sa gi fare ma se potete aiutare anche chi ignorante... Grazie per l'aiuto.
