New b225: <description> to report weather description text

Post by par » Fri Jan 08, 2010 8:58 pm

Please provide weather description text with <description> tag.
Sorry, I have forgotten to include it in the format initially.

Example:
<sky>
<icon id="21" format="wd"/>
<description value="Heavy Rain">
</sky>

Jim, please update Weather Display script with <description>.
Also take a look at my new remarks on <icon> and <description> tags in "YoWindow XML format" post.
Get YoWindow weather app for your phone or tablet.

Pasha,

Those are very nice changes and the script is updated at http://jcweather.us/yowindow-xml.php?sce=view. It seems to be working great in my YoWindow. I have to work on getting my icon to work better, especially at night. I have my WD configured to use METAR cloud conditions at night but it isn't doing that correctly all the time.

Things are simpler now. It occurs to me that you may find the format of WD's clientraw files useful and thanks to Kevin Reed's clientraw parser, you can see the format and my station data live at http://www.tnetweather.com/wd-parser.ph ... mit=Submit. You can put any WD powered site in there and see their current data.

- Jim
