forecast_provider=owm NOT working

Post by gradtamu » Sat Dec 21, 2013 6:54 pm

Hello,
it looks like yr.no updates weather every 6 hours. that is too much of a delay to show on website.
instead, i want to use OWM which is more accurate.

I added forecast_provider=owm to <param name="flashvars" value= ................> but without any change. it still fetched from yr.no

Am I doing anything wrong?
Please help.

Hi Chintan,

What is the location you are having a problem with?
Can you also supply us with a link to your website so we can check the code?

Thank you in advance.

Marty

actually, i think the forecast shows of OWM - however, the current temperature is too different.
I think current temperature is only pulled from yr.no

Is that correct?

I think current weather is related to METAR ICAO code? Is that true?
If yes, the I need to find the closest ICAO code for Trimbak, India.

current temperature that shows for Trimbak on OWM is around 12 C and the widget shows 22 C which is unacceptable.

Please reply to all above questions.

Yes, the current temperature is NOT provided by OWM.
Yes, ICAO codes and METAR.
I hope to support OWM current weather soon.
Stay tuned!
