Weather for only 4 of 6 days

Post by Bubba » Wed Mar 01, 2017 7:53 pm

YoWindow displays only 4 of 6 days of weather. The last 2 days are blank. This is for US cities. Non US cities seem to be reporting all 6 days of weather. The weather data seem to be a problem in different areas. Sometimes it will start working then it quits.

If the metar station does not relay this data to YoWindow...then these boxes remain empty...

That is why it is random...

London gives me the full range of days...
L.A. gives me 4...
N.Y.C. 6...

Unless you find a metar station close by that transmits this data...this will reoccur...

USA uses NWS as a default for the forecast.
Other countries are using Met Norway as the default for forecast.

NWS gives a forecast for fewer days than Met Norway.

Go to Location Properties.
You can change the forecast provider to Met Norway.
Some people want to use NWS.
I prefer Met Norway.

Try both to see which one you prefer.
