Luiso, please post season-map suggestion to the season-map forum and I will update it shortly.
Get YoWindow weather app for your phone or tablet.

Hi, Par.

Sorry, but I can't find the season-map forum, unless it is in Suggestions > Seasons. Please let me know if it's there where I should post it.

Thanks,
Luis

I have posted before and am still quite frustrated. I live in Norristown, PA (USA) and it has been snowing since 12 pm, but the weather says cloudy and so does the screensaver. The forecast for tonight shows snow and if you click on that, you see the snow, but when you go back to live, it's cloudy. Also, the screensaver has NEVER shown the weather outside. This is the main reason I wanted this. PLEASE HELP!!!

Hi, beve7.
I live in Norristown, PA (USA) and it has been snowing since 12 pm, but the weather says cloudy and so does the screensaver.
I'm no expert, but the reason might be the METAR station selected by default for Norristown, PA is not the best one. You can look for a better one here:

then go to your YT location properties and type the four letter code. Maybe that way the weather shown by YW will be more accurate.
if you click on that, you see the snow, but when you go back to live, it's cloudy
Basically when the temperature is over 41º F or so, you will see the naked landscape. When it goes below that, you'll have the snowy one. I recommend you to read the following thread (it made clear to me how the snow thing works and how difficult it is technically to make it right).

I hope it helped.

Cheers,
Luis

Hi, Beverly.

I'm glad it worked. ;)

Actually I checked Norristown in my YW a while ago and it was nice and freezing white, and judging from the forecast, it will stay like that for several days. Congratulations! (I guess...)

Cheers,
Luis

First please tell us your location so the season maps can be checked.
