Live Weather

Post by babisxt » Tue Nov 03, 2009 12:24 pm

Dear Par,
Today in Volos, Greece is a very stormy day but yowindow live, displays a sunny day.
Yesterday was a sunny day and yowindow displayed rain.
The most accurate way to display live weather for Greece is:
http://www.metar.gr/index.php?option=co ... &Itemid=69
or: http://www.metar.gr/index.php?option=co ... &Itemid=76
I have yowindow on my website: http://www.babisxt.tk
and i receive many complains from my friends.
Can you do something about it?

Hi, babisxt!

I have found an error.
Now YoWindow uses a poor METAR station for Volos.
I will change the station shortly for the better one.
You will see the change in a couple of days.

But, bad news, this good station is 128 kilometers away from Volos.
Its code is LGTS and it is located in THESSALONIKI
So you may still experience incorrectly displayed weather, sorry.

We use METAR (international airport) weather data in YoWindow for current weather.
We don't have plans to use any other weather source for current weather except METAR.

Do you know where metar.gr takes weather data from?

Par please check this site : http://www.meteorologia.gr/
Here are all the weather stations for greece
(private stations and National's observatory stations)
Also near in Volos there is NEA ANCHIALOS airport with code LGBL

Please Par do something. It is a prestige matter.
Thanks again for your efforts.

Is there any way to translate the weather data from this banner

<object width="290" height="130"><param name="movie" value="http://www.wunderground.com/swf/pws_min ... ic&lang=GR" /><embed src="http://www.wunderground.com/swf/pws_min ... ic&lang=GR" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="290" height="130" /></object>

LGBL is a good station!
It is marked as obsolete in my stations list.
That is why it was not used.
I will add it shortly.
However, tomorrow is my birthday and I don't guarantee that I would have time for YoWindow.

Thank you.
We are working hard to make our wishes a reality.

I have updated METAR station.
From now on the current weather for Volos is taken from LGBL.
Is it ok?
