Hi Cheryl,

Welcome to YoWindow.

Click on Location > Properties.
Please supply us with your

We cannot help you without that information.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Cheryl,

I just added your location to my Win7 YoWindow.
4148411; Boca Raton/Florida/USA uses METAR station icao code KPMP (Pompano Beach).

I have found all of METAR stations near Boca Raton.
KBCT - Boca Raton, Florida - this seems to be down 8 hours at night.
KPMP - Pompano Beach, Florida - this is what YoWindow is using.
KFXE - Fort Lauderdale, Florida
KPBI - Palm Beach, Florida
KFLL - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Click on Location > Properties.
Change the METAR station icao code to one of the above.

KLEE is Leesburg, Florida and does not look like it is close to you at all.

Let us know which one works the best for you.

Marty

Hi Cheryl,

I just looked at my Boca Raton.
KPMP - Pompano Beach, Florida is showing a thunderstorm.
