I assure you that YoWindow depicts met.no data correctly.

You can check it yourself.
Here's the data for Madrid.
http://api.yr.no/weatherapi/locationfor ... -3.7;msl=0

Pay attention that the times are in GMT.
So you should add 2 hours to the time stamp.

I don't know why yr.no displays different data.
Probably because they cache the weather internally.
I'm sorry, but you do not need to msl=0, if not you force the temperature at the altitude of 0 m.
You can check with:
http://api.yr.no/weatherapi/locationfor ... 07;lon=7.2 is good for alitude 1200 m. I live at 1200 m.

http://api.yr.no/weatherapi/locationfor ... =7.2;msl=0 is false because msl = 0 forces the altitude of 0 m.

Weather forecast met.no uses API yr.no already incorporates altitude. You do not need to add the argument msl=0.
