The weather is not working correctly again. It shows it to be 15 degrees cooler than it is. I tried the same location name that uses METAR code instead of Weather.com code and it was off by 6 degrees. Another one of the locations near me doesn't work at all, dock icon says N/A.

The 3 day hi/low forecast when hovering over the dock icon seems to be correct.

Are you already running the beta of v22.4? If not, that is the first thing you should do.

Also, last time I gave you some instructions on how to create a log file. Mind doing that and posting it here?

Yes I'm running the beta.

Here's the weather.log:

That says temps at Montgomery Field, California, are 78F, and that info was retrieved on 2022-04-06 at 12:30 (local time, I assume).

If that temp is wrong then it is the responsibility of the MSN/Foreca feed.

The 3 day forecast is the one using the MSN feed. That seems to be correct. The dock icon weather is the one that's incorrect.

Both the forecast AND the current weather conditions are using the MSN feed. MSN in turn is getting this information from Foreca.

By "dock icon weather" I assume you mean current weather conditions, which, again, are retrieved from the same block of data as the forecast.

If you mean only the icon, it should display skycode="32", which means the clear Sun or Moon icon (depending on the time there) and this also matches the 'Sunny' text in the skytext field of the MSN data block.

If you mean the temperature seems to be wrong, as I said that block of data claims that at 12:30 the temperature was 78F.

All I can say is the current temperature was wrong. It was showing 61F when it was supposedly 15 degrees hotter. Even now it looks off. It shows 60F when weather.com says it's 67F, wunderground says 68F, NOAA says 66F. MSN says 73F but on its map it shows my location and says 69F. So something's not right.

Weather's been stuck at 61F all day again. Nobody else has had any problems with the weather icon?

I created a new weather.log. Maybe there's some new info:

What is this? You can't just go and change the weather feed source URLs (Weather Module Settings -> Advanced) without knowing what you are doing or you have been instructed to do so, as it says at the top of that dialog. This **obviously** results in

***
Error Decoding METAR Data

as the URL you provided ('http://www.aviationweather.gov/metar/data?ids=KSEE&format=raw') is NOT the correct METAR source URL (https://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/observa ... /stations/%1.TXT)

Worse when you don't even say you have done this.

Furthermore, posting a weather log without posting a screenshot of the weather icon AFTER retrieving that same weather data is meaningless to me. You claim temperatures have been stuck at 61F all day but I can *assure you* the icon from the log you posted would actually show 73F.

I didn't go into Advanced settings. I never changed anything. The only thing I changed were the city locations.

One of the city locations showed 73F, which was also wrong. The one I typically use shows 61F.

There must be something wrong with the dock icon and settings.

Ok, please right click on the Weather module icon and select 'Weather Monitor Settings'. In the Weather Module Settings dialog click on the Advanced button.

Please take a screenshot of that dialog with all the fields visible and post it here.

Once you've done that click the Default button and see if the content of the fields change. This is what should be visible in the METAR Source URL field:

https://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/observations/metar/stations/%1.TXT

If that is not it and it does not change to that when you click on the Default button, then you must be running an older version of the Winstep application or something. Check the version number in the top right corner of the About tab of Preferences again.

It seems to work correctly now if I use the locations that have the METAR code in the weather module settings. If I pick the locations that only use the weather.com codes it shows 61F or N/A.

I'll have to look at it tomorrow during the day to see if it's accurate.

This thread peaked my interest yesterday. So in the evening, I twisted the missus' arm to install Xtreme on her remaining Win 10 partition (I've pretty much weaned her onto Ubuntu and that W10 is due to be removed as soon as I can get round to it), with the beta as well, and restore my last backups and my themes.

And guess what the Weather mod came up with!? Connection failed - no data. That was for the MSN feed, according to the Weather Monitor Settings. Didn't change anything, as MSN feed was the only thing available here before. Tried several more times at intervals, same results. Something spooky going on there, certainly. Perhaps MSN feed dead?

Temporarily, it would seem. Just had a peek at 'her indoors'' desktop and it seems all's back to MSN's hopelessly inaccurate usual (can't bring myself to say normal as that seems inappropriate in the context of my location!). Weird.

OK, now to get her to uninstall Xtreme again and wipe all traces of it. Means half an hour's instructions later. :(

Yeah, guess what, woke up to my weather module showing N/A too. Forcing a connection via the Weather Settings panel resulted in the current conditions for 20/06 being returned (today is the 22nd) and a single day of forecast (23rd).

Looks like there is something wrong with the MSN weather feed as of right now. Let's hope it's temporary, as this is the last available feed for the time being, besides METAR for current conditions only.
