Now it returns current weather info for today (June 22) taken at 6PM (6:45 PM here now), which is correct - but all forecast slots show as N/A, since the MSN feed is now returning forecasts from the 17th to the 21st (i.e. in the past).

Something is rotten in the Kingdom of Denmark. :D

Obviously this has nothing to do with the weather module itself.

Yes my forecasts all show N/A also. Current weather looks like it's correct.

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.

A while ago had the Missus boot up Windows again and yep, Weather Module showing nought. Then got her to get the WM Settings up, all blank apart from last checked time. 'Get Weather' got a result, but taken 22/06/22 14.00! (3 day forecast also showed up on closing Settings.)

MSN is definitely f***ed, and it's certainly nothing to do with the Weather Module itself.
Not that, with MSN feed, it's really useful here, but then again that may at least in part also be down to my location being too far from any data collection point.

Going to give instructions for uninstalling Xtreme when I'm done here. Yawn!

I can see the full 5 day forecast now. Usually it only shows 3 days. But I question the accuracy of the temps. Next Tuesday shows 98F but every other weather site shows 20-25 degrees cooler. Even MSN's website is different, says 84F. If forecast is using MSN feed I assume they would be the same.

Oh well I care more about the current weather than the forecast.

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

The MSN/Foreca feed seems to be having some issues lately - some issues are localized others seem to be global.

Let's hope it's a temporary thing.

Hi Jorge, how ironic. I noticed in this thread about the weather being incorrect which ties in with time, the posted times of the OP, you, and others are all over the place. As much as 2 days off!

On top of that, some of the posts show that they were after a post that was clearly made prior. :?

Gotta explain this!
