VClouds Weather by VClouds VClouds Weather by VClouds

This is an old version. For a fully updated version of this skin check out VClouds Weather 2 and my new Glasses theme.


My first Rainmeter skin - a detailed vertical weather skin.
it includes 3 sets with 8 skins each, that shows weather conditions - from current weather to a full 9 day forecast from weather.com.

To change the weather to your city location right click the skin, click edit skin, scroll down to Location and read the instructions.

* The Today/Tonight line is taken from Shivaism's Large Clean Weather skin. shivaism.deviantart.com/art/La…

- Make sure to read the instructions ;)
- Also check this video that I found for easy installation instructions www.youtube.com/watch?v=SE_JZP…

Updates:
13.12.2011 - Temporary fix for the weather.com update issues. everything should work except for the last forecast day in the 9 days variant.
3.11.2013 - Fixed Tonight forecast not showing thanks to josey-wells.
20.1.2014 - Fixed Tonight forecast not showing up again. thanks to josey-wells.

Hello!

Might try v2 later, but for now, this v1.5 edition of VClouds is just the Rainmeter theme I've been looking for!

It was VERY easy to 'tweak' to fit my specific needs. It's a PERFECT replacement for the now-defunct Windows Weather Gadget...

It might be that the font was not installed properly. does the font of the skin looks like the one in the screenshot above?
Also please use vclouds weather 2 as it has a newer code. vclouds.deviantart.com/art/VCl…

I'm currently using Neon Space (which uses a modified version of your original script), Vclouds, and Vclouds 2.0 and although I've imput USCA0741 for my code, nothing happens after I refresh the skin. Am I missing something? www.weather.com gave me USCA0741 for my 8 digit code, but nothing happens after inputting this into all three versions of this skin.

What am I doing wrong?

VClouds Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2014
I tried your code using VClouds Weather 2 and it works fine. the original vclouds weather was not updated in a long time and it might be broken. I don't know what 'Neon Space' is using in its code but it might be broken too.

I see. Well, I downloaded VClouds Weather 2 and found the interface, input my code and clicked 'SET'. When I refreshed the skin, it still shows 0's and says:

Please Standby
Loading Weather...

It never changes from that. Even after refresh, nothing loads.

I've gone to weather.com again and got this in the URL instead:
www.weather.com/weather/today/…

I enter 96067:4:US as my code as well as 960674US and still nothing changes. I've tried your skin to no avail; your skin modified for Tech-A and Tech-B and neither of them loaded anything but 0's. There must be something that I'm missing other than to just enter LOCATION=USCA0741. Why would skin not load?

I don't know, your code works fine for me... sometimes weather.com have problems in some areas and refuse to load.
you can also try to restart your router and computer and see if that helps.

Allright. Figures "it's not you, it's me", lol. I rebooted my box, but not my router. I'll give that a go and hopefully get this sodden thing working. Your skin looks to good for me not to try everything I can to use it. Thanks anyway for your help at getting it to work. I'll let you know either way if it worked :P

This is a fabulous skin! Is there a string value in the data you're extracting from that indicates dew point? Given that I've made my own mods to your config file, I would add dew point to the current conditions section.

I like VClouds a lot, but obviously the essence data from weather.com is fatally wrong :(
I use it for a month now, and everytime and everday the data fails complete.
Like today it's sunny, no clouds by 18c, but weather.com (Vclouds) showing me it's 8c and cloudy...wich is NOT the reality, thus making this tool completely useless.
Is there any way, to use another weather service instead of weather.com?
(and yes, i use the right location code, since it does show it on top)

Cheers,
Dan

I've just found the wonders of rain meter and love your skin.  I'm having an issue with the Today/Tonight Line.  During the Day it will show Today and the temp, but whenever it's supposed to shift to tonight it still says Today and no temp appears only the  shows.  Any ideas on why this may be for me.  My location is  USGA0568.

Do you mean you cant move it?
Right click the rainmeter system tray icon and go to VClouds Weather\Settings\
make sure "Draggable" is checked and "Click Through" is not.
