Is there a current weather plugin or block that includes forecast information?

Squatty's weather block only has the current conditions.

What I'm looking for is something like the Weather module that was created for PHPWebsite. The demo is here.

This uses National Weather Service data.

I don't have an answer to your Q but the demo produces very nice output doesn't it. It would certainly compliment Squatty's WB.

To my knowledge no GL plugin/block exists that is capable of forecasting weather. The original weather block (based of an MSNBC API) included a 5 day forecast. The original block no longer works do to a change in the MSNBC API...which I have yet to figure out. Although, I have seen a new Nuke version that uses the uupdated MSNBC API so someone has figured it out. The block I created is based off the phpweather project. I chose phpweather because it had global appeal and is not subject to change (or at least if it does I can download the source :-). In my opinion, phpweather provides many added features over the example you posted. In addition, the NOAA only provides US weather locations. You're best bet is to either port the example you provided or the Nuke version to GL.

Opps...I'm a jack ass. I use NOAA for my weather too. Of course they have international locations. I'll take a look at the code from the post and see what I can come up with.

SOmething that you may want to look at is HamWeather (http://www.hamweather.com) A PHP version is due to be released in November, and would be easy enough to incorporate into GL... I plan on attempting this once it is released... I had a mod I wrote for MPN a while ago that included the perl version but it was buggy and a security hole Frown I will post a story on HamWeather(PHP) and GL integration once I get it done Smile -John
