To solve ,in the configuration .ini of Rainmeter must be changed "xoap" to "xml" in the link. For example:

htp://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/SPXX0050?cc=*&unit=m&dayf=6

for

htp://xml.weather.com/weather/local/SPXX0050?cc=*&unit=m&dayf=6

Work right now.

Good call, mine is working as well +1. No registration BS required. Hopefully we can fall back on this until the main skins convert over to accuweather.

no - if you read my post you would see that I was being sarcastic to Labad for you - your grammar is fine and so is your spelling - I was telling him it was a "typo"

The grammar remark was not intended for anyone specific, but if you troll around you will understand what I'm talking about.

Sorry you misunderstood stang, t41

nah i don't get mad.

but weather.com will if people start switching from the xoap feed to their xml feed without reading the licensing agreement! it's definitely not advised...

the weather.com to accuweather switch is intensely complicated. and since most weather skins are mods of other weather skins, we have to wait for the wizz kids at rainmeter.net to fix the base skins, so the rest of us can update our mods. it will take a while. in the meantime, just look out the window

Well that can weather.com do if we switch xoap to xml feeds? restrict their xml feeds and we are back in the same boat anyway right?

You will need an Icon set in your 10-foot HUD folder in ".png" format and to change the location to your current location after that refresh the skin and your set.

Weather Icon sets can be found here from Accuweather AccuWeather.com() Content For Your Site or you can use your own.

Heres a great fix for the weather dilema. A new weather skin has been made available at deviant art http://vonsmallhausen.deviantart.com...ther-129626178 and customize.org http://customize.org/rainmeter/skins/64365. So far its the most detailed and best looking skin with most customization and appearance. Works perfectly for me. Hope you guys like it.
