Thank you for information. I've requested credentials for Weather API. When I get answer, I'll fix Weather Monitor plugin.

Thanks Yuri. Glad to hear you are on it.

Weather Forecast is back

Thanks for the quick fix, Yuri! The plugin is working again now, but unfortunately it calculates the pressure incorrectly. I think it considers the input is in millibars, while its data XML (stored in %AppData%) shows the input is in inches of mercury:
Code:
<yweather:units distance="mile" pressure="inchHg" speed="m/h" temperature="F"/>
Other units seem to be OK.

Also, it would be nice to update timezones.xml file which is from 2011. It's wrong for Russia at least, where e.g. MSD/MSK should be "+0300", otherwise the weather update time displayed in the tooltip has a one-hour shift.

There is another minor glitch with it: when a 24-hour time format is used, everything is displayed correctly except the "12:MM AM" times from <lastBuildDate> XML field, which are shown as "12:MM" and not the "00:MM". Really noticed it only while composing this bug report, so I can't say yet if there is a similar problem with "12:MM PM" times.

BTW, concerning that update time shown in the tooltip - maybe it's worth to display the real weather update time stored in the <pubDate> XML field instead of the time of a last data request? I think it'd make much more sense from a user's point of view.
