Weather Forecast broken? - Anam Cara - 11-23-2015 03:02 AM

I just realised I get a new temperature every time I reload the weather for my location. Did Yahoo perhaps change the RSS format?

I'm at this location: https://weather.yahoo.com/sweden/gavleborg/gavle-890545/ and I get a new value between -4 and +2 C every time I reload the weather, which does not happen on their web page (link above).

Confirmed. The RSS format is not changed but yahoo returns old data for unknown reason.

Yahoo! Weather has been having issues for a while now.

I use Kodi which is a media server and it has weather add ons and Yahoo! weather is also broken in Kodi.

Here are links where they are talking about the Yahoo Weather issues.

I guess until Yahoo fixes it there is nothing we can do Sad

Yahoo is having lots of issues not only with the weather (for desktop, that is, on Android works ok) but also with their email system and with the whole Eurosport boogey. They stopped being reliable as a whole years ago. My two cents are on switching to a different weather service.

Looks like Yahoo solved the problem. I see the valid forecasts now.

It seems to be kaput again. I have not received any weather updates since Thursday, and now it's Sunday. I even updated the city number from their website, no luck. Any solution?

Thanks, this did it. And I have even 9 days of forecast now! Wow!
On a side note, could it be that the plugin version still stood at 6.1 on Sunday?

Big Grin I was pretty sure I had checked the version. This explains it. Thanks a lot!
