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

RE: Weather Forecast - Yahoo service retired
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.
