    Hello darthtater,

    didn’t know wunderground is offline. Thank you for the information.

    I will check what I find in the free accu API and let you know what is possible.

    Thank you very much, tuxlog. It would be so nice to know %chance precipitation.

    Hello Darthtater,

    I checked it and there are some of the informations available. I can add the following data to the plugin


    I think these are the amounts of precipitation not the chance of precipitation.
    The propabilities are not in the interface the plugin uses.

    What do you think?

    Hi Tuxlog,

    My apologies, I was in a remotish area of Alaska for a couple of weeks and no internet during that time.

    I’m really needing the chance of precipitation. The API indicates it can return:

    Is that not correct?

    Hello Tater,

    sorry, for replying so late. I was offline for a few days.

    I checked the interface again and though it is described it is not in the data I get from accuweather. I guess it is only in the commercial interface.

    Hello Tater,

    would it be a help to add the three fields mentioned above or is it not enough for your needs?

    Hi tuxlog,

    No, I need the precipitation chance. My Pony Clubbers can look outside and see whether it’s actually raining at the time. They need to know how likely it is to rain / snow / storm a few hours to a day ahead of loading up a horse and traveling.

    I think some of the newer APIs like DarkSky have the PoP (probability of precipitation).

    If the dust ever settles maybe I’ll figure out how to use their API. But my PHP knowledge is pretty limited.

    Thanks for keeping in touch.
