Weather.MetOffice is a Weather addon that fetches weather information for thousands of locations accross the UK. It takes its data from the Met Office's "DataPoint" API. (http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/datapoint)
Site-specific observation for one of approx. 140 locations across the UK. Wind direction, Wind speed, Wind gust, Screen temperature, Weather Type, Visibility, Pressure.
5 Day Forecast
A quality controlled datafeed of site specific, daily, 5-day forecasts for approximately 5,000 locations around the UK.
3 Hour Forecast
Site specific forecasts for over 5,000 sites in the UK, including airports, major landmarks and beaches.
Forecast weather data. In 3 hourly intervals out to 5 days.
Regional Text Forecast
Text forecasts are provided for the each of the nations of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland along with six regional forecasts for Scotland and eight regions of England.
Map layer images are provided with three hourly intervals from T+0 to T+36. These are updated every 6 hours.
Observation (Radar) Maps
Layer images are updated every 15 minutes with a 15 minute delay due to processing times.
Your location can be automatically determined using GeoIP services. Under settings you can choose a prefered GeoIP service provider. Then when choosing your location results will be ordered by estimated distance.
Fetch on Request.
To keep response times to a minimum, data is only fetched for the particular page when you, the user, request it. Once it's fetched it's kept cached within XBMC properties and is only refreshed according to the data set's update interval.
Use Confluence from repository.powlo! [Gotham]
or repository.powlo [Frodo]
To get 3 day forecast, text forecast, forecast maps and observation maps you'll need to install my modded version of Confluence. If you don't use the modded version of Confluence you'll only get "out of the box" features; namely observation and 5 day forecast.
This is a "weather addon friendly" fork (and subtree) of the main Confluence skin. The only difference is how weather addons are managed, all other skin features are unchanged.
Only one Location can be selected. That is, there is no "Location 1", "Location 2", "Location 3" etc. This concept cannot (easily) be applied to Met Office weather, so I've removed it.
Instead there are three location settings, Observation, Forecast and Region.
