Thanks for your help. I did paste the key directly into the API field in Kodi. That added an extra space. The error is gone now.

This is all new for me so I'm likely stating the obvious for 99.9% of the reader, but I noticed the information displayed varies greatly with the skin.
I really like the "Amber" skin but after I got weather working it didn't show anything extra. On the contrary it shows 7 instead of 8 days forecast. The eighth day is just blank.

The skin you used in the first post of this thread is "Confluence"?
I switched to that skin and can get the forecasts as shown in the first 4 pictures.
But I can't find any of the weather maps.
Am I overlooking a setting?

the maps functionality is no longer present in the addon.
the openweathermap servers providing the maps are unreachable 99.9% of the time.
it's been a problem for a long time and only gotten from bad to worse.

i've updated the first post to reflect this.

Thanks for the bad news! :-)

Looks like Wunderground has similar functionality. Unfortunately that means I have to abandon beautiful Amber... Rofl

wunderground indeed. not sure why you think it wouldn't work with amber?
both weather addons provide similar information, it shouldn't matter to a skin at all which one you use.

In Amber I see no maps, no forecasts for 36 hours, weekends.
