weather player and negative temps
« on: February 21, 2012, 12:59:04 PM »
In the weather player there is a bug when the forecast calls for temps below 0 degrees. Instead of showing the temp it shows NaN.
Everything works fine the rest of the time.

This happens when our weather provider is having issues, this should get resolved by it self, We have no control over what shows in the weather component since we just pull the data the is provided by the weather service.

It is a bug in the component. Any negative number displays "NaN". Several of us users in colder climates have lived with this issue for years and will continue to do so until fixed...or forever.

To my understanding, the weather provider is weather.gov, which has no issues displaying negative temps on their website. It really does seem to be a component bug. Admin, why deflect blame instead of acknowledging the problem and seeking to find a solution to a component that almost everybody uses?

Here is a few screen caps of negative weather working on the system .  But we will still look into it, if it can be fixed on our side.

Is that Weather scene available for download? I use "Weather 02" and the negative temps display as "NaN".
