Title: Where can I load a nice weather template forecast from?
Post by: Jdejean on March 01, 2014, 07:09:07 AM
Hi everyone, I´m a bit desperate about this, maybe you can help me out.

Where do you guys load your weather screen from? Is there any decent for free? I tried to make my own with as3 yahoo api, but I´m running out of time, this project needs to be closed by monday and so far I´ve got not much.

I need a weather forecast 3 or 5 days for buenos Aires, Argentina, I´ve seen some paid ones, but this project is far from being able to afford it...

I´d be very gratefull if someone could give me some pointers, files, whatever... Thank you!

We're a little past your deadline, but I was able to grab the weather from forecast.io for all of our locations around the world.

I built my own PHP-based display script, but they also have a pretty nice embed widget that might work (as long as horizontal works for you.....it didn't for me):   blog.forecast.io/forecast-embeds/
