In my desktop app, I access Yahoo Weather using WOEID, and it has been working great for about 2 years. Late last week, I noticed I was no longer reporting the weather. Xojo has an example app included that also accesses Yahoo Weather and that example is no longer working either. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem? I don’t know whether the service is just down, or Yahoo has eliminated the service all together.
The current weather is important for my app, so I’m looking for a replacement. There is a link to the National Weather Service at:
But I don’t know how I could get this to work with Xojo.
There was an example app (Weather Retriever) posted by Michael Allen that accessed weather with a zip code. That worked really well until I realized it never updated the weather. I tried it again this morning and it reported a temperature of 57 degrees F. Its 38 degrees now where I am in Connecticut.
I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Yahoo Weather or knows a different way to get weather conditions of a particular area. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
