Title: Weather information from Weather.com
Post by: uk_skinner on February 15, 2005, 07:47:30 AM
First, I would like to thank eemond who opened my eyes to the PHP script.  He was also kindly enough to share with me his script.  Without his help, these PHP scripts could not be here.  Also I would like to express my gratitude to users to help me testing them, broesel, thc, ZapMe1, Geezer, Timmy, Wichtel and also Jim for hosting this forum.

There are 3 PHP scripts and almost identical.  The German and French ones pull the information from their weather.com (de.weather and fr.weather).  Both of them have been passed to the their own sites and will be testing there.  The one I posted here will pull all the information from weather.com.  In other words, if you can find the information from this site then you can generate the city.txt

This was considered as public testing and was trying to find out any error in it.  Once it is stable, its final resident site will be discussed.

Before go to the details, just a general warning:  Please back up your PPC before doing any thing.  

The link is: http://72.9.224.178/~tpfansc/rss/weather.php?Citycode=GMXX0039&SFDay=1&Language=GM

I would suggest you copy/paste this link into your browser and test it.  Here are the parameters:

Citycode: It is required.  One of error checking mechanism was in the script.  If you put an invalid Citycode, it will generate an “Error” city.txt.  No information will be in there and “Error!!!” will be in the this.swConText.  In that way, you will see “Error” in the TP.

SFDay:  Optional.  Start Forecast Day (SFDay) allow you to set the first day of the 5-day forecast.  If you don’t specify it, the default value is “0” (today).  If you set “SFDay=1” then your 5-day forecast will start at tomorrow.

Language:  Optional.  This will allow you translate the forecast text of current condition into either German (GM), French (FR) or Dutch (NL).  If other language is desired, please post the forecasttext.txt here and I can try to put them in.  Due to the different forecast format used in MSNBC and weather.com, sometimes the PHP could not find the right matched word.  It will take some times to make it perfect.

To let this new generate city.txt can be used in TP, we need to use radar.exe to download it.  I guess all the talent skinner here will work out a way to do it.  Here are some trick issues need to be lay out first.

1)   At this point, there are time file also are generated when TP update the weather and RSS.  There are two numbers in the file.  I would like to ask some help to figure out what these two numbers are. They are important because this file is where TP get latest update time from.  Before figure out a way to generate this time file by ourselves, we still need TP to run the update from MSNBC.  It means twice downloading.
2)   As mentioned above, the MSNBC updating is still needed to generate the time file, a delay updating from weather.com is necessary.  I have a TpExeDelay.exe to do this job.  It will launch programs from a list after TP finishing its own updating.  If you have other program on the list, it is necessary to put radar.exe run first since it will download the city.txt.

I was hoping later we can have these process more simple and effectively.  But at the early stage of this development, a little bit patience is required.

Thanks again one more time to your efforts :)

I looked into my cityx.txt.time already several times but didn't figure out
for now, what format is used. As we only get the value "updatetime" in
TodayPlus, I think it is Date and Time in whatever format.

The values in my city1.txt.time - city3.txt.time are:

city1:
29692833
1259410432

city2:
29692833
1269410432

city3:
29692833
1279410432

As you can see, only one value was changing, when updating the three
files, so I assume, that is time-related. In the skin it shows for updatetime:
21:59 (means 9:59 pm)

The format of the first numeric string in the files is identical with the
string in some values of the registry (hkcu\software\SRSSoft\TodayPlus\uptime)

f.ex.
batteryTimeUiHigh : 29692951
oldUiBatteryHigh   : 29692951
oldUiSoftresetHigh : 29692951
softresetTimeUiHigh: 29691400

So maybe that string could be date-related in my opinion.
Maybe anybody can take a look at his files and see, if that can be fixed.

Thanks for your good words....:oops:

I forgot to mention one feature in the script.

The 5-day forecast is just like the one in MSNBC one if the day forecast is available from the weather.com.  However, it becomes invalid after 2:00PM.  At this moment, I let script to take the next hourly forecast as day forecast (Temp, Forecast icon and prec.).  In other words, if you use the script to download the city.txt at 4:30PM, the script will give you the 5:00PM forecast as day forecast.  This goes on until the day forecast becomes available again.  If you wish to start tomorrow as the 1st day of the 5-day forecast, just use SFDay=1.

UK,

Nice work. Thanks for the kudos.

Curious what your weather feed is. I compared this (http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/rss/forecast_yahoo_txt.php?Citycode=GMXX0039&Language=GM) and found the 5 day forecast to be almost identical (the only thing that differed was the AM an PM Codes).

eemond

Ed:


I have emailed all my scripts to you.
All the weather information are form weather.com. The 5-day forecast is from:http://www.weather.com/activities/other/other/weather/tenday.html?locid=20850

It does make sense that 5-day forecast should be identical since Yahoo also use weather.com as source.

A simple weather skin using the city.txt from weather.com and imageviewer for radar image.  Does it look familiar?

Uk_skinner,

I thank you, broesel, thc, ZapMe1, Geezer, Wichtel and Jim for all the progress that's made last month. (Who did I forget?!?) It's really amazing that those things are possible!

About a year ago everybody thought the beautiful program called TodayPlus would dy. But happily all the efforts of SRS and all the skinners all over the world it did NOT dy!!!

Thank you all, my fellow skinners!!! It's nice work (sorry: hobby) to do, as one of you said this week.

Uk_skinner, I had some terrible busy days at work, but I've tested some things for you, and this weekend I'll PM you again. Thanks for your nice work!

Uk_skinner,

I’ve noticed some things by critical looking at my PPC screen, my city.txt files and the weather.com weather report website.

1)  I’m 99% sure that the TodayPlus-pic (Rain/Wind)  isn’t the right picture. The text is right, everytime, saying something like 'Rain' or 'Drizzle' or 'Light Rain'. That’s OK in comparision with the website. But icon 11 (Rain/Wind) and icon 13 (Wind) are not the good pictures for the right, mentioned text.

2)  I’m 55% sure that if there’s “PM” in the DAY-text, that the NIGHT-text for that day remains empty.

3)  I think there are some wrong translations in Dutch, so I attach two new translations:
•  UK-NL Forecast txt.doc (http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/files/timmy/UK-NL_Forecasttxt.zip)
•  Weather Icons & Text.doc (http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/files/timmy/Weather_Icons&Text.zip)

4)  The translation from Mph to km is working perfect.

5)  The ‘sky-translation’ (this.swConTekst in the city.txt file) is also working perfect.

I hope, this report helps you a little bit.

Timmy
______________________________________________
@ALL: In the attached UK-NL forecasttext.doc I’ve added some missing English textlines, too. You can easily transform this .doc file to the weatherforecast.txt file (used by TodayPlus) by deleting the Duch column and change the table ==> text.
I thought is was ‘clever’ to give the missing textlines the number of that line. For me, it was easier in the past to change those lines when a new textline was found by me or someone else.

Most of time, I believe it was PHP did not find the matched words of forecast in the list.  It could be the space issue.  Sometimes the forecast text from weather.com gets some extra space.  If you find that, please let me the words and I can correct them.

Uk_skinner,

Yes, those are my thoughts. But first we must be more sure about it. Changing those things are very radical, cause the TodayPlus users are using the pics in this order for several years. So we must be complete sure, before we change thise order! We must at least know what our weatherman Broesel thinks!!

That's OK, I'll write down the exact words of the weathersite if there are some conflicts.

Thanks Timmy, that you want my opinion. Indeed I have compared some
Weather-Icons-Sets and Weather-Id-Lists. I'm now sure that the one
that was provided in the old TodayPlus-Forum is not 100% correct.
I found a list in another forum (can't remember where) and compared it
with the weather.com-icons and many others. Result: this list is absolutely
exact with the weather.com and the yahoo.com icons. I would like to
attach a word-document with this list and som comparition with other
iconsets, but my upload-quota runs out of space. So if I find another way
to put it up, I will do.

Thanks to uk_skinner, who uploaded the file for me, here is the download-file:

http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/files/uk_skinner/WID_Compare.zip

As talking from the icons 11 and 13:

This list says

11 Rain (no wind) and
13 Light Snow

so I think Rain/Wind and Wind are not the right icons.

Uk_skinner,

Now we know that the old TodayPlus numbering isn't correct no longuer, I don't want to use that oldfashioned numbering no longuer, too.

On my To-Do-List for the coming weeks:
• rearange my own weather-pics (Timmy-01, Timmy-02, Timmy-03 and Timmy-04) and make new icons for the missing ones;
• doing the same thing for some icon-series I like;
• doing the same thing for some series other members like.

Last week I've found to missing translations in the sky translation:
• "Rain and Snow"   Dutch translation: "Regen en sneeuw"
• "Showers in the Vicinity"  Dutch translation:  "Plaatselijk een bui"

Can you add them?

Thanks!

Timmy:

  There is no "Rain and Snow" in English forecasttext.txt, but there is "Rain/Snow".  I did add "Rain / Snow" in it.   Are you sure you saw "Rain and Snow" ?

 Again there is no "Showers in the Vicinity" in the English one and we need to assign the code.  Any suggestion?

Uk_skinner,

Indeed, this was the text that was displayed in TodayPlus for about three or four times last week. Today I have this text one time:
(http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/files/timmy/display_1.jpg)

Just to be sure: you are  using this (http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/files/timmy/UK-NLForecasttxt.zip) forecasttext list, isn't it? This list is updated with all the new-found text that was published by Joelw and others last year.

In this forecastlist some lines aren't filled with text. Maybe we have two numbers/lines filled now. But what lines???? I realy don't know how or where to find them. Maybe other members know the answer?!?

BTW: Do you know why the windspeed (see screenshot) remains empty?

Uk_skinner,

This is strange!!! AL my cities are OK, except not Dublin this time. In the Registry I saw Dublin has windsd '63', so the translation to beaufort should give an '8'.

Uk_skinner,

Strange things are happening...

I just redownloaded the weatherforecast. Now Dublin has 47 (Km/h) and in the Registry was 47 for windsd, too. That's OK. On my PPC was the right translation 6, too.

But here it comes...  I changed manualy the windsd to 63 in registry. And there didn't come an '8' on my PPC screen!!! That part of the screen remains empty again! How is THAT possible?!?!?!?!?

Uk_skinner,

This question made me think deeper... And by thinking deeper, I reconstructed one fault I made:

I use your rss-feed, that translated Mph into Km/h. And at the same time I remains using your TpRegistryWind.exe, that also translates to Km/h. So the windspeed was translated one time too much... First conclusion: I don't need TpRegistryWind.exe no more...

  Wait!!!!

1)  If you don't use TpRegistryWind.exe, how can you write wind direction and wind speed in to registry?

2)  Which TpRegistryWind.exe you use?  And when you download the city.txt using weather.php, you have options to get mile or km.  If you want to get km just use "Language=NL" otherwise the default is "mile".  


3)  Did you have converting codes in the skin?

Timmy: If you want to use the calculation-codes for Beaufort, you have
to use the TpRegistryWindEurope.exe, because if you do not do that,
you will not get the km/h-value in a variable.

If you are using the TpRegistryWindEurope.exe, you may not use
the code for translation in the php-script, because else you do the
km/h-calculation twice. So do not use &language=....

1)  If you don't use TpRegistryWind.exe, how can you write wind direction and wind speed in to registry?

2)  Which TpRegistryWind.exe you use?  And when you download the city.txt using weather.php, you have options to get mile or km.  If you want to get km just use "Language=NL" otherwise the default is "mile".  


3)  Did you have converting codes in the skin?

Uk_skinner,

Answer 1)   I have your programs TpRegistryWind.exe (for windspeed??)and TpRegistryWindDir.exe (for winddirection??). Winddirection is in use to get the winddirection-var. But a windspeed-var is not needed, as the windspeed is in the city1.txt? Or am I thinking wrong now????

Answer 2)   I use the ... ehhh... what am I using... I think one of the .exe's I tested for you... don't know which... I'll have to re-download it?

I use your weather.php  in combination with "Language=NL" to get km and to get the sky.

Answer 3) I use one convertingcode: to translate KM/h into 'Beaufort'.

I hope my answers brings us closer to the solution.

Timmy

Timmy: If you want to use the calculation-codes for Beaufort, you have
to use the TpRegistryWindEurope.exe, because if you do not do that,
you will not get the km/h-value in a variable.

If you are using the TpRegistryWindEurope.exe, you may not use
the code for translation in the php-script, because else you do the
km/h-calculation twice. So do not use &language=....

Regards Broesel


Broesel,

I'm in toubles now... Not using use "Language=NL" made me miss the Dutch translation for the sky..

I don't see a solution, and hope you & uk_skinner know what I must do.

The windspeed is in the city1.txt, but you cannot use this as a var !!
You only can display it with the today,windspeed ... command.

As I wrote before, if you use the translation, you won't get the right values
in the registry as the php-script already calculates the windspeed in km/h
into the cityx.txt.

Quote
Answer 3) I use one convertingcode: to translate KM/h into 'Beaufort'.


Then you need to have the values of windspeed in the registry !!!!!
And you have to translate the Weathertext with the SkyTranslate.exe
and may not use &Language=NL

Yes, you still need the wind speed into registry key because you need to assign a var to convert to "Beaufort".  The wind speed information is in the city.txt but TP code only can "display" it not to assign it to a var.

You know what?  I have the same problem.  The only thing I did was go back the the source code I have in my PC and look the codes.  The one I have told me there is only writing no conversion in "TpRegistryWind.exe".  However, there is a conversion and writing in "TpRegistryWindEurope.exe"


Quote

I use your weather.php in combination with "Language=NL" to get km and to get the sky.


So if you did that and you should use "TpRegistryWind.exe", then the conversion will be done by PHP.

Hopefully, this makes clear..

Yes, I think that will be the solution, because you get the values in the
registry and they won't be converted twice.

But there is still the problem, that you didn't get the right Beaufort-Value
in the skin ?

@Uk_skinner and @Broesel,

Thank you both for all the information you gave me!

I'm gonna work it out and test the things. But as I'm a very slow skinner when I have to do things like this, it can cost some time to give you the answer that our efforts were succesfull or not.

When I'm finished, I let you know how things are!

See you!

There's no Ciy1HR.txt in the buffer. These textlines were not able to do their job now

Your city1.text is that one, that was downloaded from msnbc.com by

Uk_skinner,

I could download again everything that was to be downloaded. So: no problems here!

Do you know what I think? As Broesel said, I noticed that weather.com was veeeeeeeeery slow today. And then it's too slow for your PHP!! Weateer.com did do its work, but your PHP didn't want to wait so long. That's what my simple thoughts are...

My suggestion: if Weather.com is too slow, your PHP goes to another URL. How??? I realy don't know...

@Uk_skinner and @Broesel,

First of all the reason why the higher Beaufort numbers weren't given on my PCC. As you both already thought, there was a little meany 'blank' in the half of the 'if-else' range... In deleted that meany 'blank' with a heavy click on the delete-button... Now all the Beauforts is OK. Thank you guys for your help!!!

While testing I noticed again some strange things:
Code: [Select]
Windspeed
weathercom Rotterdam gives 8 Mph   -->  c1windsd  21
weathercom Arnhem gives    3 Mph   -->  c2windsd   8
weathercom Dublin gives   15 Mph   -->  c3windsd  39
weathercom Grenoble gives  3 Mph   -->  c4windsd   8
weathercom Hannover gives  7 Mph   -->  c5windsd  18

What does the windspeedvars mean? They are no Mph and they are no Km/h. But what then?!? I think there copuld possibly a conversion mistake?!?

Some explanation:
7,6 - 12,1 Mph   =   3,4 - 5,4 M/sec   =   6 - 11 Km/h   =   3 Beaufort

Looks to me like double conversion !!!

3 mph = ~ 4,8 kmh --> 4,8 kmh converted once more : 7.72 = ~ 8 ?????

Be sure, you use the exe, that does no conversion from the already converted cityx.txt

Well, the thing with the exe was really complicated, wasn't it   :?
Even the sid and all those things you did have to download first, no
things like zipcode or ac-id .....
I think, one of the problem is, that you only get a 3-day-forecast with
text, and in the trend only the icons. And there are much various
html-pages, where you have to get possible usable data from  :roll:
Don't know, if that is really good to take for cityx.txt.
Maybe use it as a rss-feed, if you can get all things, that are usefull
in the right order.

Uk_skinner,

I cleared the buffer and re-downloaded the forecast. And guess: now its available in the var as number 998...  The wind speed in city4.txt is '0', too. (I think it's depending on the time, what information you get. The information can change very quick, as we have seen here.)

Note:
998 is Calm
999 is Var

You gave those numbers to the winddirections, so you haven't to change things!

I've made a mistake in my earlier post: I also ment Saterday night.
The connections with weather.com are ok here, too. And yes, I saw the same text, you wrote in your post. It's this particular text that made an empty place in the city2.txt ot the buffer.

Because it is not in the script and then we can't get a code for the forecasttext.

You should provide such textes that not are found to uk_skinner with the

Uk_skinner,

Your a good investigator!

I think it's a good site for the Dutch weatherinformation. All information is given, except one thing: I couldn't find a 48 hours waetherforecast. It that right???

At least I found another nice picture for my Radar.exe and EZdownload...

  Looks like this can be alternative source for city.txt.  The only thing I don't see is the 5 day precipitation forecast.  

 Yes, you were right.  I did not see 24 or 48 hourly forecast here.

 I am not so sure about image downloading.  They looks complicated to me...

Edit:  I took it back...Looks like it is possible.....

Checked, looks like a nice weathersite , 5-Days forecast, but the icons
are not numbered like at msnbc or weather.com, no precipitation, but
windforecast for the next 5 days. No 24 hour and no tenday-forecast.

I'm starting to love weather.com  :lol:

Sorry, don't have a code for that too .... going to msnbc.com doesnt't help
because you won't get a forecastcode for the actual weather, that only works

In fact, not much time.  I copied your stuff into excel and remove the "English" one, add some columns and put some characters.  Becuase there is certain format in the PHP, so I need put some extra characters before and after the information.  Then just copy/paste in there.  

I just did it in this morning, without my coffee yet, probably take 10 minutes.  If I have coffee, probably can be done in 5 minutes. :roll:

Dublin says for saterday night: "Light Rain / Wind", but I think these words are missing in your PHP-rss. Can you, please, add them?

Thanks!
Timmy

Uk_skinner,

Just to keep you moving... :wink:

The 'now' weather report for Grenoble is missing "Showers in the Vicinity". Is this missing in your PHP-rss?

EDIT 1: Some hours later the same words are missing for the "Now" weatherreport of Rotterdam. This text was to be read in weather.com

EDIT 2: A half day later I'm missing "Rain Early" for saterday night (Hannover). This text was to be read in weather.com.

EDIT 3: Missing for Fridaynight in Grenoble: "T-Storms Early". This text was to be read in weather.com.

EDIT: In the 'NOW' screen I saw an untranslated text: "Heavy T-Storm".

Thanks!

Uk_skinner,

Several hours in the beginning of this morning, (that are the hours you are supposed to sleep...)   http://72.9.224.178/~tpfansc didn't work. But I did forget to test the weather.com URL...  Sorry!  Maybe the problems were on that URL?!?

NOTE: At this time (22:00 PM UTC) everything is OK again.

Uk_skinner,

The 'now' weather report for Arnhem is missing "Showers in the Vicinity". It's an empty place on the PPC. Is this missing in your PHP-rss?

"Showers in the Vicinity" is in the scripts, but there is no Dutch for it.:?:   What are the right "words"?

Uk_skinner,

The Dutch translation is "Plaatselijke bui".

Thanks for your help!

One IP from Spain has been acquiring weather.php hundreds times a day.  Looks to me it was set up automatically.  I have blocked this particular IP.  If you know anything about it, please send a PM to me.  Usually, I don't mind users using it but if it is abnormal like this.  I would like to be informed.
