Weather Blue NWS advforcast2.php update **5/30/2018**
« on: May 30, 2018, 08:39:40 PM »
Another update to Weather Blue NWS forecast script.


1. Make sure you save a copy of your original advance2.php file.

2. Download advforecast2.txt. Once downloaded, make sure to change .txt to .php.

3. Change $NOAAZone to your location.

4. Make sure to find your location at https://www.weather.gov/ and find you city. Then select printable forecast. Copy the URL and paste it in the proper location in the php file.

5. NOAAZone is found here:  https://alerts.weather.gov/

Open advforecast.php and edit these two locations (In bold) to match your location:

$NOAAZone = 'MNZ078'; // change this line to your NOAA warning zone.
// set $fileName to the URL for the point-printable forecast for your area
// NOTE: this value (and $NOAAZone) will be overridden by the first entry in $NWSforecasts if it exists.
$fileName = "https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=44.2945&lon=-92.6726&unit=0&lg=english&FcstType=text&TextType=2";
