Hmmmm, in reading samplestrings.ini it only lists the 26 forecasts, although it says "exceptional=exceptional weather" right before the forecast list starts. I only have png's numbered from 1-26. Do I need 2 more for the negatives?

I've listed my new webtag question on the enhancement request forum, as well as the website development:

I'll let you know what I hear.

Hi Jacques,

Thanks for the improvement in forecast display.
These icons look great, and at least I don't see the sun at 1:20am in the forecast image but a nice moon (unfortunately with some rain drops......)
(see attachment: CORRECT timestamp versus icon  :D  :D )

Cheers,

Arthur

[attachment=0:314n07p4]Snapz Pro XScreenSnapz001.jpg[/attachment:314n07p4]Looks like, according to Steve, the <#lowtempalarm> would work just like the proposed new tag <#isfreezing>.

So it sounds like I'll be doubling my icon count from 52 to 104.

Hi Tom,

As I've already done the "Winter Kit" for winther days...

Only 26 icons to do!!  :D
... and only 13 if we duplicate incons where no sun/moon appear! :D

Regards,
Jacques

Excellent!

What are you using in your htm file to trigger the use of winter icons? Do you just swap them out during the winter months, or are you using <#lowtempalarm> to indicate whether they should be used?

I'm probably going to do the latter so I don't have to remember to swap out icons in winter.

Hi Tom,

Effectively, I switch by hand, Mainly because since some years,
we have a couple of days with (icy) rain in winter... and Temp below 0c (32f)  :shock:

But, I agree that we're better to show some days with snow instead of rain,
then forgot to switch it during 1 month!!  :lol:

Life is a journey, not the destination, but the scenery along the should be and the mood at the view.
