Locationforecast - Weather forecast for a specified place


This modules implements a full forecast for one location, that is, a forecast with several parameters for a nine-day period.

The parameters are temperature, wind speed, wind direction, pressure, precipitation, cloudiness, fog, lowClouds, mediumClouds, highClouds and humidity.

Version 1.8:

This version will also have probability-elements for temperature, wind and symbol( norwegian locations only ). A probability element specifies certainty of prognoses for a given parameter for a given time. This certainty is defined by a probabilitycode in the following manner:

probabilitycode : certainty values.
  • 0 : [90% , 100%]
  • 1 : [50% , 90%>
  • 2 : [ 0% , 50%>
  • Note: Longterm forecast/EC-data for norwegian locations will have fewer parameters available than version 1.5.
