Zap Weather (formerly Z Weather) is a Joomla application that displays weather for U.S.A. cities and territories using data provided by the National Weather Service. Forecasts, current conditions and weather alerts are supported. Many display options are available, including single and multiple day forecasts and a choice of either 3, 12 or 24 hour forecast display. Zap Weather is also compatible with the JED extension Zap Calendar, allowing the display of weather forecast information within a calendar.
Zap Weather is absolutely free to use and DOES NOT have any advertising or links to commercial sites that other weather products require. The weather data Zap Weather uses is provided free of charge by the U.S. government.
The only problem is finding your cities information. I have included some links to help.
- Observation Location Code
- Latitude & Longitude
- CAP Zone (Find state, click on XML under "By County/Zone")
Can't wait for the next update to see what has been added.
The one thing I'd change is how new cities are added to the list. Right now, you have to look up the city's longitude, latitude, airport code and CAP zone (a code used for weather alerts), but it would be nice if just putting in a ZIP code was all that was needed.
Thanks a BILLION Dan. A++
Keep doing the good job. I know it´s still in beta step, but as a recomendation, it would be nice to consider make it multi-languaje or easier to translate. I know it´s a US weather component, but spanish and french versions will be higly required for Mex and Can cities close to the US border.
