** New in version 10: Support for PHP 7, new forecast module, fix to observation display

Zap 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.

Home page forcast

This extension was downloaded after several others and proved to have great function.
Ease of use
The forecast is very easy to use on both my end and the viewers end.
I used this to: This gadget is used to give my viewers a real time forecast that supports what i am trying to tell them through announcements!
I loved installing and using this! Easy to use and set it up in minutes on a J1.5.

Unfortunately, I upgraded all of my sites to 2.5 and now I am missing this!! Please, please develop for J2.5!

Good product and simple too

I am well amazed with this product. I would recommend this product to all with happiness
i try to contact the developer and ask in the forum and NO SUPPORT RECEIVED, at the end i need to remove the extension because not work as advertised
Owner's reply: I'm sorry you did not get a timely response to your issue. The web site forum is actively monitored and the application is supported. There was also a patch to Z Weather released recently.
Do you have somewher the german translation? That would be great.
This is a great component.

Today I spent an hour to find how to resolve "Current Conditions" issue (for those who has an older version) without removing old and installing new version.

Great component...

I was searching for a module that can display weather report for a specific city. Through this component I got the data I needed. It s really cool... But I want to display it on the top portion [ There i have placed a module] of my site for all the pages... ie as a module. I dont know how to show it in a module. Can anyone please help me..

Thanks in advance...
This is one of the better weather modules/componants available for Joomla. Installation is quick, easy, however, you MUST follow the directions precisely - anyone just slapping this into their site WILL have issues doing so.

Weather forecasts are derived directly from the National Weather Service, and are updated "on the fly"...

This is definately a great mod/com for US sites wishing to put weather on their websites.

Works fine! Just follow the instructions -

1. install com - set up menu item

2. install mod

3. chron - not getting it to work with a godaddy/shared account.

The time displayed is in GMT - not sure how to change it to local time (same comments on zcontent forume)
Tried to install with the legacy plugin and it was a not go. Crashed my site with a big fat error message. 10 minutes i will never get back.

I would try another component unless using 1.0
