They are very cool (in my opinion).  Will they work with Weathercat?

Might work with tweaking (Re: Add-in scripts for saratoga-weather)

Dear nowait and WeatherCat fans of MORE!!!

I stumbled upon so add-in scripts developed by Murray Conaroe of Wildwood Weather for saratoga-weather.org.

. . . .

They are very cool (in my opinion).  Will they work with Weathercat?

Well they certainly might work since they use the NOAA report format that WeatherCat supports.  The 64-dollar question is how do these scripts get access to the NOAA reports?  WeatherCat might not provide the files in exactly the way the scripts are expecting.  For example, WeatherCat is storing the NOAA reports on your local hard drive as a PDF file.  These scripts might need the files to be uploaded to a server.

Still, I would expect the tweaks would be modest.  We have a number of fellows on the forum who are getting skilled in slicing and dicing PHP, Perhaps one of them would be interested in trying to make these scripts work with WeatherCat.

Cheers, Edouard

There is also a similar set of scripts using your WU data.
If you are uploading to WU you could use these also:

Hi All,

Short answer is yes they will work as I have them on my site (http://www.cecilweather.com/wxtempdetail.php).  I am not sure they will work though with the WC NOAA pages as they have specific formatting needs.  It has been a while since I have done this but someone else posted a while back a method to generate past NOAA pages the script needs pulling info from MySQL data.  Then a PHP page needs to be run nightly to keep things up to date. 

I followed this post from 2013 to get things working.  Hope this helps!
