Some scripts for displaying a weather forecast in conky.

1b2 Accuweather ConkyWeather font

1d Accuweather RSS
2a WUnderground ICAL International users

2b_WUnderground API All users
3 NWS XML USA users
4 Weather.com all users

5 Moon Phase
1a Accuweather ConkyWeather font

1b1 Accuweather Images

1c Accuweather Hourly Forecast
Find them at the Crunchbang Forums in the Conky weather scripts using Accuweather/WUnderground/NWS/Weather.com thread along with other layouts using Teo's scripts. The scripts are bash scripts and as such should run on any *nix system. Take note: Teo is excellent at supporting them and fixing bugs.

They use:

  1. Accuweather
  2. Weather Underground
  3. National Weather Service (USA), and
  4. Weather.com

They all rely on the same principle: download a bunch of pages, parse them and isolate the necessary info for conky to find.

There is something for everyone: from the minimalistic, to the humongous, larger than life, "I'm a meteorologist" aspect.
