Absolute Weather for Rainmeter
1920 x 1080 | 1600 x 900 | 1366 x 768

This is an interactive weather skin that incorporates the current weather into your background wallpaper.

Features:

Wallpaper
48 weather variants
Weather description and temperature
This skin comes in two dimensions, 1920 x 1080 & 1600 x 900

Dimensions for 1920 x 1200 & 1680 x 1050 can be found here

This skin contains a lot of image files that take up a lot of space so it is recommended that you delete the extra variations of screen resolutions that you are not using.

Instructions:

Run the installer.
Go to your Rainmeter skin directory: "...Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Absolute Weather" (the path may vary depending on your OS)
Open the Weather.ini file and define the weather code and temperature unit in the variables section.
- To find the weather code, go to Weather.com and search for your city. Copy the 8-digit code at the end of the URL and paste it after "WeatherCode=" in the variables section of the .ini file. (ex. WeatherCode=USNY1232 for Rochester, NY)
Define the temperature unit with a lowercase c for Celsius or a lowercase f for Fahrenheit.


Wallpaper


Update 3: Now compatible with Windows XP
Update 2: 1366 x 768 is now available
Update 1: Wallpaper is automatically set and the click though setting is already applied
- If the Wallpaper doesn't automatically set then go to your rainmeter skin directory: "...Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Absolute Weather" , locate the folder labeled as your screen resolution and use the picture provided in the folder as your wallpaper. (right click the picture, click Set as Desktop
