Absolute Weather for Rainmeter by C---M Absolute Weather for Rainmeter by C---M
Absolute Weather for Rainmeter
1920 x 1200 | 1680 x 1050

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


• Wallpaper
• 48 weather variants
• Weather description and temperature
• This skin comes in two dimensions, 1920 x 1200 & 1680 x 1050

Dimensions for 1920 x 1080 | 1600 x 900 | 1366 x 768 can be found here


• 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 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.


Update 2: Now compatible with Windows XP
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 Background)

Once again it's an amazing job and thanks a lot for sharing.

Once question: would it be possible to have the wallpaper in higher resolution?
On my configuration (1366x768) size of the wallpaper is only 87k...

Thanks a lot in advance and congratulations again.

Waou that's great stuff.
Finally something creative and original, well done and thank for sharing.
(just regret that it's not compatible with 1280x800 on my computer at work :( )

The minimum requirement is Windows 7. I'll make it Windows XP in the new update.

Very original mate is there any chance you could do a 1366x768 Res version as it is the most used display size worldwide. Thanks anyway
