Extended Description File
Yahoo! / The Weather Channel weather script
> Uses Yahoo! PlaceFinder for geolocation -- an excellent service that will
geolocate based on city, post code, airport code, or landmark (Eiffel
Tower, Disneyland, etc.)
> Gives current conditions, big fat red warnings / orange watches / etc. if
applicable, and links to a current animated weather map
> Gives a detailed forecast for today / tonight / tomorrow
1.2 Small bug fix
* Where a weather alert was reported by Yahoo but had expired on
wunderground, the script would expect to find alert text on
wunderground and error. Fixed.
1.1 Major changes
* Yahoo's geolocation service now requires YQL
* Yahoo's weather page format changed. Entire hierarchy of scraping
had to be rewritten.
* Due to difficulty retrieving alerts (warnings, watches, etc) via
Yahoo's weird XMLHTTP call, alerts are now scraped from wunderground
