Weather

Welcome to the PolarLava Weather project.

After dealing with numerous other weather retrieval projects, I reached a point where contributing to them still wasn't getting me where I wanted to be.  Thus in July of 2006 I finally bit the bullet and wrote my own solution from scratch.  There's a pretty long history behind this project and my adventures in weather retrieval that you can read about here.  For current information on the status of this project, follow the Development link at the left.

This class will allow you to retrieve the NWS XML Feed for a specific location as well as the observation station data which lists all available locations.  I use it to retrieve hourly weather data for my CycleLog, 24 x 7 x 365.

This PHP class will only work in PHP5.  If you or your hosting company are still running not running PHP5 you should seriously consider upgrading or moving to a new hosting provider.
