Weather Page Changes

Post by BillMiddlebrook »

I've updated the 14ers.com Weather Page to utilize the National Weather Service data feed/API instead of embedding the entire NWS forecast page. Last year, the NWS changed most of their pages to use secure, SSL connections but failed to convert all of them so embedding the page on 14ers.com caused dead links and browser errors. I don't expect them to fix the problems so I've used their API to load simple forecasts on our weather page. The basics are there: Forecast, Detailed Forecast and the hourly weather graph and you'll find more links at the bottom.
