These are the blocks that i'm using for the weather:


Quote
$_LOCALTIMEZONE = file_get_contents('/etc/timezone', NULL, NULL, 0, 1000);
$_LOCALWEATHER = $_LOCALTIMEZONE;
$_FORECAST = str_replace("/","_",$_LOCALWEATHER);

echo "<script src=\"http://www.weatherforecastmap.com/weather21.php?zona=$_FORECAST\"></script>";

Isn't going by timezone a little vague for weather?  I live in Florida, so when I ran that script, it gave me totally wrong results.  I might as well have been in Canada.

If i'm not wrong, it doesn't really check your TIMEzone. But it looks more at your timeZONE.  :-X
Have a check what you see when you do 'more /etc/timezone'. If all is well, you should see your city. Or at the least a city nearby.

i see the idea behind it.  I'm not sure if its like this in other parts of the states, but my central time shows up as chicago, which would be the closest major city as far as time goes as it is directly north, but it is about 900 miles north of us.  im pretty sure chicago is the standard setting for our location as all devices that i have ever run across give us that option as the closest.  i would think the best way to do it would be somehow by lat/long, but i dont really know anything about weather systems and api's outside of america.

City/Town information is stored in lmce and can be pulled from the database for use in scripts.
