NAME

Locationforecast - Weather forecast for a specified place

DESCRIPTION

This modules implements a full forecast for one location, that is, a forecast with several parameters for a nine-day period.

The parameters are temperature, wind speed, wind direction, pressure, precipitation, cloudiness, fog, lowClouds, mediumClouds, highClouds and humidity.

Version 1.8:

This version will also have probability-elements for temperature, wind and symbol (norwegian locations only). A probability element specifies certainty of prognoses for a given parameter for a given time. This certainty is defined by a probabilitycode in the following manner:

    probabilitycode certainty values
    --------------- ----------------
           0        [90% , 100%]
           1        [50% ,  90%>
           2        [ 0% ,  50%>

Note: Longterm forecast/EC-data for norwegian locations will have fewer parameters available than version 1.5.
