The free Local Weather page is easily installed on your site by using a script call in your HTML pages.
The page is customised to the location of your choice by including a postcode in the call. The script then automatically locates the relevant location based on the postcode you included in your script call.
To include the free Local Weather page, simply insert this script into your HTML page.
In order to customise the script to your desired location, simply replace 'POSTCODE' with the postcode of you choice. You may also add a 'locality' parameter if you wish by adding &locality=LOCALITY after the postcode. This is recommended, as it will ensure that your closest weather station is provided.
If you wish you may modify the style settings so that the presentation of the weather fits with the appearence of your page.
For example if you wanted the current weather for Sellicks Hill to appear in your page, your script call would look like this:
where 5174 is the postcode for Sellicks Hill.
The script always selects the closest weather station to the location you request. It also has a few smarts built into it. If your normal weather station is not reporting for any reason, then the script will automatically select the next closest station. This means that your Local Weather page will never display any information more than two hours old. As soon as your normal weather station is back online the page will switch back to your normal station.
