Do I Need a Jacket? by FlyingHyrax Do I Need a Jacket? by FlyingHyrax

"Do I Need a Jacket?"

Yet another Rainmeter weather skin

"A simple, straightforward interpretation of the weather - It's like having your mom on your desktop!"

All credit for the idea goes to: [link]
However, the skin does not actually use that website. The skin parses current weather info from Yahoo! Weather and does the math in the skin. The only downside to this - Y! Weather does not provide wind gusts data, which is important for a skin like this.

On mouseover, the skin shows three buttons for the Settings.txt file, Refresh, and the Readme file. Please refer to the readme ("info.rtf") for explanations of all the variables in Settings.txt and instructions on how to find your Yahoo! weather location code.

Looks like Yahoo! made some changes to their weather page, and removed the RSS button. The feed still works, but you can't go from the forecast page to the RSS feed to wind your Yahoo/ WOEID. In the US, instead of using your WOEID, you should just be able to use your ZIP code. For those outside the US, try this:
- Go to (the Weather Channel) and search for your location, preferably using a city and country.
- On the page for your location, look at the URL bar. It should be something like this: htt.p://
- The sequence of eight letters and numbers near the end of the URL, between the last "/" and the ":", are that location's WOEID. For instance, Johannesburg, South Africa (the link above) is SFXX0023. Use the WOEID to set your location for the skin as indicated in the README file.

i know this is an old thread, but this is a great little widget ...

as someone said, its just like having mum on the computer screen :)

i have read thru all the pages here and am having an issue ... i changed the original color (can't remember what it was) to a dark grey ... i decided after a while that i didn't like it so changed it to white text, which looks ok as i usually use darker wallpapers   ... however, since then i have been unable to change the color at all ... despite deleting the whole DINAJ folder from the rainmeter skins folder in my docs (can anyone tell me the corect way to delete a skin from rainmeter?) and re installing DINAJ

any ideas what might be wrong and how to fix it?

here is my settings file (from clicking the little gear icon) >




font1=Segoe UI Light

what i would really like to do is have the top line one color
and the bottom line a different color


top line > Colour1=240,240,240 > whitish grey
bottom line > Colour2=255,183,65 > orange

any ideas on how to do this anyone?

This isn't updating automatically. I have to manually refresh it to see the correct info. Does anyone know how to fix this?

This is neat. It doesn't display numbers. It just displays what I need to know.

Probably a bug it's 24°C now...

EDIT: Double comment, I'm new to deviantart and don't know if the "hide" deletes it

How do I change the color of the text?
FlyingHyrax Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2014
Hover over the skin and click the little gear icon that appears in the top left corner to open the settings file. You can change the "color" value to anything in Hex or RGBA format as described here:…

You can click a "gear" button on a widget. This action will open settings.txt with current settings for this widget. There you can find a line called "color" with 4 numbers. The first three are (at least i assume so) traditional RGB numbers ( range: 0-255 ) and the last one (also an assumption) is the brightness or smth like that (range: 0-255)
