Umbrella Today?An ultra-minimal Rainmeter weather skin
This skin was suggested by user ~veggie27
as an international alternative to my "Do I need an Umbrella?" skin
. It simply parses the feedback from the website UmbrellaToday.com
There a few limitations compared to the DINAU skin - mainly, UmbrellaToday does not report back the location that they matched to your search string. That is, you might search the website for "Athens," and UmbrellaToday will not tell you whether they are giving you the weather from Athens, Greece or Athens, Georgia (USA). This is a limitation of the website, and there's nothing I can do about it in the skin.
It's possible that the numeric codes in the URLs from UmbrellaToday (see below) are not location identifiers but rather identifiers for cached queries.

Right click on the Rainmeter skin and select "Edit Skin." (This will open the skin .ini in Rainmeter's assigned text editor.) Copy the number from the URL into the "location" key under the [Variables] section.
Save the file and refresh the skin.
To change the look of the skin from Dark to Light or vice-versa, just select the appropriate option from the context menu.
To change the font, just enter a different font name in the "font" key in the skin's [Variables] section.
