Module: Weather Underground Forecast

This is a module for MagicMirror, modified version of the default weatherforecast module.

This is similar to the default weatherforecast module, however it has additional functionality (such as displaying the probability of precipitation for each day). It also retrieves its data from Weather Underground instead of OpenWeatherMap.

The Weather Icons used in this module are created and maintained by Erik Flowers. v1.0 artwork by Lukas Bischoff. v1.1 - 2.0 artwork by Erik Flowers www.weathericons.io
