MMM-3Day-Forecast

3 day forecast OR 3 day forecast

This a module for the MagicMirror. This module shows a 3 day forecast (today, tomorrow and the day after) using the Wunderground API. It displays the overall weather condition, highest temperature, likely-hood of rain, average humidity, highest windspeed and its direction forecast. This is designed to compliment the MMM-Weather-Now module.

Note: The Weather company has ceased the free API that this module was based on, as a result this is now based on the API offered by BitWeather. If you are updating to this version then please don't forget to update your config too!

Installation

  1. Navigate into your MagicMirror's modules folder and execute git clone https://github.com/nigel-daniels/MMM-3Day-Forecast. A new folder MMM-3Day-Forecast will appear, navigate into it.
  2. Execute npm install to install the node dependencies.

Notes

I hope you like this module, I know it duplicates many other weather modules, however I missed my home-brew mirrors weather information so I recreated it for MM2. Feel free to submit pull requests or post issues and I'll do my best to respond.
