  • DarkSky Forecast has night instead of day

    Jeff:

    I've seen that people have run across this in trying the DarkSky beta, but those have seemed to be spurious. I have one of the 7 forecasts that has a NIGHT condition instead of a day, and I can't seem to get it to change to a day forecast. In the picture below, it is day 5 (Sunday):

    Any suggestions? I tried deleting the Speak text for Tonight and Tomorrow Night in the Custom tab, but it just comes back after I go away from that tab and come back to it.

    The condition icons are in the json file. I have went through the file several different times when I get a night condition image and the icon matches what is in the file. I converted all of the time numbers and every forecast day is midnight of each day so there is no pattern that I can find on what days get a day icon and what day gets a night icon.

      After you delete the text for the Tonight and Tomorrow Night textareas, you have to scroll down and click save. HS never added an auto save for the text areas like the single line textbox has.

        Jeff:

        This is the "Custom" tab, yes? I guess I'm dense and/or going blind, as I don't see a save button. Can you send me a picture?

          Sorry, you mentioned speaking so I thought you were talking about a speak device. The custom tab in admin is designed to allow users that speak different languages to replace the words in the column on the left with what they type into the textboxes on the right. They will not go away. But if you don't want them to be different then just leave them the same in both columns. I'm not following what you were trying to do on that page. If you were trying to replace the night icons to display day icons I would suggest taking the icon you use for the day and making a copy that has the night name as well. I don't see any way to control what gets put into the data from DarkSky as far as day vs night icons.

              That was to answer the user who had posted an image of the speak devices.

                Jeff:

                So the take-away from this is:

                I don't see any way to control what gets put into the data from DarkSky as far as day vs night icons.
                So if we get some scattered night forecasts, that is just the way DarkSky works...

                  This is from the DarkSky FAQ on the icons. I read this to mean if they have night forecast it's "worst" condition of that day.

                  In the meantime, you can assume that if partly-cloudy-night is the worst weather condition that was found, that it was clear during the day. So you can just treat partly-cloudy-night as an alias for clear-day.

                    I appreciate you digging that out of the FAQ. If I understand the info, seems you can’t just copy the clear-day icon to use as the partly-cloudy-night icon because if current conditions at night are partly cloudy, then your condition icon would be a sun!

                      They also state they will change it and add more in the future or something to that effect. So I just picked icons from NOAA that matched the names they listed and don't worry about it. Here are the icons I use.

                        I'm open to ideas on how this should work. Personally, I'm ok with the night icons.

                        On the subject of forecast icons.... One of the legacy devices uses html code to build a multi day forecast. It has never worked in HSTouch due to the html code. I now have it working so it creates an image that can be used in HSTouch, and web pages, etc.

                            The created image will use whatever icons you have setup to use for each location. I have a location setup to use the Norway.YR site. Below is the vertical version of the image using icons from Norway.YR.

                              I would drop the HTML code/table aspect for HSTouch and just focus on the devices... let the users get their own graphics (BTW, the NOAA ones are terrible from a graphical consistency standpoint ), rename name, and place each variable wherever they want in their HSTouch project.
