    FWIW, I use "NOAA Weather (US Only)" as my forecast provider In Weather XML. When it was set to DarkSky, all of the forecasts came in as, "Clear throughout the day". Now that I'm on NOAA, I have different short forecasts per day and it's been working great. What is the attraction to DarkSky anyway?

    Maybe Ambient will pay the high fees to keep using Apple/Dark Sky come 2022? Here's to hoping.

So I was using darksky. But ambient weather just added forecasts now I just need the HS plugin to be updated to include it.

    Hi all. I found a workaround to get this working with minimal effort. In summary, the WeatherXML plugin appears to be a .NET application. You should be able to force the app to use TLS v1.2, which is now required by DarkSky, by updating the .NET config file.
    Thank you very much for this.

    I had the same problem on Windows 2k8 R2 Server and solved it by adding the line to HSPI_WEATHERXML.exe.config file (as previously noted in post 39) and I also needed to do the following steps by editing the registry as follows:

    How to enable TLS 1.2 on Windows Server 2008 R2:
    1. Start the registry editor by clicking on Start and Run. Type in "regedit" into the Run field (without quotations).
    2. Highlight Computer at the top of the registry tree. Backup the registry first by clicking on File and then on Export. Select a file location to save the registry file.
    3. Note: You will be editing the registry. This could have detrimental effects on your computer if done incorrectly, so it is strongly advised to make a backup.
    4. Browse to the following registry key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Security Providers\SCHANNEL\Protocols
    5. Right click on the Protocols folder and select New and then Key from the drop-down menu. This will create new folder. Rename this folder to TLS 1.2.
    6. Right click on the TLS 1.2 key and add two new keys underneath it.
    7. Rename the two new keys as:
      • Client
      • Server
    8. Right click on the Client key and select New and then DWORD (32-bit) Value from the drop-down list.
    9. Rename the DWORD to DisabledByDefault.
    10. Right-click the name DisabledByDefault and select Modify... from the drop-down menu.
    11. Ensure that the Value data field is set to 0 and the Base is Hexadecimal. Click on OK.
    12. Create another DWORD for the Client key as you did in Step 7.
    13. Rename this second DWORD to Enabled.
    14. Right-click the name Enabled and select Modify... from the drop-down menu.
    15. Ensure that the Value data field is set to 1 and the Base is Hexadecimal. Click on OK.
    16. Repeat steps 7 to 14 for the Server key (by creating two DWORDs, DisabledByDefault and Enabled, and their values underneath the Server key).
    17. Reboot the server.
    Your server should now support TLS 1.2.

    Unfortunately I have NOT. "Sirmeili" has taken over that PI several months back but I haven't seen any updates on it. My question about adding forecasts has been unanwsered on the forum so far.

    Regardless, I finally came across this thread (been searching every now and then - guess my searches weren't very good). Just updated the config file, stopped and started WeatherXML, changed back from NOAA to DarkSky and all is well. Thanks all.

    PS: WeatherXML is a great plug-in: seems very well thought out and written. I'd be GLAD to pay for this, even retroactively, if ever Jeff wants this.
    The Weather XML plugin is one of the best out there and Jeff has put a ton of work into it. I don’t think this is a financial decision for him, he is taking care of his family.

    I’m using weather to automate our HVAC system so having the forecast will be important.

    The writing is on the wall for Dark Sky. At least we have quite a while before it stops working.

    Add this to the long list of reasons I dislike Apple.

    This is not good news. With Jeff not having time to make updates to this plugin and weather sources disappearing, we’ll need to find an alternative. Is a personal weather station the best option?

    For those of you not relying on DarkSky, what are you using to get current and forecast weather into HS?
