Default Weather in the UK?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a BBWeather tool thats works in the UK? I tried BBWeather with my postcode and comes back with 'invalid location'.

Thanks.

You dont use the post code. You need the international weather ccode.

Here's what I do - there are easier ways, I am sure.

go to weather.com - local weather forecasts, radar and reports from The Weather Channel from a PC
Type the name of your city/town into weather.com
For example, I typed in Liverpool - after finding Liverpool, UK, the weather for Liverpool came up.

The browser address line will now have the location for Liverpool in it - UKXX0083

Then put UKXX0083 into BBWeather.

Also you can put in a city name to get a location ID from the site below. ASP.NET Resources - Determine location ID for the weather server control
