“Do I Need a Jacket?”
Because there aren’t enough Rainmeter weather skins
Update on the progress of the old “Do I Need a Jacket?” skin.
(Last updated 10 April 2016)
Improvements thus far:
Uses Lua instead of trying to cram logic into the skin file
Many more adverbs (though it’s probably less witty overall)
Instead of trying to incorporate wind speed into the jacket equation, just checks the Wind Chill temperature value
Simplified settings: location, English/Metric, jacket temperature threshold, coat temperature threshold
Can change the size by scrolling the mouse over the skin
Text alignment (left, right, centered) is selectable from the skin context menu
The latest version uses Weather.com’s wxdata feed – you will need a Weather.com location code.
The code can be found in the URL on the forecast page for your location on Weather.com, using jsmorley ‘s WXDataWeather skin, or via
A fix for the old version, which used a Yahoo! weather feed, can be found here: forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.…
