[arm-allstar] Weather Script in Metric?

Hi Doug and Chris


Thanks again for you work on this.  Yes I'm using a VK underground station
near by (it's not always running so may change to one in a town 40km away).
And yes it is reporting in metric on the web.  I did have a look at the code
but I'm out of my depth as far as that is concerned.  


Chris, I'm very happy if it's on the list for the next release. Also is
there a way of stopping it reporting if the value is zero? (eg 0 in rain
currently reports " ___ inches")

 I have two weather underground stations of my own and I see in the settings
I can make it English, Metric, or both. I am not sure how that would effect
the output to the weather script though. But even if it did I suspect you
would have to use a station that had things set that way. 

Are you using a VK underground station that is set to metric? That is if you
go to the web page for that station on WU does it display in metric? The
settings are at the top right of the page - click on the spooked wheel.

I am sure Chris will have a commen ton this.

Hi all


Great to see the developments in the new release.  I had the BBB, complete
with the Weather Script, up and running in no time!


I am only using the Weather-Underground data (as I'm not based in the U.S.)
but it works well. There is just one minor problem, it is in 'Imperial'.  Is
there an option, or can there be an option for 'Metric'?   I'm sure other
parts of the world would also benefit from this, if made available.


Again, thanks to the great team effort that has produced an incredible work
of art!
