TWC4J

 Since weather.com retired their free XML Data Feed, we have evaluated several alternatives to continue getting and displaying weather information in a website.

We have included in our research even the paid services from weather.com, but at prices over $200.00 USD per month, for 5 days forecasts, they quickly got out the viable solutions.

Finally, we opted for the free service of the Norwegian Meteorological Institute that provides 9 days forecasts.

Because of the good acceptance of TWC4J, we chose to make it completely independent of Joomla, although it can be used in Joomla, now it can be used in most of the major CMS (like Drupal and WordPress).

We renamed the project as FweatherF and made an independent site for it at fweatherf.com
