    It appears that this service has been changed – my calendar weather stopped on 6/1/2019 and no future days display the calendar. I would love to know of another way to have weather on my calendar!

    This no longer works. Is there another option?

    Kathy and Erica –

    Give it a tiny bit of time, this has happened before (although never for this long…)

    If they don’t fix it in the next couple days I’ll be researching an alternative… Cheers!

    How do I do this for a postal code for the UK? Thanks in advance, Kim

    These are great instructions. Googled how to get a weather calendar and this is the only thing that has worked. Thank you!

    How do I remove this calendar? It’s pushing too many appointments out of sight on the monthly view. I can’t see it as a separate calendar to remove?
    Help!

    It’s nice to have the weather back, via weather underground! However, I am getting only today’s weather with none of the mentioned forecast events….which, to be perfectly honest, is a waste of effort. If I need to go look at the NOAA site for tomorrow’s (and next few days) weather, I really don’t need the weather, for only today, taking up space on my calendar.

    Mine stopped at July 9. It’s really useful and I’d like to get it back. Did anyone having difficulties in June have their problem clear up?

  • Ross McKillop July 12, 2019, 8:43 pm

    Scott –

    It did clear up in June, and now there’s a “glitch” again. It’s happening more and more often, which is a bummer for sure. Sadly, I don’t think WU considers this a very important service… :(

    Yes- very annoying- currently (July 16) the “Weather Calendar” 1) shows only today’s (and previous days, who needs it?) 2) how the heck can it be disabled, eliminated, deleted?
