Learning to Use URL Parameters
Weathercloud is a great way to share your weather data with family, friends and other weather buffs. On this Blog post we’re unveiling all the URL parameters you can use to control how your station is displayed to others, including the language, units of measure and many more.
Make sure you add ? before the first parameter and & between parameters. Also keep in mind that if the person viewing your station has previously set his units and language, either as a registered user or as a guest, his configuration will prevail.
