The thing is I get a very detailed weather report and forecast (using wttr.in) for my nearest little town, but nothing at all for much larger towns and Cities.
What’s got me Flummoxed is the fact that much bigger towns, like Toowoomba, don’t register, while the little town I’m near, in the back blocks of Queensland does.
Yeah we have an airstrip here, but Toowoomba has an airport, so does Hervey Bay, for example. But those two Cities don’t register.
And Toowoomba is closer to a met station than we are, unless you count the tiny country airstrip weather weather measurement service.
I’m starting pull my hair out.
Well how about that. If there is only one town or city with the name you are looking for, you need… no MUST enter only the town or city name plus the country name. If the city or Town name occurs once only in the world, you may enter only that … so Paris is a valid searh parm
It is only where there are multiple town in a country with the same name that you are required to enter the State, so my closest towns Must be entered as , Queensland, Australia, because there is a town with the same name in NSW, so Toowoomba is entered as Toowoomba, Australia… searching for Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia throws an error.
so the upshot is wattr.in is working as written.
Now here’s an interesting thing. We have an area in Queensland known as Mount Isa, a search in wttr.in using wttr.in/Mount%20Isa will find it, bit the actual area that is being reported on is the Town of ‘Mary Kathleen’, which is the actual town at that location.
What’s interesting here is that no one ever mentions ‘Mary Kathleen’, you never go to ‘Mary Kathleen’ you always go to Mount Isa.
