weatherforecast showing only two days.
After latest update of MagicMirror (v2.12.0) module weatherforecast is showing only two day forecast no matter what I configure in “maxNumberOfDays” option.
Can you please help me? I tried to search for any errors in logs regarding this module or api response, but I wasn`t lucky.
Below is my config for this module and screenshot to show that it shows only two days.
header: “Predpoveď počasia”,
locationID: “3060972”, //ID from http://bulk.openweathermap.org/sample/city.list.json.gz; unzip the gz file and find your city
@erik-voznak have you tried
needs to be a number instead of a string.
fadePoint as well.
You need to be careful with the format of the values.
Look into the readme what format is expected.
I have the same problem Tryed to change in module config to change numbers of days,tried in weatherforecast.js,always the same Anybody knows how to solve problem?
tried right now and no change.
Have you updated?
Seems to be fixed in latest release from this morning
I did update this morning and issue started after update…

Had the same issue after the update.
The problem is, that the weatherforecast first checks the paid version of the API to get full day forecasts (
This results in a
401for me because I’m using a free API token.
Next the weatherforecast module falls back using the 5 day / 3 hour Forecast API by using the same
https://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/forecast?id=xxx&cnt=7&units=metric&lang=de&APPID=xxx). Here the value
cntreturns 7 entries, that’s why there is only a two day forecast.
I’ll try to write a fix.
In the meantime as a quick fix you can change line 297 of
params += "&cnt=" + (this.config.maxNumberOfDays < 1 || this.config.maxNumberOfDays > 17 ? 7 : this.config.maxNumberOfDays);
params += "&cnt=" + (this.config.maxNumberOfDays < 1 || this.config.maxNumberOfDays > 5 ? 40 : this.config.maxNumberOfDays * 8);
Remeber the fallback API provides only a 5 day forecast, that’s why maxNumberOfDays is limited to 5.
This fix worked for me too, so thanks very much.
Also, showRainAmount: “false” does not work - i still see mm rain forecast against each day.
This is all a little disappointing as up until the recent upgrade, ‘weatherforecast’ was working perfectly.
And BTW, in trying to resolve the problem with ‘weatherforecast’, before coming to this thread, I also tried the ‘weather’ module, the replacement for ‘currentweather’ and ‘weatherforecast’. I couldn’t get that to work in ‘forecast’ mode, only in ‘current’ mode. The module just displays ‘Loading…’.
