Marine Weather Forecast



  • Hello All,

    How difficult would it be to create a module to display the marine weather forecast from a source such as shown below?

    For example:

    REST OF TODAY
    SOUTH WINDS 5 TO 10 KNOTS. SEAS AROUND 2 FEET. PERIOD
    5 SECONDS. INTRACOASTAL WATERS A LIGHT CHOP.

    TONIGHT
    SOUTH SOUTHWEST WINDS 5 TO 10 KNOTS. SEAS AROUND
    2 FEET. DOMINANT PERIOD 7 SECONDS. INTRACOASTAL WATERS A LIGHT CHOP.

    THURSDAY
    WEST WINDS AROUND 5 KNOTS BECOMING SOUTH SOUTHWEST
    IN THE AFTERNOON. SEAS AROUND 2 FEET. DOMINANT PERIOD 7 SECONDS.
    INTRACOASTAL WATERS SMOOTH.

    SOURCE: http://forecast.weather.gov/shmrn.php?mz=amz650

    I would love to create my own module and thought this might be a good one to start with, although I have a strong IT background my programming knowledge is very limited. Any idea or pointers on where to begin would be greatly appreciated!

    Best regards,

    Kev



  • @kevsfastz a good starting point would be to take one of the weather modules, and try to understand how it works internally and try to adapt it to your needs
