Hi friends. I have been using MM for quite a while and love it. Recently my weather displaying at the bottom simply says “Loading…” I have tried so many modules in the weather section of MM modules with no luck. Can someone recommend a weather module that currently works?
Thanks a million…
@bclinton1962 what weather module were you using?
@bclinton1962 MMM-OpenWeatherForecast works great
@bclinton1962 I had the same journey and finally used MMM-OpenWeatherMapForecast in table view.

@bclinton1962 I use openweather forcast for my forecasts, and for the current data (due to the local station being placed where it’s constantly wrong), I use MMM-CommandToNotification and MMM-ValuesByNotification to read my davis weather station.
I’ve recently been down this rabbit hole and @sdetweil helped me investigate along with @KristjanESPERANTO. I’m new to MagicMirror but I think the issue is related to API keys (registered on March 2023 with OpenWeatherMap) and the particular weather module. I found that
MMM-weatherforecastwas another module that worked for me using my new API keys, similar to the default weather module. For now, I’ll be searching for some other modules and using the default module until a newer module becomes available that uses the API 3.0 keys.
A quick update and I finally think I figured it out, at least for MMM-OpenWeatherForecast by:
- Subscribing to Open Weather’s One Call by Call (https://openweathermap.org/price)
- Changing my node_helper.js line 44 from 2.5 to 3.0 :
var url = https://api.openweathermap.org/data/3.0/onecall?"
I hope this helps someone else because it was difficult for me to understand why some modules would work and others would not with the same API key.
