If you’ve missed getting your weather forecasts fix through the GNOME Weather App things are about to get brighter.

An update to the GNOME weather libraries that restores weather data fetching is in the process of rolling out to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS users.

The breakage occurred following a (long planned) change of URL in a public API provided by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States (NOAA).

While there was a short-term workaround (which involved editing references in any weatherrc configuration files to use the new public endpoint).

The breakage left all libgweather-using apps, including the MATE desktop weather applet, unable to retrieve and display weather data.

But with libgweather 3.18.2 everything is balmy once again. Apps like GNOME Weather can once again help you prepare for whatever the weather throws at you.

Except it still won’t tell you if it’s going to start raining fish.
