Working with Weather in OH2

I’m a completely new to openHAB and I’m not a programmer but I’m learning to read code more and more since I started working with Arduino.
Anyway I’m attempting to get the weather on OH2. I have the YahooWeather Binding working in the basicUI by following the instructions found here.
But I’d prefer the temperature to show in degrees F. Is this possible using the YahooWeather Binding for OH2?

I have an API Key for Forcast.IO (aka DarkSky API) but I can’t tell if the Weather Binding should work in OH2 cause I can’t get it working using the following instructions.

As a complete beginner does anyone have any advise on what Binding I should use?
And does anyone know of a good tutorial for working with Weather in OH2?
Thank you for any help or advice you can provide.

Yes, yes it is.

Hi @BrutalBirdie
Yes that is the page I used to get the YahooWeather working to show the temperature in Degrees Celsius but I don’t see where it explains how to get, or how to change it to Degrees Fahrenheit. Is it possible to show the temperature in Fahrenheit using the Yahoo Binding if so can you guide me in the direction to those instructions. ?

That doesn’t seem to be compatible with OH2 here is the info shown in the log file after I added that rule.

Should that still work on OH2?


I found the answer thanks @spiegdon for providing your solution

I now have the temperature showing in fahrenheit.

What is the proper way to generate forecast for weather with min max temp for OH2?

seem like Yahoo binding doesn’t offer all those rich possibilities as OH1.x binding did.

I would like to generate such widget in OH2
