Have to admit I've never thought of doing that but it should be possible!
However it may be better (a faster responce) to use AHP.
Create a macro that sends all commands and have weatherwatch trigger the macro.
The macro could be uploaded to the CM15A so AHP didn't need to be running.

the weather plugin uses info from a CSV (text) file.
So if you have a site in europe that you can get this from or another program to generate that file you'll be able to use it.
Other users in Europe and Australia have found ways to generate the info from a local site so it is possible.
Sorry I don't Know the particulars maybe one of them will chime in with the how to.
It was designed mainly for use with a personal weather station. Software that come with these stations usualy generate a CSV file.

Hey T,

Now that pcc creates its own csv file for weather were does it save it and what is the order of the values.  I would like to start using this for weather watch and pcc weather triggers but not sure what values are what.  It would help alot of us if you could post a layout of what columns relate to what readings in the csv file.

With the current version of PCC it creates a CSV file for it now
Since this uses the same pull as iHouse it is configurable for Europe or any good sized city in the world!

How are you using X10WeatherWatch?
« Reply #23 on: November 18, 2014, 01:31:38 pm »

Since I've picked up an Aurite weather station I've been able to generate a CSV file that is updated every 18 seconds.
the info is uploaded to the net using rapid fire reporting.
This makes for very accurate reporting and precise triggering of events based on values.
I already had things triggering on temperature and wind speed variations (mostly sound alerts).
However with data now being collected more frequently I can trigger very quickly events.
I'm replace my pellet stove this year and have managed to figure out how to start stop this using X10.( I'll post to the x10 forum once I have the bugs worked out)
I also have it connected to a programmable thermostat but the added flexibility to  start stop this based info from my weather station should cut down on pellet consumption even more so.
I'm just wondering what else everyone is using this for or if it isn't possible to use it the way you wish.
I'm planning a little code tweaking to this plug-in and may offer it as a separate download since PCC isn't needed for this to work.

The 2016 Plugin pack will see a revamp of this plugin.
However the look remains much the same.
For those using this with the PCC csv weather file you'll notice your able to get more recent values as PCC can now pull web data as frequent as every 20 seconds.
This will mean a quicker triggering of X10 or PCC usercommands.
X10WW also makes use of the Monitored housecode file so If a x10 address status changes it will see that and also can update that file.
