More info on the weather in iCal!

Many readers found the solution to avoid downloading the weather every week to get it in iCal and consequently on your portable devices. This is concerning last Tuesday's tip "Weather in iCal". Instead of clicking on "iCal", you can right-click on it and select "Copy Link Location". After that, you just have to go in iCal and choose "Subscribe" from the "Calendar" menu. Paste the link, press "Subscribe" and you now have the weather in iCal and it will be updated just like an RSS feed. Thanks everyone for helping find this solution!

Don't forget to take a look at the tip posted earlier today.

In case you are not familiar with Fahrenheit units, but prefer Celsius, change the last word in the address "both" for "metric". Thanks for the tip!

Where is the "iCal" button on the weather website?

OK guys, for both of you:

go to the website, choose your country on the map and then select your city from the list. In the upper right corner you should see two buttons: iCal and RSS. Right click the iCal button and choose Copy link location.

Go to iCal and choose "Subscribe" from the "Calendar" menu. Paste the link, change the last word (both) for "metric", press "Subscribe" and you now have the weather in iCal.

Did it work?

Thank you very much. It worked for me. That's pretty much exactly what I was looking for. :)

you can also change the "both" to "english" to only show fahrenheit. if you need to change the link in iCal, menu --> calendar --> change URL. pretty easy!

I subscribed to two cities on the website and they were downloaded successfully to iCal. I then set the "refresh" option to "daily". It has transpired that only one of the downloads has remained active in iCal; the other has disappeared.
Any help/ tip on having more than one city in iCal simultaneously?
