I've taken a couple of the support scripts from the Saratoga AJAX/PHP template set that are used to provide the template wxmetar.php display, and packaged them with the needed images and a new metar-display.php script so folks can have METAR conditions displays on their websites too.

All the customization needed is in the metar-display.php sample page, so it should be relatively simple for you to port the active content to your existing website template (or just run the metar-display.php page as-is on your site).

Docs/download from http://saratoga-weather.org/scripts-metar.php#metar

Enjoy!

Thanks Ken this is great!         http://www.peotoneweather.com/metar.php

There have been a few scripts that are for the template set that I've wished had a stand alone version so I could use them.

Thanks again!

Cool! I'll give that a try. I've pulled out a few things from the templates and embedded them in my blog, namely the ajax console, local forecast and weather underground history.

I wanted to add a few reports that are not in my nearest 20 and found a way to do it. It may not be the best.... but it works. I'm sure Ken could come up with a better solution.

Using Ken's scripts for finding local METAR Reports... http://saratoga-weather.org/wxtemplates/find-metar.php

You simply plug-in coordinates that are close to the report area that you want, then copy the locations you want and paste them into the weather-settings.php file and wxmetar.php files accordingly.

I did have to figure out the miles, km's and direction from my station to override what the "find-metar.php" provides to make it accurate, fairly, from/to my site.

check it out.... http://joesweather.info/wxmetar.php

Would you have a problem with me making a modification to the script I use on my local site (GrantsPassWeather.com) so I can also display RAWS and other personal weather station data in addition to METAR?  There are very few METAR stations with data relevant to areas around here but a number of RAWS stations and, of course, all the stations that send data to PWSweather.com.

Getting PWS data in this script would be cool!

Absolutely ok with me, Joe .. feel free to modify the code as you desire and redistribute if you wish.

As far as the PWS data, I've got a ton around me. Can you grab more than one WU XML file at once to show their data?

Mysteriously the gremlins decidend to let go of their hold on the script after 3 days of pullin my hair out and finally asking for help. It works now with no error messages and I did nothing but read your reply.  ](*,)

Thanks Ken!

It was obviously a case of "script fear of the author"  :roll:  :lol:
