GlobeWeather Premium - J3
GlobeWeather Premium Edition for Joomla 3.x
For personal, one-man business and non-profit websites only. Limited support.
Current version: 2.2.0. Compatible with PHP 5.3+ and PHP 7.
Configuration overview: see here.
Also available as Business Edition.
An extended version of the standard GlobeWeather Worldwide weather module, including the option to automatically calculate and apply sunset/sunrise times for weather stations (AutoCalc) and DST detection (depends on server configuration).
No registration or subscription to any weather services needed. Weather data are obtained from the US AWC (Aviation Weather Center). The Premium Edition uses the basic version of our proprietary SmartMetar data retrieval technology. No weather forecasts.
With this Premium Edition, you will no longer need to re-adjust the sunrise/sunset times for your weather stations, that is if you really want to stay in tune with changing seasons and if you have enabled the AutoCalc option. GlobeWeather Premium will automatically calculate and apply sunrise and sunset times for you, so that the proper day/night weather icons are displayed. Only in special cases, i.e. for extreme high latitude stations, you will still need to pay some extra attention. The AutoCalc option is configurable. In the business edition, the AutoCalc configuration includes the type of sunrise/sunset calculation, i.e. standard, civil, nautical or astronomical.
There are two additional icon sets and ample other configuration options, for example you can choose which weather data are to be displayed and much more.

You may want to try the free standard edition first. The standard edition does not include AutoCalc, does not use SmartMetar technology and has significantly less configuration options.
