Plain text weather widget

Hi all, I am very new to coding and I am trying to get by with my current skillset. However I have hit a snag. My client has asked for a very simple, text only weather feature to appear on their footer of their site much in the same style as seen on this site:


Using the search function I came across the one that weather widget io offers, and unfortunately is still is too busy for what I am after and it does not suit the landing page design on the site. https://www.theisla.com.au/

This is the code I used below:

<a class="weatherwidget-io" href="https://forecast7.com/en/n35d71150d18/batemans-bay/" data-font="GT-Pressura-Regular" data-icons="Climacons Animated" data-days="3" >Batemans Bay NSW, Australia</a>
!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src='https://weatherwidget.io/js/widget.min.js';fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,'script','weatherwidget-io-js');

Has anyone come across something very simple and stripped back that looks like something similar to the calile hotel where it is just using text with no icons etc?

Thank you.

Take a look at https://openweathermap.org/. They provide an API that you can query to get the local weather for a city or long/lat reference.

Hi all,

I am also trying to achieve this result! I have been trying to understand how to use the Open Weather API call to get a streamlined weather widget similar to the one on this site: https://www.x-traonline.org/online

Getting it in the nav bar would be amazing, but I know that it may not be possible in Squarespace, and would also consider getting into the footer to be a win.

I've been reading the documentation for Open Weather API, but I can't quite figure out where to put the resulting code:

<script> src="https://api.openweathermap.org/data/3.0/onecall?lat=42.2832&lon=71.1265&exclude=hourly,daily&appid=39eb4a9b3c9e62ab037bb440906113b1"</script>

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you so much,

- Lu
