18 degrees celcius and rainy

Follow-up to 9 degrees celcius from Mike's blag

Looks like the new owners of Coventry Airport have found the switch that turns the weather data feed back on.

Right weather

9 degrees celcius

The weather indicator in the top right of my GNOME desktop has been saying 9 degrees celcius for the last few days:

Wrong Weather

Which is clearly wrong. I think I've just worked out why it's not updating. A common source of weather data is airports. GNOME gets it's weather information from airports. For Coventry it uses Coventry Airport. Coventry Airport has been closed due to financial difficulties. Various sites which would usually display information from it's weather data feed all say 'no data'. So looks like the closure of Coventry Airport extends to it's weather data feed. Later on I might look at making it use an alternate data source.
