Environment Canada Delivers RSS Feeds
Environment Canada is now serving up RSS feeds for your local market. And these feeds are pretty detailed, giving you weather warnings, hourly weather information and 5 day forecasts. I just subscribed tonight, so I can't give a detailed review. But the feed immediately gave me an item saying that there were no weather watches or warnings, the current conditions (for 3pm this afternoon - -12.4C in Ottawa ... brrr) and the forecast for each day up until Sunday. I'm curious as to whether it's working correctly as I would have thought it would include hourly information in separate items, but maybe it just hasn't really got going yet.
It's pretty cool to see that RSS is taking off in the mainstream with EC being the latest (I'm also subscribed to CBC, BBC and Globe & Mail feeds to go along with numerous blogs and info sources).
Update: Oops, looks like they change the data in the item for the current conditions, it indicates that the current conditions are from 10pm, rather than the 3pm posting time. Now I'm curious as to what it will do when the day changes and they push out the 5 day forecast to another day.
