DESCRIPTION

The weatherrc file format is intended to specify a set of aliases by which to group URIs for METAR station conditions and alert/forecast zones, but other command-line options and flags for the weather utility can be specified as well. The file is organized as an INI-format config, with the alias name in [] brackets and the associated parameter/value pairs on following lines. Parameters and their values are separated by = or : characters. Multi-word values do not need quoting. These parameters are supported...
alert include local alert notices (possible values are False and True or 0 and 1)
atypes list of alert notification types to display (ex: tornado_warning,urgent_weather_message)
cache control all caching (possible values are False and True or 0 and 1)
cache_data
  control retrieved data caching (possible values are False and True or 0 and 1)
cache_search
  control search result caching (possible values are False and True or 0 and 1)
cacheage
  duration in seconds to refresh cached data (ex: 900)
cachedir
  directory for storing cached searches and data (ex: ~/.weather)
conditions
  output current conditions (possible values are False and True or 0 and 1)
defargs
  list of default command-line arguments (ex: avl,rdu)
forecast
  include a local forecast (possible values are False and True or 0 and 1)
headers
  list of conditions headers to display (ex: temperature,wind)
imperial
  filter/convert conditions for US/UK units (possible values are False and True or 0 and 1)
metric filter/convert conditions for metric units (possible values are False and True or 0 and 1)
quiet skip preambles and don’t indent (possible values are False and True or 0 and 1)
setpath
  directory search path for correlation sets (ex: .:~/.weather)
verbose
  show full decoded feeds (possible values are False and True or 0 and 1)

EXAMPLES

The following is an example ~/.weather/weatherrc defining a couple aliases named home and work to be displayed when running the utility with no aliases specified...

[default]
defargs = home,work

[home] description = Conditions and Forecast at Home forecast = True metar = http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/decoded/KRDU.TXT zone_forecast = http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/forecasts/zone/nc/ncz041.txt

[work] description = Conditions at Work metar = http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/decoded/KGSO.TXT

Now if weather is invoked by itself on the command line, it will output conditions for home and work, and also a forecast for home only.
