Rainmeter Snow Skin for JohnDee.com

Snow map from JohnDee.com.

JohnDee.com has some pretty neat maps, but the URL structure is dynamic, so this one is a little more complicated than my previous skins. Enjoy!

Update: I’m not sure why this isn’t refreshing automatically, but manually refreshing the skin must reload the variables.

  1. I did some quick searching on this today, and am trying both UpdateDivider=3600 at the top level and DynamicVariables=1 for each date measure. Will report how it works and update if the refresh looks correct.
