Met Office National Text Forecast

Hello, 

I would like to pull the UK Met Office national text forecast into my site and have it automatically update. Would be great to have it separated into an accordion style, seen here. I have setup something similar on my site, seen here but I am struggling with how to get it all setup re code.

Been looking at https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/datapoint/product/regional-text-forecast/detailed-documentation  

Can anyone help? I would be very grateful. 

Thank you

Hello Mark!

As far as I know, Weather Station does not allow to do this natively 😉 

I doesn't understand very well what you want to do and how I can help you...

If you like Weather Station, please consider to make a review to help make it known. That would be the best way to thank me...

Hm! A quick look at your plugin I thought that it would but I'm a newbie to all this coding malarkey. 

I want to display the UK Met Office text forecast on my site in a similar way to what you see here https://cl.ly/22b7f5 (Accordion!) but in what I have already setup here https://cl.ly/355b5b perhaps using shortcodes. I believe the UK Met Office already has an API for this but I'm unsure how to proceed. I thought this plugin could help simplify the process a little. 

Hope this helps with understanding what I want to do... maybe consider adding to your plugin...

Paul, did you understand my further explanation?

Hello Mark!

I don't know who is Paul, but I will try to answer 😋 

I understand very well what you want to achieve. As previously said, Weather Station doesn't do that natively. But you can do that by developing something by yourself. It doesn't sound too complex if you know where is their API...

It may be added to Weather Station in the future but I must be sure users will use it - I want to say, more than one user 😉 Do you know other weather enthusiasts who will use this sort of feature?

If you like Weather Station, please consider to make a review to help make it known. That would be the best way to thank me...

Oops, sorry I only glanced at your name. My bad. 

OK, it would be a great feature to include and yes I know many weather peeps that would use such a thing.
