Thursday

<![CDATA[
Rain showers in the morning becoming a steady light rain in the afternoon. High 56F. Winds SSW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 90%.
]]>

<![CDATA[
Light rain early. Decreasing clouds late. Low 7C. Winds SSW at 15 to 30 kph. Chance of rain 70%.
]]>

All temperatures in fcttext_metric are mentioned as Low and the text it self differs. I have shown a example in english. Normally I make the call with lang:DK, but same problem.

Same problem here (lang:SW). Looks like the night forecast do match but fcttext_metric uses same text for both period 0 and 1.
This bug first appeared for me when the grade symbol was added to the fcttext_metric field.

As from now it seems that fcttext_metric works again. But it seems that icon_url can ́t show night icons. The nt_prefix is missing.

There is an another bug in fctext metric
There is a difference beetween the forecast in celsius and the forecast in fahrenheit

In the fahrenheit it's always the max temp. In the celsius, sometimes it's min sometimes. This is in french language (max it's in the period 0 on morning and afternoon, evening u will have the min in celsius and max in fahrenheight
Ciel plutôt dégagé. Maximales : 67 oF. Vents SE soufflant de 5 à 10 mi/h.]]>

I have this problem too. They just need to convert the numbers. I do not know why the words are different.
