RokWeather - Powerful Real Time Weather Reporting
RokWeather, as the name suggests, is an Ajax-powered weather module which utilizes the Google API allowing you to easily display weather data and related information from regions all across the globe.
RokWeather includes options to display temperature, climate, wind speed as well as allowing the location to be configured from the frontend by the users of your site for more personalized weather information making RokWeather a perfect addition to any site.
NOTICE: In order for RokWeather to work, you need to install the RokModule component which facilitates the AJAX used in the module. You can download it from the Extensions section in RokDownload.
Also, if you experience the Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() error then you need to have CURL enabled on your server. You can ask your hosting provider to activate this.
