The developer just posted this: It's great to see that Meteorologist still has so many faithful users, particularly since Meteo hasn't had a release in nearly 2.5 years. I will do my best to release a new version of Meteo in the coming days/weeks, although I'm currently traveling for business. I noticed that a few other people have offered to help patch the code, and I would welcome those patches! Thanks, Joe -- Whew! I have no problems waiting knowing a fix is in progress-

I have used this app for years. I've learned that set one locality in Preferences/Locations and leave it alone. If you screw around with locations 9999 is your reward. Love this app!

You were right, I fully deleted and reinstalled it, and now it’s working again. Thanks.

It seems I spoke too soon. After reinstalling the app it worked fine until I shut down the computer, then upon restart it displayed 9999 again. However, it turns out that the problem was the <here> location designation all along. When I changed that to my actual city name, it worked fine. Go figure.

This version is only 6 days old, and already it’s useless. "9999°" is displayed for each and every weather data provider, including Yahoo. I’ve been using Meteo for over a decade, but for too long now it has been a joke.

Since last Two Updates every Half Hour it shows 9999 Degrees Temperature and only Yahoo Weather works, all other Weather, Weather.com, Weather Underground etc. do not work at all. Before it was working great.

This software used to be good. Now it works for a day or two, and then displays 9999° and doesn't know what city you are in. I'll go in and change to a different server and get the same thing. I had it set for Yahoo! and it still did 9999°. I'm running OS X 10.11.6 on an early 2009 iMac.

Sorry, but it does work on Mojave.
You should look at the forum to get some help.

This software has literally become useless. Even with this newest version (3.1.7), it still displays the dreaded 9999. I was willing to give it one more chance with this latest update, but have now officially given up on this software and switched to WeatherMan permanently, which BTW, works perfectly.

Same thing here. I was using this and WeatherMan for a while because they gave slightly different readings, and I wanted to see which one was correct more often. But then this would work for a while and give the 9999 display. So I'm on WeatherMan, but I like the graphics better on this one.

New version (3.1.7) is out and they provide a 'current location' feature. Excellent!
