Is there a way to adjust the background image depending on the prediction? So in bad weather a picture with clouds, or in fair weather a picture with a blue sky? Where is the prediction information in CumulusMX?

Yes you could do this - *if* you use Cumulus to generate the forecast. You need to look at the web tags available from Cumulus - http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/Webtags

If you use the station forecast then you would have to perform parsing of the forecast text to determine the image to use.

The forecast tag from Cumulus is a numeric tag, you could create a set of images that incorporate this number and use that to determine which image is displayed. I am sure other people have already done this, so try a search of the forum (probably using Google is best).

Read this viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1657 for inspiration - you may decide to use a forecast icon rather than change the background image - there is a link to some icons produced by a member towards the end.

... else do search ;)
