mythweather: incomplete precipitation mgmt

Severity: medium Keywords: mythweather precipitation
Cc: Ticket locked: no


As of now, mythweather displays the probability of precipitation (pop) parameter as a percent value. This works fine using NWS and some other providers. However, other providers e.g. doesn't provide the pop value. Instead they provide the anticipated amount of precipitation (in mm) for a period. I think myth should be capable to display this value to the user if the pop value isn't available.

This affects the grabber interface. It's probably best to just let the grabber send either pop or precipitation, and let myth handle the situation.

If you want something like this, you will need to submit a patch. That said, I think it is a *very* bad idea to give back undefined/multiple different types of data for the same attribute-- If you want to add a new piece of info, that's fine, but it should not supplant or replace the existing one, that's just asking for trouble.
