NAME

       weatherrc - configuration file format for the weather(1) utility

DESCRIPTION

       The  weatherrc  file  format  is intended to specify a set of macros by
       which to group a METAR station ID for current conditions  data  with  a
       city/state   combination   for  a  forecast,  but  many  of  the  other
       command-line options and flags for the weather utility can be specified
       as  well. The file is organized as an INI-format config, with the alias
       name in  []  brackets  and  the  associated  parameter/value  pairs  on
       following  lines.  Parameters  and  their values as separated by = or :
       characters.  Multi-word values do not need quoting.
