Thanks.I know this list.

I use yahoo weather api to build an app for notification in iPhone.

I record the api data everyday and I found an interesting thing.

Some weather conditions' description are different with the api list.

Such as today's weather description is : Thunderstorms Late

But in http://developer.yahoo.com/weather/ you couldn't find "Thunderstorms Late".

Because I should translate the weather description to Chinese so I need all conditions' description.

Besides,current condition's description are also can't be found in the api list.

I doubt that is there another api list of Yahoo weather?

Can anyone please tell me how can i retrieve the image of the respective condition code?? Like if the code is 20, then i know it's foggy, but is there any way to get the image of "foggy" condition.

Yes- http://l.yimg.com/a/i/us/we/52/##.gif

Where ## is the number of the condition. For example if the current condition is drizzle (9). Then the correct image is http://l.yimg.com/a/i/us/we/52/9.gif

FYI, current weather condition in Manchester is 'Scattered Showers' with a code of 39 which, when you look up on their table of weather conditions says 'Scattered Thunderstorms'

I think Yahoo has changed their condition codes again.
And these changes are still undocumented AFAIK.
See the following screenshots.

2018-01-09 16 15 07
2018-01-09 16 15 28

Localization on such a mutable list seems to be painful. :-/
