I just made the following simple experiment: created a weather icon using Meteor Weather Icons set and set it up to show "Tomorrow's weather". And for some unexplainable reason it shows a cresent particlaly covered by a cloud.

Why does it work that way?

AFAIK, weather icons that contain nighttime elements (like cresent) are supposed to be used by entries that show "Current Weather" during night hours only. Entries, which are set up to show weather for the entire day (like "Today's Weather", "Tomorrow's Weather", "2 Days Weather" and so on), are supposed to use generic weather icons only, independent from time of day (i.e. they shall never use nightime icons).

So, is it is bug in Zooper or is it a bug induced by a bad data from weather provider? And even if it is bad data from weather provider, why doesn't Zooper catch the error and filter it out on its side?

Its just how the config for the iconset is written.

I've already contacted the developer for this reason.
The response was basically that this is how it should work...
Now I feel retarded...
Having zooper widget on your phone seemed like a good idea, it had so much potential, but now nothing happens and we're stuck with some things that make no sense.
It still has a ton of potential, but what's the point.

Weather for the entire day
I have the same problem, I want entries which are set up to show weather for the entire day (like "Today's Weather", "Tomorrow's Weather", "2 Days Weather" and so on) use daily weather icons only, but that's not the way ZW works.
So I've renamed all night icons in my config file to their daily equivalents. The iconset is recognized and works, most of the time. But sometimes, after the widget updates, some icons dissapear (eg. tommorow's weather and 3 days weather), and some are still there. What to do? Here are original and my own iconsets
