  • Go to http://www.weatherlet.com and type your city name in the search box. Weather conditions for this city will be shown. Check if it's the location that you need.
  • Open source code of the weather conditions page (Firefox: CTRL+U, IE: Right-click on page > View Source).
  • Around line 150 of the source code, find line that looks like this:

    <param name="movie" value="http://www.weatherlet.com/weather.swf?locid=XXXXXXXX&unit=s" />

In this line, the XXXXXXXX is city code that you are looking for. Copy this code in the widget parameters to get weather conditions for your location.
