What's the trick with National Weather Service (NWS) forecast?

i installed National Weather Service (NWS) from Integration.
when I add the forecast card, this is what I see:

type: weather-forecast
entity: weather.kphl_daynight

pretty useless. how to change it to days such as today, friday, saturday, sunday?

This is what I have.

type: weather-forecast
entity: weather.kpwt_daynight
show_forecast: true
name: National Weather Service


thanks for the code. i just tried and still not getting the day. i only see the hours as seen here:

You could try the Weather Card custom card.

  - current: true
    details: true
    entity: weather.ksat_daynight
    forecast: true
    hourly_forecast: false
    number_of_forecasts: '5'
    type: 'custom:weather-card'


It’s an animated icon in the top left and the card is available on HACS.

What version of home assistant are you using? The weather card was only recently updated to show the day name rather than the time in this case.

Well, I looked at that card…and…I like it.

i just updated HA n it works great as you showed me.
im always scared of updating cause something might break. lol

That looks great! I’m not having much luck finding detailed installation instructions. I did find a couple of links, but it appears things have changed over the years and I’m not sure which instructions still apply. Any suggestions?

iirc, I added the repository to HACS and installed it that way. I also chose the self-hosted option for the js module.

Wow, what a struggle! The documentation for the animated custom weather card is pretty hard to follow for a beginner, and parts of it are obsolete. Since I had made notes of all the things I tried anyway, I decided to share what I’d learned. Maybe someone else who’s not an HA guru will want to take the same path someday. Instead of clogging up this thread, I started a new one in the Share Your Projects category:
