    For currency, you might try

    https://www.wellsfargo.com/foreign-e...urrency-rates/

    as to weather, that is trickier as to location and type of information you are seeking.

    The currency site is really great, thank you very very much. I appreciate the help. About the weather, location is not important, pick any city in the world and for let say the next week or 2. I tried the weather network but it does not show any table. The funny thing, if I used Power Query of Power BI then the weather network will show all the tables but when I used Excel Power Query, I do not see the same tables (same link). So Power BI Power Query is different from Excel Power Query. Thank you once again.

    Here is a site that opens with tables

    https://opensnow.com/location/steamboat

    Of course, it is for where I live. Not sure if it will work for all locations as it is geared to forecast snowfalls (important in ski country!)
