Hi

if you check event logs for WEATHER_ICON attribute, you can see its values - see fir. If you set those vlaues in the rule creator, it shoudl work.

ICON attribute is not used by Yahoo - there is no event in logs.

yahoo weather codes are beyond of Zipato scope so please check it by yourself - here is a link where you could check them - https://gist.github.com/Kepro/9ea2a918fd6f0a58b474
