Contest Brief

Hello Freelancers, I am looking for the following solution:

The weather script need to generate an image of 1920x1200 I would like to use: [url removed, login to view]
I have a "very simple" weather design that you can view here:
[url removed, login to view]
The generated image needs to be automatic uploaded to s3 via the API. ([url removed, login to view])

The script needs to auto update the image each 2 hours.
IMPORTANT! that it needs to overwrite the older image. (So the URL keeps static)
It doesn't need to have a GUI for settings so it can be just a php where I can edit the settings.
Idea is to able to create multiple weather forecast either through duplicate the whole script or add new city and all the variables your recommendation.
Together we will select the best weather API dor this. (needs to cover european cities and able to use own weather icons like I believe MSN)

Variables design:
-background color
-bar color
-top bar color
-cityname

Variables script:
-cityname
-option to select degree Celsius or Fahrenheit.
[url removed, login to view] settings API
-set the s3 bucket folder path and image name.

I provide:
the design (all pixel dimensions)
all weather icons .png (transparant) format and allready in the right size.

      First the weather page needs to be created via a weather api online (such as MSN) according the design I post. (I have all the icons)
      Then there need to create a script to trigger the browshot to generate the image via their API. Will provide an API key with premium account so you are able to generate 1920x1200 images.
