you DONT need the text to speech to make it work, the api should return the variables to RB and the text to speech thing just inserts the variables into your text and then reads it. i dont think you want to put in the state, just the nearest city and "us". here is my schedule entry as an example "weather new port richey, us", then my text to speech is "TTS=-2;hello. The temperature right now in Port Richey florida is ?temp_f degrees, the humidity is ?humidity percent. the winned speed is ?wind_speed_m miles an hour. Conditions, ?wind_name. have a lovely day. this is rettrow radio." The variables are the bits with the ? be careful with the underscores, notice also i had to use the word "winned" to correctly say "wind" otherwise it says it as "wynd" as in to "wind up a clock".
Hope that helps.

sorry, i dont have the time/energy to be making videos, i am not the developer/manufacturer, just a user, follow the instructions step by step above and it will work
if you tell me your city and country and what you want the announcement to say i will try to give you the source materials.

Starting event "weather monroe, ny us"
Command "weather monroe, ny us"
Weather command skipped: rate limitation.

then i tried again got this but no weather forecast

Starting event "weather monroe, ny us"
Command "weather monroe, ny us"
