4 Ways to Check Weather Forecast Using the Power of Internet
Gone are the days when you had to wait for the morning newspaper to know the previous day’s temperature. You’ve got the internet’s power; who needs stale news now, right?
But then, not every internet information (including weather-related information) can be trusted. So, we decided to do some digging and came up with 4 ways to check weather forecast or current conditions. All these ways use the world wide web to get the information, though not all are websites. Check them out.
1. Use Google, Your Best Friend Online
The easiest way to check your city’s current temperature is through Google. Simply search for “current temperature” followed by the name of the desired city. Alternatively, you can type “weather in [city name]” to get the current weather for that location.
Google will display the current temperature of a city along with its forecast for the next 4 days. For a detailed forecast, click on the links of the online services sourced by Google, provided below the forecast.
2. Use Online Services
If you need a weather report, there are online services like AccuWeather and The Weather Channel. But for an engaging summary, try Swackett.
The humdrum pages of online weather services become colorful and interactive.
Planning to use a browser? Why not use Forecastfox, an amazing extension for Firefox and Chrome that delivers real-time weather updates from AccuWeather.com.
A weather forecast for seven days is available, complete with satellite imagery. The extension can be customized to suit your preferences.
4. Your Desktop Gadgets
An on-screen gadget is a great option for getting real-time weather updates. Windows 7 provides a default gadget you can use to get the details on your desktop (and so does OS X Lion on Mac). If you want eye candy ways to get gadget information, try xWidgets and Rainmeter.
The final decision rests on you as to which one you are going to use. I personally like the browser extension as it provides real-time updates and most of the time I am on the browser while working on computer. Don’t forget to tell us which one you’ll favor.
