Weather forecasts let us stay up-to-date with the present and future weather conditions, so we can plan our trips and other activities accordingly, but browsing websites over and over again for forecasts can be a difficult and cumbersome task. Weather Aware, a Chrome extension, helps you stay in touch with the current and upcoming weather forecasts by displaying them in a compact and customizable pop-up right in your browser. The extension displays detailed forecast per hour, customizable display units and interface localization. Forecasts can be viewed in multiple views, such as Today/Tomorrow, Meteogram, Weekend and Long term forecasts. Another great feature is the display of current temperature on the Weather Aware button. The weather reports come from yr.no, and are delivered by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.
Once the extension has been installed, you can click the Weather Aware button to check weather forecasts. The pop-up comes with four main tabs, Meteogram, Today/Tomorrow, Weekend and Long Term. A Meteogram for the next 48 hours is displayed with parameters such as Temperature, Cloud cover, Pressure and more.
The Today/Tomorrow, Weekend and Long Term categories display the Date, Time, Temperature, Wind, Precipitation and Pressure parameters. The Long Term category displays weather forecasts for next 8 days.
Weather Aware Options allow you to set a location, where you can simply enter the name of the city and choose one from the drop down menu. The Display Options let you set the Time Format, Date Format, Temperature, Wind, Precipitation and Pressure units. Furthermore, you can enable the Round decimal values option, change the icons and language. Once done, click Save, and stay up-to-date with the latest weather conditions.
Weather Aware is a simple and user-friendly extension which can particularly be useful for people who regularly plan trips and outings.
