Forecast.io Gives You Useful Animated Weather Reports For Your Location

Forecast.io is a well-designed, good-looking weather site that puts all of the most relevant and useful information you need right in front of you. It shows you your location, the current conditions, the forecast for the next day or so, and an animated globe to show you weather you need an umbrella.

Forecast.io keeps the layout simple so you can load the page, glance at the current conditions and forecast for the next hour, 24 hours or week, and get on with your day. Click play on the animated globe to see cloud cover and chance of rain over your location play out over the next week.

If you're hungry for more details, scroll down to the day-by-day forecast to see daily highs and lows, along with the forecast conditions for each day. Click the plus sign next to any day to see hour-by-hour temperatures, highs and lows (and the hours when they'll occur) and chance of precipitation.

If Forecast.io looks familiar, it's because it was built by the same folks who made Dark Sky. If you love poring through lots of data and maps, Forecast.io may not thrill you (but Weather Underground, our favourite weather site, will). Even so, Forecast.io has a lot to offer weather fans and people who just want to know how to pack for a trip or whether they should grab the umbrella on the way out the door. Hit the link below to give it a try.
