Firefox Weather Forecasting

Firefox Weather Forecasting

If you are a Firefox user, then there is an excelent extension that gives you the current and next-day forecasts along with all weather alerts. This all shows up in either the status-bar or the menu-bar of the browser. This means you can check the weather no matter what site you are on. It uses to get its data.

In my area (U.S. CT) I would give it a roughly 95% accuracy rate. Compared to the national weather channel, this is much more accurate. Sometimes it is even more accurate than my local news channel.

Barry's Response That's a good one, I've never heard of it. Browser extensions add features to your browser. Forecastfox gives you weather forecasts on demand.

It gives you the current weather and forecast in a toolbar, sidebar, or menu bar. Weather icons are easy to understand, and you can see weather details by hovering over them.

Firefox without Flair
by: Turkey

Firefox already has a way to load extensions onto its browser. This site does not add anything that Firefox has not already provided and is extremely lacking in any other useful information.

From Barry - Users can find extensions provided by Firefox quickly without having to search the web. Also, it has ratings and reviews from other users to help you decide. When choosing an extension, Firefox users can make informed decisions. Commendable.

That is very interesting. I never heard of that before. I never would of guest that Firefox would have a forecast fox. Very interesting and I guess you learn something new everyday. I'm going to look into it.

From Barry - Possibly fun as well...Don't be afraid to ask questions and take part in the learning process. It's important to be open to new ideas and perspectives. You can grow and challenge yourself by learning something new.

This is very interesting because I often have wished I had a quick and easy way to check weather. I can use it on my work computer - I think the supervisors must already have it because although they don't alert us underlings, they sneak out the door at the first hint of bad weather.

I've explored this site and am looking forward to checking more of it out. This whole website is great, very interesting and educational. The links load quickly and I keep thinking it should be used in the school system when the students study weather. I'd like to see some worksheets that could be printed out and given to students.

From Barry - A browser extension's a great way to stay on top. Also, it's a good way to know when to get some fresh air. Plus, you'll be the first to know the weather.

I tried to make it easy to navigate and find what you're looking for on the website with content that is well-structured and organized, so it's easy to understand. In general, is to be a great source of meteorological principles, more-so than current weather information.
