Example of Weather Widget

I usually check a weather website everyday before going out - but I have to confess I like my desktop widget the best. This site reads like a college level textbook on weather - all the info I don't want to know but have to read in order to fill out the study question.

It is nice to learn about different things - but this page is just a bit to dry for me. I would do it in more of a 'weather for dummies' format. I suppose even adults want big pictures and flashing words and tutorials.

If I had the time and the serious interest - beyond planning a family trip which is coming up to Canada - then I might enjoy this site. But it is boring and it still didn't tell me what the current temperature is. So I'm left scratching my head. Huh?

Isn't a weather site supposed to tell you what the current weather is? I likely won't use this site again because I can go to a Canadian news site and look up easier to read info. I might have come back here for the long term forecast info but I hate having to click on links that lead me to other pages with more pages and links I have to click on.

I guess I'm lazy. I hate having to do any work to get the info I want.

Barry's Response - Right you are, Sara. The whole Stuff in the Air website is primarily a research resource, aimed at (typically) a junior-high school student who needs background information for an assignment.

There are plenty of operational forecasting sites around and you can find links to many of them on these pages. They provide current information easily found using search engines and widgets (and broadcast media.) Just type something like this into Google "weather name of city".

Search this site for more information now.

I agree. I just want to know the temperature and if it is going to rain/show. I also appreciate a 5 day forecast. I added a weather section to my yahoo homepage and just look at that. Sometimes I use my widgets.

Great Article.

Its a great article on the global warming. It is very much interesting. I would like to write about advancement of natural facts. I would like to find the live weather information on the website.
