New Weather information

The latest version comes with much new weather information. So, you can now enhance your weather update and make it more informative.

Rain chance

Needless to say, rain is a very common element of weather. It largely impacts many businesses, agriculture, sports, and more. So, now you can display rain probability on your weather live to help your visitors plan apropos.  

Dew point

The dew point is the atmospheric temperature (varying according to pressure and humidity) level below which water vapors in the air begin to condense into visible water droplets, dew, and fog.

For example, if the air temperature is 21.1 degrees Celsius and the dew point is 15.6 degrees Celsius, the air is 10% saturated with water vapor. If the air is cooled to 15.6 degrees Celsius, the air vapors will form dews.

A higher dew point denotes that the air is more humid. It means more water vapor is in the air, making it feel muggy and uncomfortable outside. A lower dew point denotes that the air is drier. This means there is less water vapor in the air, making it feel cooler and more comfortable outside.

Moreover, it helps you make driving decisions timely.

Now, you can easily display the dew point on your weather live with the best weather plugin, Location Weather. 

Location-based precipitation units

Precipitation refers to any form of liquid or solid water that falls from the atmosphere to the ground. It includes rain, drizzle, sleet, snow, ice pellets, graupel and hail. 

However, now you can display the rain precipitation in location-based most common units.  

Weather forecast title

You can edit the weather forecast title on your way, such as 7-day forecast, Weather forecast, and so on.  

The weather attribute to OpenWeatherMap

The attribute shows that weather data comes from a reliable source, OpenWeatherMap. It also means the authenticity of the weather information. Now, you can add the attribute at the bottom of your weather live and forecast with a single click.
