Desktop Clock



There are three displays: current, daily, and hourly. The current display shows the current weather, temperature, time, high, low, wind, rain, humidity, UV index, and more. It also shows the last updated time and the coordinates. You can always refresh the page to update the weather. Click the pencil icon to edit the location used, which should default to and can easily be set to your current location. Click on the unit (F or C) to change units. The current section is the primary display. The daily and hourly sections are the secondary displays. The daily display shows the expected weather in your chosen location for each future day for seven days, and also shows the high and low. The hourly view gives much more detailed information, and you can customize the number of days shown in the hourly view in settings, up to 6 days (144 hours).

Change Units

You can change units by clicking the temperature unit in the primary display (F or C) or go to settings and under Units click on your desired unit. Metric units will use C for temperatures, mm for rain, and km/h for wind. Imperial units will use F for temperatures, in for rain, and mph for wind.

What is the difference between temperature and feels like temperature?

The temperature is the actual measurement of the air, while the 'feels like' temperature takes into account factors like humidity and wind, providing a more accurate perception of how the weather feels.

What is humidity?

Humidity is the amount of water vapor present in the air. It is often expressed as a percentage and plays a crucial role in influencing weather conditions and human comfort.

What is UV index?

The UV index measures the strength of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. It provides information about the potential harm to the skin and helps people take precautions to avoid overexposure.

How is rainfall measured?

Rainfall is typically measured using a rain gauge, a device designed to collect and measure the amount of precipitation that falls over a specific period, usually in millimeters or inches.

How is rain predicted?

Rain prediction involves the use of weather models, satellite data, and ground-based observations to forecast atmospheric conditions. Meteorologists analyze these factors to predict the likelihood and intensity of rainfall in a particular area.

How is wind speed predicted?

Wind speed prediction relies on various tools such as anemometers, weather balloons, and computer models. These instruments measure and analyze atmospheric conditions to forecast the speed and direction of the wind.

What wind speed is considered fast/dangerous?

Wind speeds are categorized into different levels, and what is considered fast or dangerous depends on the scale used. Generally, sustained winds above 40 mph (64 km/h) are considered strong, while those exceeding 74 mph (119 km/h) can be classified as hurricane-force winds.

How does weather influence mood and well-being?

Weather holds a profound sway over our emotions and well-being. Sunlight is known to boost mood and energy levels, while gloomy days can sometimes evoke a sense of calm. Understanding these connections allows individuals to adapt their routines and self-care practices based on the weather forecast.

How does weather forecasting work?

Weather forecasting relies on a sophisticated blend of meteorological instruments, satellite data, and computer models. Meteorologists analyze atmospheric conditions, temperature patterns, and pressure systems to make predictions. Advances in technology continue to refine the accuracy and reliability of weather forecasts.

What are the most extreme climates in the world?

The world is home to diverse and extreme climates, showcasing nature's remarkable variability. The Atacama Desert in Chile stands as one of the driest places, receiving minimal rainfall, while Antarctica's McMurdo Dry Valleys present an icy, cold desert landscape. Death Valley in the USA holds the record for the highest reliably reported air temperature on Earth, reaching a scorching 134°F (56.7°C). The Sahara Desert in Africa, with its vast arid landscapes, experiences extremely high temperatures during the day. Verkhoyansk in Russia is among the coldest inhabited places, facing winter temperatures below -50°C (-58°F). The Lut Desert in Iran recorded one of the highest ground temperatures ever measured, reaching 159.3°F (70.7°C). Mawson Station in Antarctica battles harsh polar conditions, while Denali in Alaska faces extreme mountain weather with freezing temperatures, high winds, and frequent storms. These examples illustrate the extremes of heat, cold, and aridity found across our planet.

What is the hottest temperature recorded on earth?

The hottest temperature recorded on Earth occurred in Furnace Creek Ranch (Death Valley), California, USA, on July 10, 1913. The temperature reached a scorching 134°F (56.7°C).

What is the coldest temperature recorded on earth?

The coldest temperature recorded on Earth was at the Soviet Union's Vostok Station in Antarctica. On July 21, 1983, the temperature dropped to an extremely frigid -128.6°F (-89.2°C).
