    In addition, you could also parse METAR reports from your local airport. If you want another user-friendly thing, there’s also rainmaker.wunderground.com, but it does not seem to work.

      While this is more informative, I do find it harder to read, especially on first glance.

      Also, I’m wondering if some Unicode weather symbols could be used here to maximize the information one can take away at first glance.

        Nice! I love this stuff.

          @jcs is this something you’re willing to consider?
