This weather widget (and interactive app) provides a detailed and visually appealing weather forecast, allowing you very quickly to understand what to expect when you venture outdoors.
The graphical format is commonly referred to as a ‘meteogram’.
The meteogram is very customisable, with over 400 individual settings… your imagination is the limit! For just a few real examples from actual users, see https://trello.com/b/ST1CuBEm.
Plus, you can even display a tide chart, or plots of wave height and direction, or plots of sun or moon elevation or azimuth!
Note: if the meteogram doesn’t appear correctly in the widget, please try it on a well-behaved launcher like Nova Launcher and see if it looks any better.

(available features depend to some extent on chosen provider)
The app provides a (near) full-screen meteogram, and is interactive. Clicking on any time point will open a pop-up with more detailed information about the weather at that time point.
You can place a resizable meteogram directly onto your device’s home screen. The meteogram is updated in the background to keep the forecast up to date. This provides an immediate and convenient view of the weather ahead.
But the full-screen interactive app is just a single click away, direct from the widget.
The widget is initially placed as a 4×2 widget, but thereafter can be dragged to any size you like! The widget features resize intelligently to provide a clear representation, no matter what size is chosen, even showing in landscape format if you wish.
With notifications enabled, for Lollipop (or later) devices you even get a meteogram direct on your lockscreen!

- new options to set the “z index” of each line, and of the weather symbols. These control the order in which the features are plotted, and therefore which features obscure others below them. Set the z index higher to move the feature upwards.
- have clarified variable axis scaling (using padding settings) vs fixed axis scaling (using min/max settings) by providing an explicit “axis scale” option for each data series
- fixed laggy response in field for specifying hours to display
