Good weather can turn a good day into a great day. Bad weather can ruin plans. Weather affects our moods and choices more than we realise, so here are some ways to know the weather and have fun with it.
For some time now, weather apps have been trying to stand out from the crowd with a cool interface or adding a little humor. In fact, you should check out some of these cute weather apps that make the forecast entertaining.
Many of these weather apps rely on simple design choices, comparisons, or weather-based suggestions to add extra value. Oh, and this time, there’s an app to check air pollution too.
Breeze (Android, iOS): Fuss-free, Ad-free, Bloat-free
Breeze is likely to become the favorite weather app for many. It’s free, light, and pleasing to the eye, unlike most other free weather apps that are full of ads or have an old-school interface.
Breeze gets its data from Dark Sky, so you can rest assured of regular updates you can rely on. The main screen gives you today’s temperature, sky conditions and real weather forecast. You can also get the hourly forecast below, where you can check the chance of rain.
Scroll down for next week’s forecast, including possible precipitation. You can choose between three clean and minimalistic themes, and search for weather conditions for other locations as well.
Breeze tends to be a favorite for its fuss-free, ad-free, and bloat-free nature. If all you want is a simple and good-looking weather app that notifies you of today’s and this week’s forecasts, this is the app for you.

Fashion Frog (Android, iOS): Weather Based Fashion Suggestions
If you’ve ever regretted your choice of clothes after you left, you need Fashion Frog. This app gives you quick weather updates and then suggests the best thing to wear based on that.
Based on real temperatures—morning, afternoon, evening, and night, the app analyzes what the day will be like and builds a basic set of recommendations. For example, wearing loose or baggy clothing on a sunny day, and the type of jacket you should wear. Advice is different for men and women, of course.
You can follow the suggestions for today’s weather, or for the next two days, but you’ll have to change the day each time via the app’s settings. Fashion Frog is still in its early stages, but the makers plan to add two tabs for wardrobe inspiration and a place for you to get ideas based on what’s in your closet.

AirVisual (Web, Android, iOS): Check Air Quality in Your City
Temperature, wind and humidity aren’t the only factors you need to check. The air quality in cities can affect your health, even if you pass by for a few hours. It’s always best to check the air condition too, and AirVisual is probably the best app for that.
The Air Quality Index (AQI) is a number in color, with green being the safest and red being the most dangerous. It checks for several air pollutants such as ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide and particulate matter, and you can check the level of each one individually.
You can do daily checks of your city or even hour by hour checks. Plus, there are regular weather updates too, with temperature, sky conditions, humidity, pressure, and wind conditions.
The nice part about AirVisual is that it also gives you data about certain parts of the city, which is fun to plot on a map. You’d be surprised at how much air quality can change in different parts of the city, so this data is worth checking out.

Climate For Me (Web): Compare Climates of Several Cities
Are you thinking about moving to another city, or traveling for a few days, and trying to find the best location for you? Climate For Me lets you compare cities to find your sunny friend.
The web app may seem a little intimidating at first glance, but it’s not as difficult as it seems. Search multiple cities to add them side by side. Scroll down to the table to see yearly values for various weather metrics, as well as month to month.
Climate For Me maps the daily high, low, and average temperatures, the number of rainy days and how much rain, how often you will get clear or covered skies, the average hours of direct sunlight per day, and the average average how long is the day on average. Planning many cities next to each other, you will find the best climate for you.
Antiweather (Web): Weather on the Other Side of the Earth
You sweat in the scorching heat, or get pelted by heavy rain, or freeze in the cold wind. You think to yourself, “Dude, I bet it’s not so bad on the other side of the world.” Well, now you can check what it looks like exactly there.
Antiweather is a weather engine for knowing what it’s like at what is the opposite point of our globe. Enter the name of your city, and the app will find out the inverted latitude and longitude. And it will fetch the weather forecast for that place as well, even if it’s in the middle of the ocean.
There are several popular cities already given for comparison. For example, you can compare Rio De Janeiro and Tokyo, or Auckland and Seville. If you want to laugh, look at the extremes of the North and South poles. Antiweather will tell you the local time, real temperature and temperature, cloudiness, wind factor, humidity and sunrise and sunset times. Even if you don’t use it very often, it’s worth having a laugh.
