Us Brits have a reputation for talking about (moaning about) our weather – hot, cold, wet or dry the current weather is always of interest. For that reason I’ve been wanting to add a weather forecast to my local sites – it could be one way of building a returning readership.
I’ve found a great wordpress plugin that does the job pretty well – it’s called wp-forecast and it uses Accuweather for the data. I’ve used the accuweather plugin for firefox for a couple of years now and the forecasts are usually pretty good. The wp-forecast plugin is easy to configure and you can even tinker with the CSS if you feel inclined (I haven’t yet).
You can see the plugin in action on my work-in-progress site about West Kirby, Wirral.
If you know of a better weather plugin for wordpress let me know.
