There is something that makes sense about seeing the weather forecast displayed on a big map, which may be related to the fact that we are all used to seeing forecasts superimposed on big maps on TV.
In any case, Full Screen Weather is a free service that will display a detailed map with annotated weather information pulled from the ‘Weather Underground’ website.
It also displays a 4 day forecast, weather alerts, and other relevant information. You can also get this service on your Android or iOS device via free apps.
This service is fairly self explanatory; it will autodetect your location or offer you the option to search for the location you seek.
iOS and Android: apps are available. See the screenshot to the right.
The verdict: really nice. Check it out for yourself. You could either use ‘Full Screen Weather’ as:
- A web servicefor any browser
- Install as a Chrome App
- Install the ‘Weather Underground’ Android app and iPhone/iPad app (which are from the same developers and the do the same thing).
