Tap the + icon to add a location. You can have a maximum of 10 locations saved on your app. To reorder your locations tap the + icon then tap on the location, hold them on their right edge and drag them into a new position in the list. The weather for each location can be viewed in the overview, 5 day forecast and 3-hourly forecast by swiping.
The 'landing' screen provides the forecast summary for the day (sunrise to sunset) or night (sunset to sunrise). This screen does not show the 'current' weather. During the day the highest temperature expected for your location is displayed. During the night the lowest temperature expected is displayed.
On the five day view, tap a day to view the three hourly forecast. You can also tap on the arrow to view more details for the day or three hour period you are interested in.
To view the UK or regional text based forecast tap on the bar at the top of the map screen.
At the top of the screen you will see the green Met Office warning icons. If warnings are in force in your selected region, the relevant icon will change colour to alert you. The colour will reflect the severity of the warning - green reflects no warnings are in place. Clicking on the banner will take you to the map view showing the areas affected. Click on the text icon to view the details of the warning. If the warning icons are grey warnings data could not be loaded and is not accurate.
You can change the units used to display the temperature and wind speed. Tap the 'info' icon and then 'settings' to make your preferences.
Feels like temperature takes into account wind speed to give a more representative indication of how the temperature will feel.
This provides you with the percentage chance of precipitation (rain, snow, drizzle, etc.) during the given period.
You can zoom in and scroll across the map to view more detailed regional information.
