While Gismeteo is a Russian-based weather service, their Chrome extension and even their website offers English weather updates, so any English-speaking users can use them. The toolbar icon of Gismeteo shows the current weather with a temperature value. The icon changes with the weather update, so you can just glance on it to know what the weather is without having to click on the extension button. In addition, you can also change it to display a forecast for the nearest time.

Meanwhile, clicking on the toolbar icon will show you a more detailed information on the current weather, as well as a weather forecast for the following day. The weather forecast is further divided into night, morning, day, and evening. There are also links to Gismeteo’s website for further weather forecast for 3 days, 7 days, and even up to 2 weeks.

Furthermore, there are also options for changing the appearance of the weather forecast window, add locations, and set the update interval in the extension’s settings page.

    You are actually recommending an app on the basis it is “handy”? In weather forecasting “accurate” trumps “handy” !

    You wrote “There are also links to Gismeteo’s website for further weather forecast for 3 days, 7 days, and even up to 2 weeks.” Weather forecasts are great for 2 days ahead, give some guidance to 5 days ahead, but 2 weeks ahead? That’s guesswork.

    It is useless apps for out of country weather forecasts that confuse the public and have them saying “Oh, the weather forecast said sunny, and it’s raining” and then they public blame the local provider.

    You need a forecast from a provider that knows if your area is up a hill, on the coast, limestone or clay, etc. So a local forecaster is better placed to give you a better forecast. If all you want is to see sunny icons on your desktop, change your background. :-)
