Thanks for installing Weather Extension! Here are some of the frequently asked questions I get for my Weather(Chrome | Firefox | Opera | Edge) extension. Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions.

Using a dark browser theme?

Try turning on the “Light Badge” option.

What do the % values represent?

The blue percent values represent the chance of precipitation (rain or snow) for the hour or day.

What do the weather icons represent?

Here are all the icons used in Weather Extension: Clear Day, Clear Night, Partly Cloudy Day, Partly Cloudy Night, Cloudy, Rain, Sleet, Snow, Wind, and Fog. 

My taskbar temperature does not always match the drop-down temperature

This happens when you have the “Feels Like Badge” option enabled. This setting shows the feels like temperature in the browser taskbar but the weather window will show the regular temperature.

How do I leave a review?

The process to leave a review in Chrome can be confusing. Here are some steps:

Go to Chrome Store and click Write A Review.

Then click on the stars, type your review, and click Publish.

This is caused by a browser setting that clear all browser data when the browser is closed. To prevent this, you can disable this feature or add an exclusion for extensions that prevent the clearing of extension data.
