View Full Screen Weather Report in Google Chrome
Although there are several weather reporting websites, but most of them present the weather data in a boring and hard to follow manner. What if there was a tool that could present current weather conditions with the ease of Google Maps? The Full Screen Weather extension for Google Chrome does exactly just that. It combines the ease and convenience of Google Maps with the data from Weather Undergrounds site to present you the weather conditions in an interactive way.
The Full Screen Weather extension for the Google Chrome browser is the ultimate weather tracking tool. It enables anyone in the world to quickly zoom in on the Google Maps interface to view the most granular data available from Weather Undergroundís unmatched network of over twenty thousands personal weather stations before zooming out and scrolling across the world to view the weather conditions affecting your friends and family.
You can visit the Full Screen Weather extension page in the Google Chrome webstore and click on the Add to Chrome button to install it in your Chrome browser. You must have to login using with your Google account before you can install this extension. After it is installed, you can open a new tab in Google Chrome by pressing the key combination Ctrl + T. In the new tab page, you can click on the Full Screen Weather icon to launch it.
This would take you to the Weather Undergrounds website. This site would ask your permission to track your physical location using the GeoLocation feature of your web browser. You can give this permission to automatically locate your current location, or you can just type in the place name (city, state, country name), longitude/latitude or ZIP code in the search box to manually locate a place.
As soon as you allow the physical location tracking, or you lookup a location, it would show a Google map superimposed with temperature data from different sources. In the left side would be a box showing the basic weather report like temperature, wind, visibility, wind, precipitation etc. This would also include basic weather forecast for today and next three days. If there are any alerts issued for this area, then those alerts would also be shown in red box at the bottom.
You would see a settings bar at the top of the map. From this settings bar, you can select and view a high-resolution precipitation layer (Radar) or cloud layer (Satellite) plotted on the map - both of which can be animated. You can also choose the settings to display metric or English units, weather station options (to display temperature, temperature and wind, humidity and precipitation) and various radar and satellite options.
The Full Screen Weather extension is more of a shortcut to the Weather Underground website rather than an extension for the Google Chrome browser. No surprise that it is not listed in the extensions list of the browser. Not to mention that it has no settings. Still, it is a splendid way to monitor weather conditions for any place across the world. You can not only view the latest weather report (updates every few minutes) for a place, but also view weather alerts, realtime satellite data and more. So if you want to view full screen weather report in your browser, then you can download and install Full Screen Weather extension from https://chrome.google.com/.
