Author's NotesDetailed 24-hour weather forecast in a 4x1 widget


Aix is a pure homescreen app widget that shows temperature, maximum/minimum precipitation and sun rise/set times graphically to give you a compact and accurate forecast.

Weather data is taken from Norwegian Meteorological Institute and NOAA National Weather Service. Data will be most accurate for Europe and the US.

Please check out the introduction by either opening the app from the market, or by using the menu key while on the Aix configuration screen. If you have any issues with the widget, please email me so I can help you.

This widget is designed to work in a portrait 4x1 format.

From MET data provider regarding recent change:

"The weather forecasts on Yr for large parts of northern Europe was until the 14th of December based on an old weather forecast model called Hirlam 8 km. This model is now discontinued. It has been replaced by the ECMWF model. Unfortunately this means that we can no longer provide short term forecasts with hourly resolution for the UK on Yr. The temporal resolution is now 3 hourly.

We are working on providing a global forecast with hourly resolution and hope we can roll out this update in the not too distant future."
