Re: [Design][Weather] Weather key journeys


Small detail: the degree sign should be °, not '.

With regards to comparing yesterday and today (or tomorrow if you consider forecast over several days), a side by side comparison would work better, possibly with the ability to swipe through it.

BBC Weather shows this in a very simple but effective form on their home page: http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/

Their graphics for wind speed and direction is also very easy to understand and impossible to get wrong: the issue when you just say "SW 5km/h" is that people often wonder: is it blowing *from* the Southwest or *towards* the Southwest?

Now for the nice to have features:

Another thing I like on the BBC web site is the fact that they show maximum and minimum temperatures.

Wind chill factor would be very useful to have too (probably more important in the UK than in Sydney).

Severe weather warning indicator would be cool too!
