Works fine – for a few days 🙁

It’s a nice plugin and it works – at least for a few days. Then the weather information disappears and the plugin shows “NO WEATHER INFORMATION AVAILABLE” – that’s it. No answer from support if s.o. asks about this issue – nothing! Can’t recommend this plugin.

Brilliant! Beautiful and displays Farenheit for US, etc!

This plugin looks great with about 9 different theme options (all are responsive) and it’s extremely easy to setup. BEST OF ALL … you can choose Celsius or Fahrenheit depending on your country – without paying for a pro version like other weather plugins!!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
