Customize the Outlook Weather Forecast

An Outlook tutorial by Peter Kalmstrom

Outlook iconThe calendar weather forecast is a new feature in Outlook 2013. By default it shows the weather in New York, and the Fahrenheit temperature scale is used.

The setting does not follow the local settings of your operating system, so you have to customize it yourself to get the forecast – or forecasts – you are interested in.
In the demo below Peter Kalmstrom shows how to do it.

Change or add location

and switch between them to see the weather forecast for several places.

Write in a name and click on the magnifying glass to get a list of possible locations. Select the one you want, and you will get the local weather for that place.

Add more locations if you so wish.
