Want a quick and simple way to monitor the weather for your location in Google Chrome? See how easy it can be as we take a look at the Weather Forecast extension.

Add Weather Forecast to Chrome

During installation you will be asked to confirm that you want to add the extension to Chrome…click “Install” to finish the process.

Once the extension is installed you will see your new “Weather Forecast Toolbar Button” and a short extension management message. Notice that at the moment the “Toolbar Button” only displays “question marks”…this is due to no location being specified in the options yet.

The only way to access the options for the extension is through the “Chrome Extensions Page”…

The options are very easy to take care of…all that you need to do is enter your location (name or postal code) and decide if you would like to have the temperature displayed in “Celsius Degrees” or not.


Click “Save” when you are finished. Now you are ready to start enjoying that weather forecast goodness.

There are two ways that you can get additional information from the “Toolbar Button”. The first is to hover your mouse over it to see the “Current Weather Conditions”…

And the second is by clicking on the “Toolbar Button” itself to see the “Four Day Forecast” in addition to the “Current Conditions”. Quick, simple, and very convenient.


If you have been looking for an easy “no-fuss” way to monitor the weather in Chrome, then you will definitely want to take a look at this extension.
