Today's weather in status bar". You will be prompted to enter your current
location if you haven't done so before.
Go to "Tools:Options:Weather" to configure options for weather
- Show today's weather in status bar
When this option is on, the weather condition of today will be shown in the
status bar at the bottom of SlimBoat window. The weather condition is
updated every half an hour.
- Unit for displayed temperature
Choose centigrade or Fahrenheit as the unit for temperature display.
- Set My Location
Set your geographic location for weather forecast. If you live in the United
States, your 5-digit zip code is the best way to uniquely identify your
location for weather forecast. If you live outside the United States, please
input your country, city name, province and then click the "Locate" button
to determine your geographic zone for weather forecast. If multiple zones
are found, you will be prompted to select the zone closest to your actual
location. Right now, we have weather data for every city in the United
States. However, we only have weather data for most of the major cities
outside America. If you can't find a corresponding geographic zone for your
home city, please try a larger city around your place.
