That’s why we’ve decided to make things easier by giving a top 3 weather apps you might want to get on Windows device.

As expected, weather is presented in four sections: current, today, hourly, and daily. Each one of those provides temperature, wind speed and precipitation. Current weather includes well known features as humidity levels, real feel temperature, sunrise and sunset times.
