The Visual Weather Report

swackett® is a fun new way to look at the weather. We convert complex weather data to easily-understood, visual weather reports designed for people of every age. Our unique approach is to combine raw weather data (current conditions, radar, and detailed forecasts) with thoughtfully crafted people symbols (called “peeps”) who always appear appropriately dressed for the weather.

If it happens to be cold outside, swackett® peeps appear dressed in winter hats, coats and boots. A hot, sunny day? swackett® peeps appear wearing shorts and sunglasses — and they even remember to bring along drinking water and sunblock. Rain? swackett® peeps appear with rain jackets and an umbrella.

This is a fun, fresh and truly useful weather report experience for people of any age.

Impressed Always looking for new-to-me weather apps, tried this. Looks gimmicky, but there's a lot under the bonnet!

Please include Celsius option It's bit helpful with all the outfit choices but I wish there could be a way to change the degrees measurement to celsius - Its inconvenient to use websites to do that.
