New in Outlook 2013 – the Weather Bar

Here is a Microsoft Blog post about the new “Outlook Weather Bar” in Outlook 2013:

“by Outlook Team – on December 12Screenshot of the Outlook 2013 Weather barWe’ve heard from you that it’s helpful to see the weather daily as you plan your day, so we’ve added it to the calendar. Below are some of the ways you can use the Weather Bar.

Weather Peek

Having lived in Boston previously, I know that sunny skies outside the window can be misleading at times. To help you with more than just the high and low temperature of the day, when you hover over the different days in the weather bar, you’ll get a weather peek. There, you can see more details, such as the wind speed. So even though it’s warm outside in Boston right now, I may bring a cardigan for the gusty 17mph wind.

Add Location

We also know that some of you travel between multiple locations for your job or travel for the holidays. With the Outlook Weather Bar, you can add up to five locations.Screenshot of the Outlook 2013 Weather bar - Add location

After you’ve clicked the dropdown arrow, click Add Location and search for your location to add it to the list. My grandparents live in Taipei, and I often chat with them, so I’ve added Taipei here as one of the locations on the Weather Bar.Screenshot of the Outlook 2013 Weather bar - Add location

You can then quickly switch between different locations and see their weather.
