I would give it more stars, but AccuWeather is inaccurate. The temperature in my area is not going to be 107°F if anything 104°F. I have no idea why AccuWeather's predictions are so far off. Is it incompetence or perhaps political? Whatever it is, I will not be using your wonderful app, unless you're able to find a more accurate source to use.

I've always loved this extension (only negative is that precipitation numbers always end up WAY off...why is that ACCUweather?), first using it with Firefox and then Chorme, and the developer is quick to fix issues that pop up as well. :)

The best forecasting extension on Chrome and Edge. I consult this daily to see the weekly and daily forecast. Love how I can see the animated radar image by just hovering over the icon. Thanks to Oleksandr for carefully maintaining it!
