I’ve written a NOAA Weather widget for WordPress. This is my first widget and my contribution to the WordPress community. You can see the weather widget in action in the sidebar on the right!
The NOAA Weather widget will show the current weather and weather icons for any locale in the United States (including any commonwealths & territories that NOAA reports on). It will automatically add the necessary information into the WordPress cron to update the weather every 30 minutes.
Depending on how well received this widget is and requests for enhancements, I may make a paid for “Pro” version. I would probably ask for a nominal fee (around $10-$20 USD) for this enhanced version. The “Pro” version most likely would include the forecast and alerts in addition to the current weather conditions. Depending on the usefulness, I may make shortcodes to include the weather in posts or other places. I may also make it so you can decide how often to update the weather so you aren’t locked into every 30 minutes.
Click on the “contact us” button on this page and send me an email with your thoughts and suggestions. Also, if you would be interested in a “Pro” version please send me an email so I know how much interest there would be for it.
Thanks and Enjoy!
