    When accessing the site, is it easy enough to spot a dialog box requesting your current location? Extremely easy. What a fantastic, self explanatory site!

    How easy it is to retrieve a weather info for a specific city? It’s extremely easy. I first put my zip code in and it instantly brought up my weather, accurately and promptly. I then entered a city in Turkey and it brought up that as well, without difficulty.

    Is the forecast information detailed enough? If not, what other information would like to see on the forecast? Yes, the information is extremely detailed, however, I was disappointed to see that it only contained celsius information. I would appreciate fahrenheit as well. I would also like to see the date continued on all days of the week, as is with the very first day displayed.

    1: I had to allow chrome permission to allow the site to request my location, but other than that it was easy.
    2:It was extreamly easy to get my location and search for others. It is even easy to manually edit the url!
    3:I enjoy minimalist views. This site fits that perfectly. Would there be a way to embed a radar map? Would adding color to the weather icons fit? Also works Great from a mobile browser!
