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) When accessing the site, is it easy enough to spot a dialog box requesting your current location?
Yes, the dialog box is very front and center. When you go to the site, it is the first thing you see. There’s no way to miss it.
2)How easy it is to retrieve a weather info for a specific city?
This was also very easy. I tried it out and just typed in the name of my city, and it pulled it up immediately. I also used the buttons at the bottom of the page to look at weather in cities around the world. I additionally typed in “Cannes” to see what the weather was like there. Each time, the correct information appeared.
3) Is the forecast information detailed enough? If not, what other information would like to see on the forecast?
I think the that the forecast information is detailed enough for someone who just wants the weather at a glance. However, I would like to see an option for a more detailed forecast. I didn’t see anything on the page where I could find information for more than three days into the future or a more detailed explanation of the weather (ex. hourly forecast). Those things aren’t always important, but when serious weather conditions are imminent, people suddenly become interested in those things.

Personally, I love simplicity, and I can honestly that your website is very simple. You make it so that you don’t have to look far to find out the most relevant, important information regarding weather conditions for the current time. The website is also very pleasing to the eyes (for me). I like the colors and the fonts used. I think it’s much more pleasant to look at than just a jumble of confused weather information as so many other sites have where you do often have to dig to find out what you’re looking for.
However, you do need an option for people to be able to see a more detailed forecast if they want. It would be nice if you could somehow present this detail in a simple, straightforward manner as you have the at-a-glance weather your homepage provides.
All the temperatures were presented to me in Celsius, and I did not see a way to change that. I go by Fahrenheit, so it would be nice if I could somehow set the page to look at temperatures in Fahrenheit.
When I first went to your page, it was searching for my location, but I think it wasn’t able to find it because it never automatically presented my local weather to me. I had to manually type in my city and state to get my local weather to appear.
I think your site looks great, and the simplicity is a great way to go. Lots of people prefer the simple over the complex. I think there is some minor tweaking to be done to make your site what it could potentially become, but you are definitely on the right track.
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!

Upon first access to the site there was a very prominent banner across the top of the page asking for my location. I did not put any information in at that time. When I went back in a second time to the home page, the banner was gone. I looked for it, but could not locate it. I did not see a box to put the information in so I went ahead and signed up. It was not until after I signed up and then when over to my email to confirm the account that my city and personal forecast came up. I was then very pleased with my personal home page.

I cannot find the box where I would access another city.

The forecast information is fantastically detailed. I was impressed with it. Someone very close to me is a weather enthusist. I believe he will enjoy it as well.
The website is very good. The only real problem I had was finding the box to put in the different cities, which is important of course. Otherwise, it is almost perfect. Lots of great detail!
