Alexa Tips: Upgrade Your Weather Forecast

Alexa’s ability to deliver weather forecasts is pretty basic, and there are a number of additional weather skills available to enabled.

A more recent one, powered by the Weather Network, could possibly be your best bet. I’ve been testing a slew of weather skills recently, trying to find the best one and this particular skill stands out.

With The Weather Network skill, you can ask to hear any weather alerts in your hyperlocal area, when it might rain, and even get a more detailed forecast than you can with any of the others.

Where to get it: You can locate The Weather Network Skill in the Amazon Alexa app, enable it using your voice, or use the following web link: The Weather Network


Alexa is available for Amazon devices Echo, Echo 2, Dot, Tap, Echo Spot, Echo Plus, Echo Show, Echo Look, Echo Connect, Dash Wand, Fire tablets, and Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Edition TVs, in the Music app, but also on iOS, Android, and the web with Reverb.ai.
