City Forecasts

Preview Home

City forecasts displayed on the homepage, and forecasts page can be added through the CMS in two ways:

  1. Manually adding daily forecasts

  2. Fetching city forecasts from an external source i.e YR Meteo Norway’s location forecast API


The forecast manager comes with predefined weather conditions and icons. Please refer to YR Weather symbols documentation for guidance on icons and naming convention.

The city forecast explorer menu can be accessed on the left sidebar.

Forecast explorer

Here you have the ability to:

  • Add/Edit/Delete a city (city name and location)

    Add city

  • Import city forecasts in CSV format.

    Add Forecast Explorer

    Using the forecast manager, it is possible to load city forecasts in CSV format created offline or alternatively populate the table on the right with data. A template of the standard CSV structure is provided prepopulated with a list of all cities listed in the database. However, the forecast manager can accept a different structure and allow for correct matching of each of the columns. A forecast date must be provided for the data being uploaded before publishing.

    Add Forecast

  • Preview previously added city forecasts (last 7 days)

    Load Forecast Explorer

    It is also possible to fetch and preview the last 7 day city forecasts. The forecast manager allows for switching between each of the avilable dates and preview both in tabular and georeferenced formats.
