We've updated the weather forecast integration on your booking calendar and homepage widget. We used to use weather data from DarkSky, and after they were acquired by Apple, we switched to a new data provider - WeatherStack.com. This new provider offers more accurate data from some of the world's leading weather stations and data providers, all of which are closely monitored to ensure consistency and accuracy around the clock.
You now get up to 14 days of forecasts with 96 hourly accuracy. We've taken advantage of this change to improve the presentation of the data, both on the computer and on smaller mobile screens.
We take advantage of all the data provided. On the menu of new features, the UV index makes its appearance, it is also possible to know the time of sunrise and sunset, the wind power gains a precision on the gusts and a confidence index (probability) is displayed for the precipitation forecast.
Tap on the day's header to see the forecast details on mobile and tablets:
Forecasts appear on the "Calendars by day" view, for the moment only on computers and tablets. A button displaying the maximum temperature forecast for the day is available in the upper right corner of the screen, just left of the zoom menu. A click on this button displays the forecast for the day.
You benefit from hourly accurate forecasts for the first 96 hours. We have decided to take advantage of this and display a preview of the forecast directly on the time slots.
On computer, drag the mouse on the time slot to see an icon representing the forecast. On mobile or touch screens, touch and hold the slot.
The forecast display has been improved on the booking form. By default, a compact view of the information is displayed, including the icon, temperature, wind, rain and % cloud cover. Clicking on this insert now displays more details, including wind gusts and UV index. All this is also available on mobile of course.
