In response to popular demand, AerisWeather is thrilled to share the release of new, simple, single location, and more importantly, free HTML weather widgets to display basic weather conditions on the website of your choice. These widgets are customizable in look and feel and are value-driving additions for websites of all varieties, especially local media, small business, hobby sites, forums, and other digital platforms where weather provides important context for safety and activity planning. An example is provided below:
Ready to get started building your own? Simply input your contact information on this page and begin modifying colors, text, and formatting for your weather widget in the Widget Wizard.
First, we can select from one of 8 basic widget layouts in varying sizes and with varying information. Select your widget layout of choice and you’ll be taken to Step 2.
Add your location via entering the place name, PWS station, ZIP code, or latitude and longitude coordinate of choice. Next, take the opportunity to apply any custom styles and features to your widget. This can include metric system readings, light and dark premade themes to fit your specific branding requirements and guidelines.
Don’t like the preview you see? You can always change to another widget layout by clicking “Previous” and selecting another.
You can also flex your creativity with custom color options. Just open the Custom Colors menu and use the color picker or hex values to modify any part of the widget. Some examples are below:
Once you’ve selected a layout, theme, measurement unit, and custom colors, the only thing left to do is to copy your custom code above into the location on your website you’d like your widget to be placed. Your widget should render instantly.
