another “country package“, this time for the UK. There are two new plugins and one new block. For all these you will need to get a free API key at MetOffice, the link is provided in the settings and documentation.
Pressure Maps UK (and part of EU)
This plugin shows surface pressure charts for the upcoming 4 days in 12h intervals. The area actually covers more than just UK so it can be used even for Western Europe etc.
This plugin shows extreme weather for the previous day, broken down by regions as well as for the UK as a whole. It includes the min/max temperature, highest rainfall and longest sunshine duration. Data is shown in sortable tables and graphs, always the actual value and location.
Regional/national UK forecast
This is a block for the homepage which shows detailed textual forecast – national and regional. In the settings, apart from the MetOffice API key you also specify the region you are interested in.
