OWM Weather is a flexible and easy-to-use weather plugin that allows the creation of unlimited different Weathers using WordPress Custom Post Types and the Open Weather Map API. Create a Weather, select your location, choose the data and customize the look and feel with a few clicks. Embed it with the automatically generated shortcode via copy and paste anywhere in posts, pages, text widgets, or directly in the PHP files of your theme. With Custom Post Types, you minimize the maintenance: Override certain settings in the system setup and thereby change all Weather posts automatically.


Weather information

Current weather conditions, alerts, hourly up to 48 hours and daily up to 7 days.

Completely customizable

Data items can be selected and styled individually. Pick your measurement system, time format, and zone. Choose from several templates, fonts, or icon sets.

Developers have access through custom templates to the raw OpenWeather data – converted to the selected measurement system, time format, and zone – to build a completely customized layout. A built-in debug template shows all options, data, and generated HTML snippets.

Shortcode Placement

Use in content and/or sidebar, or as a widget on the admin dashboard. Multiple completely different kinds of Weather can be shown on the same page.

Weather Location

The worldwide location can be specified by the OWM city id (available for over 200,000 cities), the city/country name via dynamic search, the zip code, the latitude/longitude, or the IP address of the user (geolocation).

Unlimited weathers

OWM Weather uses WordPress Custom Post Types which allows for an unlimited number of weathers.

Weather-based Backgrounds

Define up to 7 different background colors, images, or videos depending on the weather condition.

Cache system

Weather data is cached at a frequency defined by you. The data is then loaded from your server and you no longer depend on external sources. This avoids slowdowns and blocked page rendering.

Open Weather Map API

OWM Weather retrieves the weather information from the Open Weather Map website, a free weather data and forecast API. Get your own free API key to avoid running into call limits. Note: It can take several hours before your API key is activated by OWM.

Dashboard Weather

You can include OWM Weather in your WordPress Dashboard as a widget.

Flat & Retina responsive design

Minimalist and flat responsive design, fully vectorial (SVG/CSS/Webfont), for a perfect display on all devices.

Options panel

Do you want to apply configuration settings globally? With our system options panel, you can bypass each setting on all Weathers in just a few clicks. A weather page can opt out of this bypass to ensure it always looks the same.

Google Tag Manager

Certain Weather information (ie. current temperature, cloudiness, short description, and category) can be pushed to the Google Tag Manager data layer to analyze web traffic by weather.
