Weather is the state of the atmosphere at a place and time as regards heat, dryness, sunshine, wind, rain, etc.
Weather can be an attribute of a post, a log of a passive experience, or an entity.
Calum Ryan displays weather and temperature information per post as of 2016-05-28.
Jeremy Keith displays a weather icon next to the location of the post.
Eddie also uses his current location and the weather from that location to add weather effects to his homepage. as of 2018-11-15 he supports displaying animated snow if it is snowing at his current location.
Weather can be the logging of a passive experience as a post on a site.
An entire site can be for an entity, such as a weather station.
