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.
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.
The simplest use case for weather data is attached to a post of any type. This adds additional context to a post.
Example: Picture of Snowpocalypse...with the context of location and temperature.
