Weather in CalenGoo

You can either just active Google Calendar’s weather calendar (see below) or you can activate CalenGoo’s weather function under "Settings > Weather" to display a weather forecast in CalenGoo. CalenGoo’s day view and some of the agenda widgets have a special way to display the weather: In the day view you can get a three hour forecast at the right side of the screen. And in the agenda widget you can get a forecast in the date header of each day:


In addition CalenGoo can generate simple all-day events from the weather forecast so that you can see them in all calendar views and all widgets (all widgets that display all-day events).

Weather calendar

Google Calendar has a weather calendar that can be activated in Google Calendar’s settings under “Show weather based on my location”. By activating the calendar you can get a weather forecast for the next three days.

According to this post and this post Google Calendar does not support a weather calendar any more. But you can use CalenGoo’s weather calendar as explained above.

If you sync that calendar directly (i.e. not via Android) CalenGoo can even display small icons for these events:

To make CalenGoo recognize the change immediately (and not on the next day when the weather changes), please first set it to “Do not show weather”. Then sync CalenGoo by choosing “Sync” from the menu. Wait for the sync to finish. Then set it to the desired value “°C” or “°F” and sync CalenGoo again. If the new weather calendar doesn’t appear, please tap “Settings”, “Visibility/Download”, press the menu button and choose “Refresh Android Calendars”.

Alternative weather calendar

It is also possible to subscribe to other weather calendars that provide more information, e.g. “wunderground”:

  2. Move the mouse over the blue button in the upper right corner of the page, and right-click the appearing “Download iCal” menu entry. Choose “Copy Link Address”.
  3. Add this iCal Link to your Google Calendar using Google Calendar’s “Add by URL” function.
