Use Synopter widget to add the weather forecast

The Synopter widget comes with a fully customizable layout to get the most informative weather block to suit your needs. It includes current weather for a certain location. You can manage the display of different weather characteristics and choose icons for each of them from the library or upload your own icon in SVG format. It doesn’t matter what kind of site you have, even a small weather block can be a useful element for your visitors. The Synopter widget can be especially practical for travel agencies, weather stations, when booking or planning events, or for any companies whose activities may depend on weather conditions.

For further work, you need the Elementor to be installed on your site. You can download it from wordpress.org

Open or create a page using Elementor to start using the Synopter widget. You will find the widget at the end of the general section.
