Do I Need an Umbrella?

Thursday, April 29th, 2010 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

This is a simple way of finding out if you need an umbrella for the day. Just type in your zip code or city’s name and click the Well, do I button. It will then instantly tell you if you need an umbrella, and what the percentage is for a chance of rain.

For example, as I write this, it is raining here, but it’s so quiet that I can’t hear it over the strains of Vivaldi that are floating through the house, so I could easily come check this site out and see if I needed an umbrella if I ventured out!

You’ll also get a mini forecast – for example – it tells me that it is partly cloudy with a chance of rain, and that the temperature is 59° F.

I think this site is a fun, if lazy way, to check the weather. I love the look and feel of the site, and the sayings differ with degree of the rain that you’re facing.
