Get a beautiful weather forecast delivered to your inbox every morning.

If you are already registered, you can update your preferences at any time.

How It Works

Sign up using the form above. We'll send you an email with a link to confirm your subscription that you must click on before we can send you anything - we don't want someone getting signed up without their consent.

Each morning, we'll send you an email that looks like this. It's completely text-based and uses picture fonts in the subject line and body that allow you to quickly see what's happening. It shows up nicely on both desktop and mobile devices.

You can change your location at any time using the link to modify your settings. For example, if you are going out of town for a couple days, you can change the city for your daily email and then easily change it back when you get home.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is free? What's the catch?   There is no catch. We build this service because we wanted it for ourselves and we found partners gracious enough to donate services to make it happen.

How many emails will I receive?   You will receive one email per day. The only other email you might receive is a note from us if something went wrong explaining what happened.

Can I get forcasts for more than one city?   To keep this service simple, we don't offer that. You are welcome to sign up for another city using a second email address.

You want me to give you my email address? Are you nuts?   We promise never to do anything with your email address that we wouldn't want done with our own. This includes selling, renting, distributing, or any slimy use. We just want to send you a weather forecast and any emails related to outages our downtime.

How do I unsubscribe?   Every email you receive from us will have an unsubscribe link at the bottom of it. If that doesn't work, contact us and we'll help you out. Unsubscribes take effect immediately - none of that infuriating "we'll remove you within a week" nonsense.

Where does the data come from?  We get weather data from the good people at NOAA. Visit for more information.

Can I get a forecast for a location outside the U.S.?  Unfortunately, not at this time. NOAA does a great job providing weather data for the United States but international data is much harder to come by.

Our Partners

This project would not be possible without the gracious donation of services by our partners who have provided hosting, bandwidth, and email sending to this open-source project.

Rackspace has donated the server hosting and bandwidth for this project. Rackspace Cloud Servers were easy to set up and manage, and their "fanatical" support lives up to the name. Visit Rackspace for more information.

Mailgun has donated the email sending for this project, and this project would have never launched without their help. They took away the great pain of reliable email delivery with a simple, easy-to-use service that has been solid since day one. Visit Mailgun for more information.
