Site of the Month: IsItSunshine.com

isitsunshine

IsItSunshine is a clever weather mashup that shows local weather conditions and answers a very simple (ungrammatically correct) question: is it sunshine? The site makes use of Google Maps with an overlay of large visual and very cheerful icons. No fuss, no feature overload. Just a simple idea providing useful information and executed really, really well.

A few other weather mashups already exist but here’s what I especially like about this site:

  • Scrollable time line of upcoming 7-day forecast
  • Filters for temperature, wind, cloudiness, precipitation etc.
  • Loads fast

There’s very little information about the site but it appears to have been created by a Swedish developer, Magnus Ottosson. Hey, Magnus… how about a mobile app?
