At work we’re upgrading to Outlook 2013. One of the new features is that the Calendar will display the weather for the next few days.
If you like this, that’s great. However, most of the world uses Celcius, but out of the box Outlook displays Fahrenheit (regardless of the locale set up on your machine). In fact, it also defaults to New York as the city.
Changing the Weather Location
It is easy enough to change the weather location. Just click on the name of the city and you get a drop down box.
If the city you want is not in the list, just select “Add Location” and you get a search box to type in the city that you want.
Change the Temperature Scale to Celsius
Changing the temperature scale to Celsius is a little bit more involved. First click the “File” menu in the top right corner of the window.
Then select the “Options” button from the new menu.
This will display the options dialog. First, click the “Calendar” button in the left menu. Then scroll down to the bottom of the options that are presented. The Weather options are last. You’ll see you can then select the temperature scale (“Celsius” or “Fahrenheit”) that you want. Or you can even turn off the weather too.
Then you can just “OK” the dialog and the weather will be updated into Celsius. Much more civilised.
