Microsoft appears ready to introduce a big update for its Weather app on Windows. According to @ChangeWindows on X (formerly known as Twitter), the best weather app in the world will get even better, thanks to dozens of new features.

Firstly, the update is still being tested, so not everyone can see this yet. The design is getting an uplift. It’s more Fluid-like, with rounder buttons and a fresh light theme that’s pleasing to the eyes.

Now, a thing that could catch your attention is the chance to switch from Light to Dark themes immediately when you are in the temperature unit selector pop-up. It sounds convenient. But it seems some issues still need fixing because this change isn’t working as smoothly as we hoped yet.

Navigation is also being improved. A fresh navigation control will let you swiftly move between parts of the homepage without needing to scroll endlessly. And for people who prefer organizing in advance, the “SEE MONTHLY PLANNER” button is changed to a “SEE MONTHLY” button that scrolls downwards on this page rather than opening another one.

The “WEATHER INSIGHTS” section is being changed to “Weather details.” In this new section, the Weather app will provide information on Cloud Cover, Wind, AQI (Air Quality Index), Visibility, Dew point temperature, the Moon phase, and many others. Additionally, a new home page design includes a fresh set of controls for the Weather maps section.

However, as all good things have a bad side, the update brings two more ad blocks to the Monthly part of the new homepage. Also, the last section, Weather Trends, will display historical weather data for a place that may be interesting to those who like statistics.

The other parts of the Weather app are the same as before. The update is being released slowly, so if you’re fortunate enough to be among those who’ve already got it, please share what you think about this new look. Is it refreshing, or do you yearn for the old layout?

You can share your experiences in the comments, and if you want to experiment with it, watch for the MSN Weather app update on the Microsoft Store.
