How to see hour-by-hour weather on Android

It's always good to see what weather you should expect later in the day or week.

Planning a good time to visit the beach, do some yard work, or stay inside and read are all heavily dependent on one factor: the weather. Choosing that ideal time during the day can save you from either freezing, sweating or getting soaked by rain and make the overall experience more pleasant. Here are three easy steps for finding the hour-by-hour forecast on your Android device:

1. Open the News & Weather app located in your app drawer. If you can't find it, open the Clock app and press on the current temperature.

Now that you have the main weather area loaded, you will see the 7-day forecast at the bottom of the screen. This can also be useful for planning trips to theme parks, camping, or even which vehicle to take to work (because motorcycles and rainstorms are not fun together).

2. Tap on the temperature digits and a small graph will appear at the bottom of the screen. This is the hour-by-hour forecast from the current time through part of the next day.

3. Slide the bar on the graph to view different time slots during the day. The temperature will be listed under the city name, and time is along the bottom of the graph.

Now you won't need to find a TV or look up the weather on your computer, since you have easy access to it in your pocket.
