Asking Alexa for the weather has become part of millions’ of people’s daily routines. It’s faster than checking it on your phone. Plus, you can multitask while you’re doing something else (like making breakfast or pulling on a pant leg).
The best Alexa weather skill…
When you just want a quick update
Just use the default Alexa weather skill. It’s free!
“Alexa, what’s the weather today?”
“Alexa, what’s the weather in Ft. Lauderdale tomorrow?”
If you ask Alexa for the weather but don’t specify location, she’ll give you the weather for the location associated with your Echo device (likely your home or maybe office address).
When you want more detail
If you want to know forecast for the next hour, real feel, sunrise and sunset times, humidity, wind gusts and more, ask Alexa for the Big Sky weather skill (it’s free!).
“Alexa, ask Big Sky what the weather is today.”
