Weather Widgets for Fedora 25

Weather. It’s always happening and it’s always changing. As such, it’s extremely difficult to predict, at least as far as long range forecasts go. With that in mind, many of us do need to know what the current temperature is or at least have an idea what it’s going to be like later on in case you’re planning to go jogging or maybe driving to a ski hill or even stepping out onto your front steps. Yeah, you may need to know what the weather is going to be like and, if you are using Fedora 25, you might want to know how to install a weather widget such as OpenWeather for your awesome Linux based system.
