Here’s a list of 5 live weather extensions for Google Chrome. A live weather extension will keep you notified about changes in weather right away after they are logged on whatever website is being used for the source of weather info. Extensions on the following list will check for new weather updates every few minutes at a minimum, so that you are always kept up to date and informed about the current weather.
Weather Watcher Live For Chrome:
Weather Watcher Live allows you to keep track of live weather for practically every city in the world, and you can even type in a zipcode / postcode numbers if you want. It shows live temperature in the icon of the extension, that sits right next to Chrome address bar.
This live weather extension for Chrome also has 7 day forecast, satellite maps, alerts for a whole set of natural disasters like for example hurricanes, tornadoes, etc, in case that you rarely go out of the house and/or turn on the news.

New Tab Page reImagined
New Tab Page reImagined will take over the new tab home page and instead of showing the usual Google search homepage, it will instead show weather forecast updates, along other useful information, like for example a news feed.
Updates come in real time; every time that you open up a new tab you’re gonna see freshly updated information about the current weather conditions for your location, plus a 4 day weather forecast. Your location is automatically detected and setup.
US Weather Live TV
US Weather Live TV is actually an app that opens up in a new tab where it shows you the latest weather updates as a video. Video starts playing as soon as you select a region of the United States for which you would like to receive weather updates.
Weather info is updated on a regular basis, from famous weather websites like WeatherNation. At the bottom of the app page you can specify your location in more detail using Google Maps.

Weather Now is completely opposite of the previously mentioned Weather Now extension. Instead of having super advanced interface, it brings simplicity and only the basic info about the current weather.
By clicking on the gears icon in the bottom left corner you can tweak current location and switch between the metric and royal system of measurements.

From the 5 live weather extensions that we talked about above, we recommend that you start with the last two. WeatherBug is for those looking for something a bit more advanced, while Weather Now for those looking for simplicity. Others are also quite useful.
