I was a bit worried about the font size of the top header. Would everything fit on one line if the conditions changed to something like “Thunderstorms”? I figured I’d wait and find out; thunderstorms are pretty common in spring.
What I didn’t expect—although I should have—was how a long forecast line could mess up the side-by-side formatting. Here’s what I saw on my phone this morning:
Crap. “PM Thundershowers/Wind” is way too long for a side-by-side arrangement, especially if both forecasts have a line that long. So I went back to the sequential arrangement, with Tomorow’s forecast under Today’s. It’s not as cool looking as side-by-side usually is, but it’s more robust.
And I’ve reduced the font size in the top header a little, hoping that will prevent an ugly line wrap in the future. Tomorrow should be a good test if we get that predicted thunderstorm.
