We could display precipitation chance next to rain icon like this "58%"
But that would make the time bar look terrible.
Also this may be confusing - some people to read 58% as a mild rain intensity, not probability.
We want to run an experiment.
The idea is to reduce rain drops (snow flakes) transparency when the rain probability is low.
When drops are semi-transparent - rain chance is low.
When drops are crisp - rain chance is close to 100%.
This rule is only applied to weather icons.
The animated rain and snow are not affected.
When the rain chance is low, YoWindow is still displaying the rain effect as usual.
This may confuse the user.
To solve this we have added a label that indicates the probability of rain or snow.
The label only displayed when the user navigated to rain or snow in the weather forecast
The precipitation chance is available for the USA only.
However, we are going to receive it globally from met.no soon.
Please share your experience with this new feature.
