About the Adjective Thermometer

Please note that the Adjective Thermometer app will cease functioning on December 31, 2018. The service that provides our live weather data is unfortunately closing down.

Thank you for enjoying several descriptive years of weather.


InventedĀ as a complex mechanical device, years before the introduction of the iPhone, the Adjective Thermometer comes 11 years in the making.

Now you can carry this magic in your pocket.

Here’s a bit about how it works and the half million possible combinations of words and colors it uses to describe the weather using live data from 30,000 weather stations around the world.


The app comes preloaded with some of our favorite places. You can delete those, add your own, and edit your list at any time.
