I suggest you ...

Weather in Fahrenheit?

I have set my preference for imperial/miles, but I cannot find a way to get the weather in Fahrenheit instead of Celsius. How can this preference be set?

Hi Rob

we are drawing the weather widget externally, so we have no influence on how the temperatures are displayed there, I am afraid.

Best regards
Daniela

    Maybe that was the case in the past but looking at the code and the provider you use this seems like a very simple change. You just need to set the units. On a Komoot page with the weather I see in the HTML something like this:

    https://www.komoot.com/api/weather/36.9,-122.0?units=si&lang=en&hl=en

    By changing the units to "us" it turns the results into Fahrenheit.

    https://www.komoot.com/api/weather/36.9,-122.0?units=us&lang=en&hl=en

    Dark Sky's own website where you note where you're getting the data from works nearly identically to this. us12 vs si12. Just a shift in the URI and the results change.

    Just starting using Komoot and I'm having the same issue.....weather is displaying temp in Celsius even though I have my preference set to imperial/miles. If I can't see the forecasted temp in Fahrenheit I won't be using Komoot nor will any of my friends. Thanks
