Want to have President Obama tell you what the weather is going to be like in your area? Check out Obama Weather. You'll get an avatar of the president dressed in whatever clothing is appropriate for your area.

The site analyzes information from (including the temperature, humidity, and wind), and then visualizes the best clothes to wear. The site's default temperature readings are in Celsius, but it's easy to switch over to Fahrenheit.

It's not entirely accurate, though. When I entered my city, I got a pretty nice forecast--highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s, with chance of rain on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. That wasn't exactly what I remembered hearing on the radio this morning, so I checked out my local forecast on MSN Weather. It wasn't close to the Weatherman-In-Chief's at all. Then I realized Obama Weather was referring to the weather in Bay St. Louis Mississippi, not St. Louis Missouri!

The site's developers, who live in Belarus, don't seem to have gotten around to my area yet. However, the site does have a lot of different locations throughout the world. It was fun to see how the president would dress in different weather extremes. In Anchorage, he’s wearing boots and a parka. In Miami, it’s a tank top, shorts, and flip-flops.

If you don't want Obama showing you the weather, you can have it delivered by Bender from Futurama, Dr. Gregory House from the Fox drama “House”, or Angelina Jolie.


  1. Belarus, huh? That explains the Missouri/Mississippi confusion.

  2. Very funny... like the idea of gregory house with his curtness..

    Thanks for stopping by, the flu post was part mine, part from a friend but feel free to post... it is just so funny

  3. I love this! I love weather, so this is especially neat.

  4. Oh my, talk about adulation. Crazy stuff. Developed in Belarus of all places? How very remote indeed.
