LOCATION SPECIFIC INFORMATION

You can link your account in the Amazon app to set a default zip code, but you can also make any request with a city and state combination to get specific information for any location in the United States. 

If you don't want to link your account, you can still set a default city and state as your home address.

You can also save a work address if you want to get quick updates about the weather at a second saved location.

Any request made between the current time and seven days into the future is a normal request, but if you want to get information either very far into the future or really far in the past you can with TIME MACHINE REQUESTS.

TIME MACHINE REQUESTS - This is a new feature you can purchase to unlock requests into the past or future! Anything more than seven days in the future or one day into the past counts as these. Purchase them as needed for when you want to look something unusual up!

Silver Linings uses the Dark Sky Api for accurate and up-to-date weather information! Hourly updates to keep you informed about what to expect with your day.
