Weather forecast

Local weather forecasts now available on UBNM

Always looking to add more useful information to your news feed

Here in our first month live, we’re constantly looking to add value to your customized UBNM news feed. With an eye to the future, we added some local information — starting right now.

We just added a brand new feature to UBNM: the ability to add a four-day weather forecast for your local area to your custom news feed. We know this isn’t an earth-shattering development, but it adds value nonetheless. It’s small feature but will undoubtedly help to save you some time.

Here’s what it’ll look like in your news feed:
Four-day weather forecast

We plan to add more local information to your news feed in the near future, so this is only the beginning of more good things to come.

Adding the current weather forecast to your news feed

If you choose to turn this feature on, the weather forecast will appear at the bottom of your news feed, underneath all of your selected news topics.

Profile Settings, Local Weather

To add the local weather forecast to your account, simply go to your account settings page, and scroll to ‘Profile Settings.’ In the ‘Profile Settings’ section, check the ‘Yes’ box under ‘Local Weather’ and be sure to add your ZIP code to the ZIP box. Once you have selected ‘Yes’ for Local Weather and inputted your ZIP code, click the ‘Save Changes’ button.

Local weather will now appear as part of your news feed.
