According to http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/where_the_weather_is_taken_from the weather forecast of http://www.worldweatheronline.com is used. There, also rain and cloud probability are provided. Both are very interesting for outdoor activities: Rain makes paths slippery, you shall take your umbrella/GoreTex... but the perception amount is not telling much without probability (5mm at 15% is quite different to 2mm at 95%). High cloud probability in alpine terrain has implications on temperature, is a first indicator for thunderstorm / lightning probability,...

Could they please be shown in Locus' weather forecast? And if it's no big deal, please also visibility - if we can see only 2km far it's not that interesting to climb a mountain with wide panoramic view, so we would "reserve" that mountain for a "clearer" day and instead choose a tour with other features like interesting flowers or caves.


BTW: Yes, I could use a separate weather app to get this information, but daily copy & paste the coordinates of all potential tours from Locus to the app is not really my favorite way to spend my evenings during vacation ;-)
