Changing the weather forecast location and temperature unit in Outlook 2013’s Calendar

I’ve installed Office 2013 a few days ago and tonight when opening the calendar I saw a nifty feature at the top showing the current weather forecast (including 2 days in the future) with the minimum and maximum expected temperatures.

I needed to change the location and temperature unit as the default was for New York and the temperature unit in Fahrenheit. To be honest I would have thought that Outlook should be able to pick a default city for my time zone but it’s not a big deal.

Below is a short video on how to change this if you are running Outlook 2013. (View the video in 1080p for best experience)

    This was helpful, though my version is different – I had to go in to the options under the ‘cog wheel’ icon beside my name, top right of the screen. Still, you gave me the idea as to what to look for, and that the change was possible – I now see the weather for the South of France, where I am, not for London!
