Weather Score

An Alexa skill that helps you familiarize with the weather of a city you are interested in.

I moved to New York City from California and was surprised by the amount of rain it has here. To me it feels like it's always raining. I was also curious about the climate in other cities in case I'd move again. Searching for historical weather info online isn't pain-free, you need to find a responsive site with good data visualization that fits your need. And surprisingly I didn't find an Alexa skill for past weather, they were all forecasting. So I wrote it myself.

Check it out if you would like to get familiar with the climate before moving to a new city or buying property there.
