The Star Wars Weather Forecast.
Second try for me: Alice Springs, Australia.
My first try, Abu Dhabi, UAE, was “like Endor.” Turns out December is the height of the wet season there, with a whole 36 mm average precipitation.
Tataouine, Tunisia isn’t in Tom Scott’s database, apparently.
As soon as I understood what it was doing, I just typed in Adelaide and bingo. Bloody stupid place, Adelaide. Avoid.
Twenty degrees difference between Hoth and Tatooine.
You metric users are not thinking clearly.
On my four try I typed Mecca and that did it.
I like when you type in a city that it can’t find.
Does it ever describe a place as being a wretched hive of scum and villainy?
“Singapore” made me giggle.
Finally get to see Tatooine. Spank you all very much.
This is awesome! Thank you!
I didn’t initially notice the small text in the lower right, which makes it awesomer.
(By the way, if you haven’t tried typing in the name of a city that doesn’t exist–or one that does but which you’re sure it won’t know–do so. 😀 )
Washington D.C. should be the wrecthed hive of scum and villainy, but for some reason it isn’t. Though I would be thankfull if someone could tell how to get the lava moon from Ep.III.
Okay seriously, London was 2 Celsius and they call that Hoth? Ice cold desolation? What a bunch of weaklings.
The source code of the page tells you all the planets that it’ll do. It took me dozens of tries to hunt down a Dagobah-like city with today’s weather, though. (I finally found one in Belize City.)
2nd try for me as well. Asmara, Eritrea was Yavin IV like, while Johannesburg was Tatooine
And actually, I think the difference between Hoth and tatooine is like, 15 degrees. Broken Bow, Nebraska is a Hoth-like 6, while, Sydney is a Sarlaac-plentiful 21.
The problem is that “hot and cloudy/wet” gives you Yavin IV and “hot and dry” gives you Tatooine. So it basically depends on cloud coverage on any given day. Jo-burg and Dubai were both Yavin IV when I checked them out.
First to find Kashyyyk wins a prize?
One try: Santiago (Chile). Its where I live and really, I bet everyone of us in the southern hemisphere hate those “snowy xmas” movies. Here full of sweaty santas.
“Yikes. 25°C, Smoke?
Fog, mist, cloud. Can’t see a thing.”
“Also Lando is going to betray you.”
Try pressing “go” without typing in a city for a surprise.
Legazpi, Philippines is about to be “Like Mustafar,” if news reports are accurate.
When in doubt, Namibia. It will never be cool, wet, misty or cloudy there. Anytime someone says “hot,” I equate it on a scale of Not Namibia to Namibia.
Portland brought me to Kamino, wherever that is.
I think it’s the water world where the Jedis went to pick up the clones?
Yup. Kamino is where Kenobi found out about Jango and the clones.
