TFW: The Fucking Weather.com

by Anne Paddock

When I need to add some humor to my day, my go-to website is www.thefuckingweather.com (although the site is often referred to as TFW for those less inclined to drop the F bomb).  People talk about weather all the time and it’s a safe topic to discuss when there isn’t anything else to have a conversation about because the weather is relevent and people have either a sense of curiosity, wonder, or disgust with it on any given day. And, of course there is always the looming weather disaster somewhere in the world which generates chatter.  But, if you simply want a more humorous take on the weather go to TFW – one of the most hilarious weather websites ever created.

There are no colorful maps, hourly forecasts, sweeping lines of color showing an impending low-pressure or high-pressure storm (I never know what the difference is anyway), or historical averages on www.thefuckingweather.com. Instead, this very simple and straightforward weather site gives you 4 pieces of information:

  1. The current weather in temperature (Fahrenheit or Celsius) at almost any location in the world. Just type in a location or choose a random location for entertainment;
  2. A general one-liner that describes the current weather, such as “It’s fucking nice” or “It’s fucking hot;”
  3. A short statement of advice or a suggestion, such as “Still not appropriate to wear a speedo though” or “It’s that kind of day where you want zip off pants, until you realize how much of a jackass you look like in them;” or “Don’t own a grill? Just use the driveway.”
  4. A 5-day forecast with the low temperature, high temperature, and a clean description of what to expect.

That’s it – so if you just want the basics but also want a laugh, go to www.thefuckingweather.com
