The Forecast Channel

The Forecast Channel is a Wii Channel that allowed users to view the weather in their local area. It was added on December 19, 2006, about one month after the Wii was released. The Forecast Channel preview displayed the local weather of where the user is located. The Weather Channel provided weather information from all over the world to the user. Features included the five-day forecast, current temperature, highs and lows for the day, along with other meteorological data. Using the Globe, players could use the Wii Remote to rotate a virtual globe to see the weather conditions from each region of the world. Japan had unique cartoonish weather symbols, compared to the rest of the world.

Some games, including Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, have an option that allowed the game to draw information from the Forecast Channel and use that weather as the weather conditions in the game.
