Siri not only makes for a great digital assistant but a great weather forecaster as well. With a little help from Siri, you can make sure you're never caught without your umbrella, raincoat, snow shovel, or suntan lotion again.

How to check current weather conditions with Siri

How do you find out about the weather? Just ask Siri.

  1. Press and hold down the Home button to activate Siri.
  2. Ask Siri to check the weather. For example, "What's the weather today?"

Tap the weather widget to go to the Weather App.

How to view a weekly weather or future forecast with Siri

If you care more about the entire weekly forecast, or a specific day of the upcoming week, you can ask Siri to show you that instead, and highlight it for you as well.

  1. Press and hold down the Home button to activate Siri.
  2. Ask Siri to tell you what the weekly weather looks like. For example, "What is the forecast for this week?" or "What's the weather on Friday?"

How to check the weather in a different location with Siri

If you're traveling or simply care more about the weather someplace else than you do at home, Siri can give you the same information for another area.

  1. Press and hold down the Home button to activate Siri.
  2. Ask Siri to tell you the weather in another location. For example, "What's the weather like in Chicago?" or "Will it be hot in San Francisco today?"

How to ask Siri other weather-related questions

You can also ask Siri more practical questions, like "do I need a rain jacket today". They'll call up the same weather widget, but they let you ask what you're specifically interested in finding out.

  1. Press and hold down the Home button to activate Siri.
  2. Ask Siri if you need anything special to prepare for the weather. For example, "Do I need a coat today?" or "Will I I need an umbrella tomorrow?"

How to check sunrise and sunset times with Siri

Want to make sure you're up at the crack of dawn, or that you make it home before dusk? Siri can tell you that as well.

  1. Press and hold down the Home button to activate Siri.
  2. Ask Siri to tell you when the sun is setting or rising. For example, "What time will the sun set tonight?" or "What time did the sun rise this morning?"
