How to Change the Microsoft Outlook Calendar Weather to Celsius or Fahrenheit

Microsoft Outlook has a weather widget included within the Calendar tab. By default, it’s set to Fahrenheit, but you can change it to Celsius as well. Here’s how.

Displaying the weather in the Microsoft Outlook calendar is very convenient; however, along with other customizations, you can also customize the temperature to display Fahrenheit or Celsius. Here’s how to switch between Fahrenheit or Celsius.

  1. From Microsoft Outlook, Click File >
  2. Click Calendar, then scroll down to the bottom of the window to the Weather
  3. Click the desired radio button to choose between Celsius or Fahrenheit.

The changes made will take effect immediately. As you can see from the screenshot below, I’m now displaying the temperature in Fahrenheit.

    a country that recognizes Celsius as the national standard” – or the entire world apart from the US, PLUS the scientific community!

    Thanks for this – I was actually looking for changing it in the Add-Ins section in OL2013.
    Did not expect it to be under the Calendar section…

      You’ve very welcome Mario. At first I thought it was a useless feature but I’ve come to use it more and more.

      Thnx for the feedback.

    Thanks this helped a lot. I intensively dislike windows 2010 and email+excel 2013, thankfully I still have 2007 on my laptop at home

    is there a way we can push this change via GPO? I can’t seem to find an option in Outlook 2016 admx files.
