The feature is now live on the Windows Insider channels, meaning the change to the widget will also come in the 23H2 release. So you’ll soon be able to get a detailed weather forecast and plan your day accordingly. Or, at least, you’ll know not to go to those sudden shopping sessions, as there will be rain in 30 minutes.

You won’t have to do anything to enable the detailed weather forecast in Windows 11, as it is part of the widget. For a more handy situation, you might want to place the weather widget on your taskbar so that you won’t miss any information.
