Template:Climate/sandbox
This is the template sandbox page for Template:Climate (diff). 
This template uses TemplateStyles: 
To have common look throughout all articles, this legacy template transforms into {{Climate chart}}. Similarly, also {{Weather box}} results in the same result and allows simple adding of wikipedia data.
As of now, only precipitation, snowfall and low/high air temperatures are shown in the graph. Both imperial and metric units are supported. If precipitation is too high and mangles the graph, add 'maxprecip' argument to clamp it down.
Quick howto
[edit]At a minimum, this template should be used to display average high and low temperatures. There's really no place where travellers wouldn't want to know the average temperatures. Here's what the climate chart for Dallol, Ethiopia, the hottest inhabited place on Earth, would look like:

Climate chart (explanation)  
 

If they're relevant, precipitation (which is technically defined as all forms of water: rain, snow, etc.) and snowfall can be shown too.
Of those, precipitation is often nice to have, and snowfall is useful in places with a lot of snow, especially in ski resorts and other places where people go to find snow.
Usage
[edit]Autogenerating
[edit]For U.S. destinations, http://mountaininterval.org/wikivoyage/climate.html can be used to automatically generate {{climate}} templates populated with data from the NOAA monthly normal dataset (19812010) that can then be copied into Wikivoyage articles.
Manual entry
[edit]Template parameters:
 title
 Table title. If the parameter is omitted, the article name will be displayed as the table title. If the parameter is included, but with no value, no title will be displayed.
 units
 Either "metric" or "imperial". Set units = Metric if the table is using Metric units (Celsius and centimeters) or to units = Imperial for Imperial units (Fahrenheit and inches). Please use units of measure appropriate to the location the page describes (Imperial in USA but Metric almost everywhere else) per Project:Measurements.
 align
 Either "right", "left", "center" or "none". Default is "right". A value of "none" will display the table inline.
 xxxhigh
 The average high temperature for the month, in °C (metric) or °F (imperial).
 xxxlow
 The average low temperature for the month, in °C (metric) or °F (imperial).
 xxxprecip
 The average rainfall amount for the month, in millimeters (metric) or inches (imperial).
 description
 maxprecip
 Maximum rainfall of any months  used to clamp the graph in case of extreme values that don't fit.
 Optional text that will be displayed at the bottom of the climate table. This field is often used to include the {{forecastNOAA}} daily forecast or other information related to the climate data.
Temperatures should be populated for every month, but for the other values (precipitation, snowfall), instead of 0 you can put a hyphen () to make it visually clearer that "there is no precipitation/snowfall this month". (See the example for McMurdo Station, Antarctica, above.)
Copy and paste the below wiki markup into a page and give values to as many of the parameters as you wish to use (empty parameters will be gracefully ignored by the template).

[edit] {{forecast/US}}  Given a latitude and longitude, this template will provide a link to a National Weather Service website that provides an uptodate weather forecast for the specified locale. This feature is only available for U.S. locales.
 {{forecast/AU}}  the same as {{forecast/US}}, but works for Australian locales instead.
 {{forecastNOAA}}  the same as {{forecast/US}}, but it is for inline use and only generates the link to the NOAA forecast.
Template data
[edit]This template formats simple climate info. Give it Metric or Imperial units of measure depending which is appropriate for the location you describe. Note: For US destinations http://mountaininterval.org/wikivoyage/climate.html can be used to automatically generate {{climate}} templates populated with data from the NOAA monthly normal dataset (19812010) that can then be copied into Wikivoyage articles.
