    Thanks. This is obviously a bug in Outlook, it really should have defaulted to the current locale, and when this is “Metric” it should definitely have shown Celcius and km/h without any more fuss (and BTW they did even not get the abbreviation right, they say “km/hr” !!)

      I’m suprised they even know what metric is. 😉

      Ironic that Americans declare their independence from the Monarchy and over two hundred years later still cling to an Imperial unit of measure…

      I agree, it should read the locale for this. But (at least) in sea wheather forecasting wind speed is usually measured with m/s, not km/h.

    Thank you, that was useful.
    But it’s rather disturbing to find that when I swap between Fahrenheit and Celcius, the icon for the weather forecast changes from showers to cloudy with sunny spells!

    Thanks so much for this. I know I’m going to be getting calls from our user community on this one! lol

    Thanks for this. I don’t know why MS didn’t allow you to change this by clicking on the weather bar itself, instead of having to navigate through all those menus…!
