You can use the Evergage Weather API to target people experiencing certain current weather conditions, temperatures, or wind speeds. Once the API is configured on your site (contact Evergage Support for assistance), you can create campaign-wide or experience-level rules for different categories of current conditions, like rain or snow, temperature ranges, or wind speed ranges. These rules are applied based on an overall condition like "thunderstorm," which includes specific subcategories such as "thunderstorm with light rain" or "thunderstorm with heavy drizzle" that are defined in the Weather Condition Targets section below.

This Article Explains

This article provides instructions for using weather as a target users rule and details the subcategories that fall under each weather condition.
