  1. Looking for a fresh way to check your local weather forecast? Drake will take care of you.

    Fresh off his widely-praised Saturday Night Live hosting debut, the Canadian rapper is blowing up in the meteorology game this week thanks to three creative developers who've used his likeness for a new weather site, drakeweather.com.

    The premise of the website is simple: log on from anywhere in the world to get your local forecast next to a giant portrait of Drake's head, taken from the cover of his album Nothing was the Same.

    The sky in the background of the image changes to represent your location's current conditions, from "broken clouds" to "sky is clear" and "mist."
  2. Much like the Toronto-born rapper, who has residences in both Canada and the United States, the website displays temperatures in Celcius and Fahrenheit.

    "Weather reports are great. DRAKE weather reports are AWESOME," wrote one of drakeweather.com's designers, Belgian Bert Vermeire, in his portfolio. "A bit of tongue-in-cheek fun with album art."

    While Drake himself has yet to comment on the project, many around the web are loving it.  

    Just days after the website's launch, hundreds of screenshots and photos taken by drakeweather.com fans can be found on Instagram and Twitter.
