Next, let's configure what data we want to show on the widget. To begin with, choose the number of days you would like to show. You can choose to show 1-5 days, include a map on your site and choose whether to display the title or not.

In addition, there's an option of 'include base styles'. By including base styles, the widget will include CSS to style it on your page. You can override any sites yourself, or if you would like to create your own, simply uncheck this option and include the styles in your own CSS on your website.
