This lesson will teach you to design purely CSS animated weather icons. It will be quite interesting and fun to create the icons of weather in which we enjoy our life.
So, let us begin with creating simple HTML structure. Since today we are going to create a sun, cloud, rainy cloud, snowy cloud, rainbow, starry moon and stormy cloud, therefore, we would take a separate class for each of the icons.
It's time to create a CSS structure for designing of the icons. The container class holds all the elements so it provides kind of a background and hence it is given a background color. Next, the styling starts with the sun which is on the extreme left side of the design. Using after selector the sun rays are created and the transform property in the keyframe makes it to rotate 360 degrees. Further, all the clouds and the rainbow is designed using box shadow property which creates a shapes and set the position of different parts together. The rain, snow and thunder effects are created using selector after and before. And, the movements of icons are mainly due to the applied animations that are used along with the keyframes that set the origin of the animation.
The weather icons are helpful in creating beautiful landscapes.
