Weather and Boosted Types

Weather is another important factor in Pokemon GO. Depending on the type of weather in the game, certain Pokemon types will appear more frequently, you will receive bonus stardust for capturing Pokemon of those types, and attacks of that type will be boosted in battle.

The weather in the real world should reflect the weather in Pokemon GO. Click the kite icon at the top-right corner of the screen to see what types are currently boosted, or refer to the list below.
