Flat, single-colour icons might be what your after and thats cool but with Forecast font you have all the flexibility to colour, style or even animate various parts of the icons. Create something a little different from the norm. Even better they are fully scalable for use on all devices, no need to create cumbersome image sprites or use multiple images to create your weather icons.
Icon fonts are great because, as you may have guessed, they are delivered as a font. This gives them a number of advantages over traditional image icons.

Scaling and adding effects, such as shadows, is just as simple.
