Remember the symbols you see on the above table will be different when you see them on the office documents. Because the browser displays the symbols differently than the offline applications. In addition, the symbols may vary on the operating systems like Windows 7, 8 or 10, macOS and the font type you are using on the document.

If you don’t see the symbol on your document, the best way is to copy paste and check the font. Generally on Windows the font for symbols is Wingdings and on Mac it should be Symbol font. Then you can set the required font for inserting further symbols. After inserting weather symbols, you can easily customize by applying different colors and increase or decrease the size. Below is the examples of some symbols with different background and sizes.
