Sometimes I’m stuck in the office and don’t have opportunity to check the weather outside. So I’m just sitting there oblivious to the storm brewing outside. Singer’s program Weather Watcher Live is a great take on a weather application for your desktop.
Weather Watcher Live is your personal, real-time Windows desktop weather station. View real-time weather conditions in your neighborhood from WeatherBug weather stations, or as reported by NWS.
Weather Watcher Live is able to automatically retrieve current conditions hourly forecasts even severe weather alerts. You can even always view the current conditions by hovering your mouse over the Weather Watcher Live system tray icon.
Like most weather applications you can set it up to automatically retrieve weather data at set intervals and even change what you’re system tray icon shows at any given time. This great application even has a ton of contributors livening up the interface by supplying icons and skins.
Weather Watch Live currently only works on later builds of Windows. 98 and above.
