Weather Watcher: Download Of The Day

Today's download has been around for a while. But, like anything that has been around for a long time, you need fill in the people that missed it the first time around.

Weather Watcher is a light java application that is basically a full-blown weather station for your desktop. This thing has a ton of options as well. You can customize how often it updates, what cities to watch, and you can even set the program as your wallpaper.

What Weather Watcher basically does is tell you the present and extended forecast for your selected city. It will also let you know the current temperature, wind direction and speed, and barometric pressure and weather it is rising or falling. Simply hover your mouse over the day of the week in which you want to know more details about that day's weather.

It doesn't get more easy than that, for arguments sake that is. Weather Watcher will also minimize to the task tray if you hit the red "X" in the top right-hand corner, it will not close the program. Minimized in the tray, Weather Watcher will let you know what the current temperature is, also. Hover over that temp to see what the current conditions are.

This is a great program that will meet your weather needs throughout the day. It is also much more speedy than that slow poke of a weather man that makes you watch the entire news program to see what the extended forecast is. Something to help that curious wife out late at night.
