Delivers live weather to your PC Desktop
When it comes to the interface, the program is well organized, so both beginners and experts users can easily learn how to get around.
In the "Home" section, you can view exclusive live conditions and a forecast. You can also view radars and maps, severe weather news (local and national alerts, lightning, air quality, hurricanes, custom alerts) and live cameras (local, city, traffic cameras, and more).
Furthermore, you can read news on the weather (plus features, stories etc) and news concerning outdoor health (e.g. air quality, UV index, allergies, snow and ski, green living, cold and flu), as well as view travel weather via an interactive map (plus backyard network, traffic cameras etc).
In addition, you can unwind by accessing features found in "Weather Fun" (e.g. trivia and facts, space and science), or access a photo and video gallery.
On the upper part of the window, you have some options, such as "Site Map", "Preferences" and "Help". So, you can disable on-screen visual tips and description, select temperature scale and color, as well as set how often you want your location's temperature to be shown in the taskbar.
You can easily disable forecast tooltips, icon and sound notification, activate notification silence time, configure proxy settings, adjust audio alerts, and more.
The program uses a low amount of system resources, comes with a well-drawn online help file and didn't cause us any trouble during our tests.
However, the biggest disadvantage it has is the fact that it can only display the conditions for locations from the United States. Even so, WeatherBug is a very accurate tool for displaying weather information.
