If you’re looking for an application to bring the forecast right in your System Tray, Weather Center comes to the rescue.
Especially designed to display the current temperature near the Tray clock, Weather Center can also display the moon phase after sunset, while also providing some other details on the forecast.
A simple left-click on the System Tray icon launches a new window holding information on the configured location, such as weather conditions, current temperature, feels like and humidity, winds, visibility, UV index and pressure.
Right-clicking it however opens a whole new menu that lets you see the forecast for the next five days, along with many other useful details.
The System Tray icon however is being used to show the current temperature level, with a few customization options available to configure the font, colors and position in the Tray.
What’s more, Weather Center can also speak the current time and weather conditions, while also offering multiple weather icon sets to choose from.
Although it’s supposed to run all the time, Weather Center doesn’t slow down the system at all, but an Internet connection is obviously needed to retrieve the latest weather information.
It works like a charm on all Windows versions and it doesn’t ask for administrator privileges, which means that it can be easily installed on both older and newer workstations. A help manual is also available to assist users in figuring out how to use the program.
Overall, Weather Center is clearly one of the best ways to bring the weather forecast in your System Tray, although we’re not quite satisfied with the way the Tray icon looks. On the other hand, it’s stable and reliable and it doesn’t affect system performance at all.
