Weather Watcher 5.6.53
Your personal Windows desktop weather station
Among the many tools of this kind available out there, there's Weather Watcher, a rather popular utility developed exclusively to help you find out the forecast for a certain area without spending too much time reading useless information.
Besides the fact that it can provide severe weather alerts, this program can show you the current weather conditions, the 46-hour forecast plus the 10-day day and night forecast for the selected locations.
A neat feature of Weather Watcher is it's ability to display maps for analyzing the way in which the weather is evolving in a certain region.
Users who want to track weather easier can choose to add a System Tray icon with the current temperature, while the customization options can provide some detailed information such a detailed summary of the current weather conditions.
Weather Watcher comes with a very rich interface that shows a lot of details regarding the weather, including humidity, dew point, visibility, sunrise, sunset, wind and precipitation chances.
An interesting and positive aspect we found during our test is the diversity of options you can customize from the settings menu. It basically enables you to change everything about the app, including skins, maps, sounds, tray icon behavior and wallpapers.
All things considered, Weather Watcher is one of the best choices you can make when it comes to this type of utility. The wide array of configurations and the up to date information it brings, coupled with the ease of use can turn this application into a must have tool for a lot of users.
