For a different perspective about weather-related applications,
take a peek at the Norwegian Met office free-access portal: http://yowindow.com

Doesn`t work for me in Windows 8.1. Appears for a second then disappears off screen.

WeatherMate 4.3 finally working under XP.
(just ignore the "Cannot create application shortcuts" warning)

During initial run, a tiny temperature icon is created in the system tray.
Thereafter, right click the icon to set personal options, such as position of main WM43 window, local preferences, forecasts display periods and so on.

Nifty app.

I don't like this one at all, but it is portable.

Just downloaded the app and played around with it for a bit. Love it! Extremely functional and gives me a quick summary for a number of selected cities around the world.

You can choose what columns to display, metric or not, sorting, reports... lightweight - runs like the wind... nice!

Extremely fast and lightweight. Use this more than any other weather app. Makes it easy to compare weather reports from multiple areas.
