The weather is often a funny thing. No one ever, EVER seems to get it right until its nearly right on top of you. However, keeping track of it, knowing what the weather may be, is something that most everyone wants to know. This is one of the biggest reasons why I like Weather Bug. It’s a multi-platform weather utility.
Weather Bug desktop helps you keep track of current, local weather conditions, extended forecasts, and severe weather alters. Its animated Doppler radar maps are exceptionally valuable in severe weather conditions, as are its satellite and temperature maps. The best thing about Weather Bug desktop is that it works on just about any computer you can throw at it.
On the Windows side, Weather Bug has its traditional desktop app, but also desktop gadgets for both Windows Vista and Windows 7 Side Bars. On the mac, Weather Bug Alert for Mac provides live temperatures and desktop alerts. On both platforms ,you’ll have access to live, local current conditions, 7-day, hourly and weekend forecasts, animated radar and maps as well as severe weather alters.
Weather Bug is a great application suite. It provides a great service and very valuable information. Its gadgets, may or may not be working any longer, as of this writing, Microsoft has ended support for its Side Bar due to security concerns. The rest of its components, however, are fine and again, provide valuable information. This is a must have app on any Mac or Windows PC.
