If you’re from the Midwest you know not to complain about the current weather conditions. Just wait an hour and it’ll change to something else. For something we have no control over, everyone, everywhere pays attention to the weather.
Here’s how to do it right from your Mac and it won’t cost a dime.
The Mac As Meteorologist
They say everyone complains about the weather, but no one does anything about it. That’s true. If we could do something about the weather, what would it be?
For Mac users smart enough to recognize that the weather cannot be changed but should be observed and occasionally enjoyed, there’s the free Meteorologist app.
Click on the weather icon the Mac’s Menubar and you’re greeted with a pop down menu display of what we like to grumble about when it comes to weather.
Setup geographic locations in Meteorologist’s preferences. Click the Menubar icon to reveal the current conditions and forecasts for the primary city.
Select another city on the list and reveal yet another pop out with those local weather conditions.
Having weather conditions just a click away makes it seem as if you have a meteorologist working for you.
The Meteorologist app works from the Dock, too. And, it comes with a number of display and customization options.
The latest version has built-in radar screens to match the extended forecast. And, yes, it does both Celsius or Fahrenheit.
The claim to fame with Meteorologist is the price to function ratio. There’s no price, and there’s plenty of functionality.
You won’t be able to use Meteorologist to control the weather, but no matter what the weather is at the moment, or is likely to be in the next few days, you get the whole shebang, for better or worse, with a click to the Menubar.
