It’s either too hot, or too cold, or too something. We have a saying in Atlanta– ‘If you don’t like the weather now, just wait an hour.’ It changes fast enough and often enough that we’ve become bona fide weather watchers. Here’s how.
Seasons By Seasonality
Mac users have plenty of weather apps which do more or less the exact same thing. You get a temperature, current conditions, and a three to seven day forecast.
What you don’t get in most weather apps is radar and satellite data, a timeline of weather conditions, and quick look graphics so you can see what’s happening, where, and when.
Our favorite Mac weather app is Seasonality Core. This is the weather app for weather watchers.
Not only does it provide updated weather information to more than 34-thousand locations in over 200 countries, it does so with modern graphics and instant updates.
The claim to fame in Seasonality Core is where it does weather differently. You get to see weather conditions changing over days, months, and years because it collects and stores weather data.
For North America weather watchers Seasonality features a unique satellite and radar image with adjustable opacity overlays. And, it’s in high resolution.
Select as many weather locations (cities) as you need. They’re displayed in the lefthand sidebar.
Then, over time, Seasonality collects data and gives you historical data, including graphs and charts, so you can see weather patterns.
Historical data is nice, of course, but no decent weather app is worth a dime if it doesn’t have weather watches and warnings so you can see what’s coming.
Once you’ve used Seasonality Core for a few weeks you’ll see why we’re so high on it (I’ve been tracking Atlanta suburban weather for a few years). If there’s a negative to use Seasonality, it’s the lack of information about how to use the app’s features. There’s a lot of trial and error going on here, but at least it’s informative and useful.
