Weather Forecasts with Weather Watcher

If you would like to take a look at up to date weather forecasts and weather reports for your location you might want to check out Weather Watcher. Weather Watcher displays all the relevant information that you would expect from a weather report application. You can choose to display the weather forecast for one of the more than 77000 cities that are stored in the program database.

Once that is done weather forecasts for today, tonight and tomorrow are displayed with information such as temperature, felt temperature, humidity, visibility, dew point, sunset and sundown. It is possible to display temperatures in Fahrenheit or Celsius as well as to convert other values as well.

A quick lookup on websites such as will do it for most users who just want to get a quick weather forecast but those users who rely on weather forecasts and check them regularly will love Weather Watcher. A nice feature is the ability to add a satellite view of a region that auto updates itself in a set interval.

Update: Weather Watcher is no longer a free program but a subscription based service that you need to pay $19 per year for to use the application.  The developers of the site make available a lifetime subscription license for $95.

There are free alternatives available that you can use for your weather reports instead. Mr. Weather is a lightweight program for Windows that can display weather information for any given location. It not only displays temperature and forecast, but also wind related information and conditions.

While it may not have the same pretty interface as Weather Watcher, it still handles the job very well and there is little in terms of functionality that you will miss when you use the program.

    I’ve been using the pocket pc version of this software since this summer. The weather updates via Wifi are downloaded very quickly. I was able to stay on top of the weather with this program loaded on my pda during my recent holiday.
    They also have a version available for smartphones as well.

    I have had this gem of a download for almost 2 years and I don’t think there’s any program that brings the Weather to you is within a million miles of Weather Watcher.

    It’s so well laid out, just a marvel to see them come up with little tweaks here and there, but my Gawd!!! – just a terrific little freebee……….
