Weather is everywhere. So is weather information. It’s on TV, the radio, in newspapers, and especially prevalent on mobile devices, either through applications with alerts and alarms, or even with NOAA weather radar.
My iPhone has five different weather apps; a couple for current conditions, one for weather alerts, and a couple more for long term forecasts. I’ve even got one for earthquakes (we live in Georgia, so, you know; just in case). My Mac is a different story, though. I use Seaonality because it has so much weather data and details. But I also use the Mac’s best weather value app– WeatherMan.
What you get for 99-cents is remarkable. Weather in the Mac’s Menubar, weather in a floating window, weather in the Dock. A surprising number of options, including weather radar, alerts, extended forecasts, and much more. All for less than a buck. That’s a value.
WeatherMan can display current conditions and forecasts for a gazillion cities worldwide, but weather alerts and radar are for the U.S. only. Still, those alerts are similar to the ones found in iPhone and iPad weather apps (and priced about the same) but on the Mac.
That means alerts for Tornado, Thunderstorm, Flood, Blizzard, and the like, plus extended forecasts. It’s difficult to complain about how much you get for how little you pay.
