06-06-2011 00-57-08There is no shortage of weather gadgets, and I have tried most of them.  Ultimately, the most accurate weather reports for Canada come from ‘The Weather Network, so I have had a tendency to use TWN’s own gadget.

Now, this is all very good for me, but what if you live in a place where TNW is not so accurate or you do not like the look of the ‘weather’ station gadgets which gives you the most accurate reports?

Enter the ‘Weather Center’..

As you can see from the graphic, it is night time here (hence the black background), 19°C, reasonably humid, it is going to be a nice day tomorrow, and all info is courtesy of The Weather Network.

It can be toggled to show only current weather, or you can add data windows as I have done. The current weather state at the top of the graphic always reflects what is happening outside, and the windows will also show an appropriate graphic which best reflects weather for the period being shown.

The second window can be customized  to show ‘feels like, wind speed, humidity, actual pressure and pressure state, any order.

The general background also changes colour, so tomorrow it will be a rather pleasing shade of blue.

Assuming that you like the look (there is a plain background too), you can choose from any of these weather providers:

  • Weather.com
  • Accuweather.com
  • Wunderground.com
  • MSN.com
  • Weatherbug.com
  • Weather.gov (US Only)
  • Weathernetwork.com
