Your Mac comes prepared with its own widget for you to check the weather, and it works just fine, but sometimes you want something more accurate, with more features, or perhaps that works through your menu bar or your desktop instead of in your widgets.
Today we are presenting you some of the most popular weather apps available for your Mac. These will range from simple menu bar apps to real pieces of art with animations and other visual flair. Take a look!
Weather applications fill an interesting niche on any app platform. They function as informative eye candy on smartphone home screens, essential additions on desktop enhancement applications like Geek Tool and life savers for people who have pristine internet access but, evidently, no windows.

Only one way to find out.
