The Weather Channel Desktop Specifications
Local conditions, severe-weather alerts, radar, and forecasts on your desktop.
Instant access to real-time local weather information is one of the Internet's underrated pleasures. There are Web sites, feeds, gadgets, widgets, e-mail and IM alerts; just about every Net platform has brought you the weather at some point. Free desktop utilities that import weather conditions and usually display the local temperature in the system tray are perhaps the most popular Web-based weather-watchers. The Weather Channel is perhaps the most trusted name in coast-to-coast cable TV weather forecasting and related information. Put the two together and you have The Weather Channel Desktop, a free utility that does what the other weather gadgets do, but much more. But, though free, to download and use, its versatility comes at a price: advertising.
Receive local weather information and alerts from The Weather Channel on your desktop.
