Icon dWeather 1.5

A cocoa java utility to look up the local forecast from weather.com using your 5 digit zip code. This will give you both the current weather conditions as well as a weekly forecast. I wrote this software because I didn't want a docklet or a toolbar application that is running all the time. I find this is a waste of resources and is also often buggy.

icon Lightsoft Weather Center 0.5.1

Lightsoft Weather Center (LWC) is a weather graphing, monitoring and analysis application for Mac OS X. LWC is designed to work with hardware based weather stations (currently Davis Vantage range and La Crosse WS23xx range supported) as well as using Internet based weather sources to monitor two other locations.
As data is gathered and stored in its database LWC allows you to view weather statistics such as the lowest temperature, or the highest wind speed over any time period stored in the database. In addition LWC contains a journal for weather notes and can generate web pages containing current conditions, graphs, statistics and a web-cam image. LWC can upload these web pages to your server for display via a web browser anywhere in the world. LWC also supports uploading to Wunderground Personal Weather Station pages, CWOP, custom web page processing for more complex web pages and close to real time custom CGI upload.
LWC also monitors the weather and can run a set of pre-defined and user programmed alerts that can trigger emails, send SMS messages to your mobile phone and/or run scripts should an alert trigger.

Icon wview 3.2.1

wview is a collection of linux/unix daemons which interface with a supported weather station to retrieve archive records (if generated by the station) and current conditions. The stations currently supported are:
* Davis Vantage Pro/Pro2
* Vaisala WXT-510
* Station Simulator

If the station does not generate archive records internally, wview will auto-generate archive records based on the sensor readings collected for that interval. The archive records are stored in the Davis WLK file format (thus Weatherlink-generated archive files can often be used by wview). At a configurable interval, wview will utilize the archive history and current conditions to generate weather images (buckets, dials and graphs) and HTML web pages based on user-configurable HTML templates.

Icon Wx 5.3.1

Wx is a specialized internet weather app for Mac OS X that downloads and processes weather information and forecasts for the United States. The software links to free XML data on the internet from the US National Weather Service, and presents it in an attractive user-friendly interface. Wx can be configured to track weather conditions, watches/warnings/advisories, live radar, and forecast information for up to 20 locations, and it can download up to 20 weather maps or images. Optional add-ons allow each user to customize Wx for their lifestyle, hobbies, and activities. Wx downloads data on-demand, and can be configured to download data automatically on a periodic basis. Current weather conditions are summarized in the app's dock icon and dock menu, a floating "MiniWx" panel, and a Quartz screensaver. Wx can also export settings for an iPhone, allowing it to use the iPhoneWx web app.

New in Wx 5 is "iPhoneWx", a web app that displays Wx locations and maps on your iPhone. Here's how it works -- set up weather locations and maps in Wx. Then, choose "iPhoneWx Export" from the Wx menu and export an iPhoneWx bookmark to Safari. Hook your iPhone up to your computer, sync your bookmarks, and that's it! Just tap the iPhoneWx bookmark in Safari on your iPhone, and have access to your own custom weather center anywhere you go (wi-fi or EDGE access required).
