WeatherPop - A menubar weather monitor
Authored by: sfodden on Jan 10, '05 11:37:06AM

If you're not in the U.S., chances are that the forecasts produced by weather.com, wunderground.com and other U.S. sources will be wrong. For Toronto the current temp. is often correct, but the five day forecasts are wildly inaccurate, at least as judged agains the Environment Canada forecasts. I've done up a little chart for today's forecasts, just to show you what I mean. You can view it at:

It may be that Environment Canada doesn't have a feed that works for weather app developers, but unless that's so, I'd sure love to see someone in Canada do it right.

The question is, though, which one is accurate? Do you have the data for the actual temps for those days?
