Another alternative: You Control
Authored by: tcurtin on Jan 18, '05 05:27:53PM

I tried a few of the weather apps, including what had been pthWeather (or something like that - it was free at the time.) It merged into a YouControl module, and I ended up paying for the full package. You can't get a radar map with it, but you can literally get just about everything else. (Weather in multiple cities, sunrise + sunset, pressure, visibility, 10-day forecast, yadda yadda.) Plus weather is only one of its tricks - scrolling stock ticker, rss newsfeeds, clock, calendar and address book access, multiple paste buffers, itunes control, hotkeys... All configurable like you wouldn't believe. Its $50, but it replaced so many different utilities and the trial (and since) has been so stable, I figured what the hell. Worth a look anyway: http://www.yousoftware.com/control/

(And nope, not with the company, just a satisfied customer.)

Whee! YMMV...
