Get the best weather on the web in a desktop widget with the AccuWeather.com Stratus, powered by Adobe AIR. This easy-to-download and fun-to-use widget provides current conditions and a five-day forecast for just about any location around the world, as well as severe weather alerts and WeatherAlarms for upcoming extreme weather conditions.
Can set for almost anywhere in the world. Shows current temperature, day or night conditions, degrees F or C, forecast for 5 days & other options. Transluscent on your desktop, until you hover youre mouse over it. Drag & position wherever you want.
Puts an annoying logo in your system tray. There's also an obtrusive logo under the onscreen display. The days on the 5 day forecast could show clearer. If you prefer the 5 day forecast you lose it when you log off, & must reselect it again.
On balance, I found some of its features rather irksome, particularly having to reset it to how I wanted it every time I logged on. I did not like seeing the logo in my tray all the time, & the name under the widget could be more subtlle. I also found its accuracy doubtful - of course, it could only be as good as the information received from meteorological stations, but nevertheless its forecast for the next couple of days was at variance with the one I saw on tv.
