Editors' reviewThis free application provides a smorgasbord of weather-related information and a healthy set of features. Weather Exchange shows a variety of local, regional, and global maps, some of which can be animated. However, the interface does display some distracting ads and cannot be resized to a full-screen view. Entering your ZIP code or city lets you check out the local radar, and you even can see details such as the temperature, dew point, and wind speed in select neighborhoods. Clicking over to the Maps section reveals that this program hasn't forgotten the big picture. After choosing a continent, you then can view colorful maps that display information such as temperature, wind chill, humidity, UV rating, fronts, and heat index. You'll find a section that details pending natural disasters, and you even can set a number of alarms to alert you when a certain condition changes. We can see how Weather Exchange will be useful to just about any user, but those with an intense interest in meteorology are sure to be especially pleased.
The Weather Exchange is a free PC desktop application that accesses live community weather from the world's largest free personal weather station network. The Weather Exchange also provides up to the minute forecasts, radar, warnings, and detailed weather maps, keeping you instantly informed of any changes in the weather. The Weather Exchange displays a tremendous array of real-time and animated regional and national weather maps. Colored coded temperature, wind chill, humidity, dew point, UV, wind, jet stream, radar, visibility, satellite, fronts, snow, and air-quality maps turn even the casual weather observer into a meteorologist.
The Weather Exchange sounds personal alarms you set based on wind speed, wind chill, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, rainfall, dew point, and heat index, each customized for your favorite station or network of stations. The Weather Exchange hides away, and can display the temperature and weather advisory/alarm level on your taskbar.
