Weather information is appreciated and sought after by many users, reason enough to have developers create a lot of dedicated applications and make them available to everyone. Most utilities of this kind rely on satellite and radar data to provide the latest weather conditions and Weather4U is no different.
This particular program offers a simple interface, with all the features at hand for users to get an accurate idea about the current forecast. The level of details brought by this tool should meet the needs of most users, as parameters like current temperature, high and low expected values, pressure, humidity, dew point, precise time of sunset and sunrise are displayed.
Wind speed and direction are among the parameters monitored by Weather4U and you can even get the exact latitude and longitude values for the selected place. There are two more types of forecast you can read, one for the following 2 days and another for a period of 5 days.
The location for which you can receive the information can be set by simply writing or selecting the zip code and optionally the state and the city. For those who are looking to check out the weather in a country other than the United States of America, the news are not so great, because only locations in USA are available.
The satellite and radar imagery is available in two formats, namely regular and animated. You have the possibility to choose any combination of the 3 available sources: radar, satellite and visible satellite.
Weather4U comes with some nice extras that are not related to its main purpose. Thus, it packs an Internet radio player, an MP3 player with playlist capabilities, as well as a tiny web browser that anyone can enjoy when not looking to get the weather forecast.
Quite easy to use and with sufficient features to help users make an idea about the current and upcoming atmospheric conditions, this software is well suited for those who live in the US or want to travel there and need an update on the weather.

Version 220.127.116.11 has been completely rewritten from the ground up to make it the best weather(free) software there is.
