Mr Weather -- Free Weather Tray Application
If you are looking for an easy-to-use, light on resources weather application for your Windows desktop, you'll want to consider Mr. Weather. It's amazing how heavy some desktop weather applications can get. Besides current conditions and a forecast, many weather applications are set up to display ads, weather maps, videos, etc., etc. That's great if you want all that, but its overkill if you just want to discover current conditions and the current forecast. Mr. Weather puts an idea in the notification area (aka "system tray") of your Windows taskbar that pops up a small box with the current conditions and a two day forecast when you click on it. Very basic, but that's really all the average person is likely to need. Mr. Weather is very light is the system resources used department. Weather junkies will probably want larger and more complete weather apps.
Setup is easy. Install Mr. Weather, enter your location (zip code, city or even major landmark) and how often you want Mr. Weather to update and you are ready to go. Dead simple and it just works.
