"Ever find yourself watching The Weather Channel incessantly
during the winter months, or hanging a thermometer outside your
window for easy access? Wouldn't it be cool and oh-so-technical to
somehow use your Linux computer to monitor the weather, without
having to make any major changes at all?"
"You can. The National Weather Service provides a system of
continuous weather monitoring in American cities for aviators to
use. The weather information in METAR code can be obtained easily
over the Internet, meaning that it's possible to use your Linux
desktop and 'net connection to get continuous weather
"One such application for GNOME users is the GNOME Weather panel
applet. Installing it is easy using the standard method:
./configure; make; make install
Once installed and launched, it will provide a cute little panel
applet with an icon (like a sun behind a cloud) indicating current
weather conditions and a temperature reading."
