Weather Watcher Live is a desktop weather application for Windows*. It can connect you to thousands of weather stations from all across the world. It’s a convenient way to access current weather conditions, weather forecasts and weather maps all from one place.
You’ll no longer have to visit various weather websites, open your newspaper, or wait for your local news station to discuss weather that is usually not so local to you. With a few clicks, you can quickly access a nearby weather station and see your local current conditions, forecasts, maps, and severe weather.
Temperature Right Now
Weather Watcher Live connects you to weather stations that are streaming temperature data in real time. View your local temperature (top number) and feels like temperature (bottom number) in the thermometer bulb. Watch the numbers update as the temperature changes at your selected weather station.
Quickly plan your day with the overview of today’s weather. Need more detailed information? Then check out the daily and hourly weather forecasts.

Severe Weather Alerts
