Windows 7 Weather gadget?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Are there any good sidebar weather gadgets for Windows 7 that people can suggest? I have the one that comes bundled, but it is awful. It never, ever has the right weather, it's like it randomly makes it up.

At the moment it says I am bathed in sun... where as it looks like it might rain soon. You cannot change the source either.

So, any other good sidebar gadgets for weather out there?

It takes weather from MSN. For me it seems pretty accurate


Haven't tried looking for any other ones, but if you find one, I'll check it out

I would like one that uses BBC information, however, I did fine one but it's a nightmare to get it running on Windows 7 64bit

weather.com has one that worked well for me.
But then again, the one that comes with Windows works also.

Not bad, works quite well. Shame it doesn't show a full 3 day forecast like the basic Windows one does.

I use the WeatherBug gadget. Has current stats, three day forecast (7 day after link), and current radar (animated after link).

I had the Met Office one running in vista 64, is that the one you tried? But I didn't like it much.

What skin is this? And how do I replicate it? I just installed Rainmeter 3.0 on Win 7.
