As a lifelong New Yorker, I can say with all due respect that I hate the weather here. Sure, there are a few days in May and June that are just wonderful. And, late September and early October may have a few good days, too.
The rest of the year New York is too hot, too cold, too damp, or too something. Is it any wonder that weather forecasts are the most watched portion of local news, and that TV viewership goes up when the weather is bad?
Because I travel often I have to check the weather often. It’s possible to fall in love with the weather, but you need a Mac app to do it. My latest find is RadarScope. It’s what you think it is. Weather radar on the Mac.
Displayed right on your Mac’s screen in near real-time is the NEXRAD Level 3 weather radar data, severe weather warnings, and much more.
You’ll see severe thunderstorm activity, tornadoes, flash flood warnings, all as issued by the National Weather Service. You can zoom into all the maps, check any of the 155 different radar sites, and even animate radar data like a movie.
If you love eye candy, you’ll love RadarScope.
Unfortunately, all you’re getting is current weather radar conditions and warnings– not weather forecasts and conditions detail.
Between RadarScope and Wx my Mac gives me weather conditions, a visual look at weather radar, and forecasts.
