WeatherMan grabs and displays weather information for cities worldwide.
Weather three ways for as many cities as you'd like.
Check out the screen shot!
Using data from the National Weather Service, WeatherMan shows...
• Current Conditions
• Extended Forecasts - Highs, Lows, Chance of precipitation, etc.
• Weather Alerts - Severe and general alerts like Tornado, Thunderstorm, Flood, Blizzard, etc. (US Cities Only)
• Radar - Current NexRad radar images - Animated, if you like. (US Cities Only)
• Custom Images - Can pull images from the web using any URL including satellite images
To add a new city use the "File Menu" or application preferences.
See the AfterTen website for a simple quick start guide.
AppleScript support - Using AppleScript extract the weather data to use in other applications.

What's New in Version 2.6.1
Minor bug fixes to stop some crashes.
New update seems to be more stable. Please make this mac-worthy!
Attention other developers: please make a mac-worthy version of this app and you'll have a ton of customers right away! By mac-worthy I mean having clean Retina graphics, no crashes, not becoming unresponsive if a full screen app is used and absence of a general clunkiness of behavior. However, please retain all the information this app displays which is why I stick to it despite its general lacklustre feel. You can also add hourly forecasts :)
Update: Please please bring retina screen compatibility! This works well on both on my old 32 bit snow leopard machine as well as on mountain lion, apart from the little bug where it freezes after using the full-screen mode in certain apps lime Skim and needs to be invoked again using a launcher/Finder.
Old review: This is a worthy replacement for WeatherDock, and the best menu weather app in the store that I know of. It pulls a lot of details from the weather service and I find it to be one of the more useful apps on my machine. I wish that it also had an option to view an hour-by-hour forecast.
I wish it worked better :-(
It's a great app in concept, but I regrettably had to uninstall it tonight after spending many, many months waiting for it to improve. With the most recent version, I noticed the fan running almost constantly in my MacBook Pro; checking Activity Monitor, WeatherMan is always using 99% of the processor. I can't burn up my laptop over a weather app, unfortunately, so it must go.
This comes after enduring a myriad other issues with the app which were livable (if not great). But this processor-hogging was the last straw. I'm looking for another app.
I've used WeatherMan for some time, and have found that the updates have continuously improved the performance. I can add almost any location that I want and get accurate weather forecasts. When I've had problems, emails to the developer have resulted in vast improvements. I don't understand the negative reviews on this site. As far as I'm concerned, this is the most useful weather app. I've seen.
