As a Chicagoland native I find Midwest weather to be among the worst on planet earth. Sure, there are places with worse weather. Siberia, Antarctica, and Seattle come to mind. Here in Chicago it’s just too much of what you don’t want at the moment. Too cold, too hot, too humid, too dry, too wet, too many bugs.
As a lifelong Chicago soul who spends too much time slaving over a hot keyboard nowhere near a window, I like to know what it’s like outside. That’s what Temps does. It’s a Menubar weather app that works with a personal weather station.*
Like most weather apps Temps displays detailed weather information for up to a dozen cities from up to three personal weather stations. Click the Menubar for forecasts, current conditions, and a few more useful pieces of weather related information (sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset, humidity, cloud cover, barometric pressure, precipitation and more).
That’s about all the weather information you need, especially for those of us who live in a climate where changing weather is like a changing opinion. It happens too fast. Temps doesn’t display a seven or 10-day forecast, though (because it’s likely to change before then anyway), but does break down the day into Night, Morning, Afternoon, and Evening which tends to be more accurate.
*I mention the option to use Natatmo weather stations because we have a couple. One outdoors, one indoors. And Temps works with each. Natatmo also works with your iPhone and is worth a look if weather is an issue where you live. It’s as if Apple created a personal weather station for Mac and iPhone users.
