Here’s a list of 5 best weather forecast software for Windows 10 which you can use to receive updates about the weather on your Windows 10 powered desktop. There’s a lot of desktop apps of this type out there, but what I was wondering is how many of them will work on Windows 10, the upcoming version of Windows, the successor of Windows 8 (they skipped 9).
Following 5 worked OK, and should be possible to use after upgrading to Windows 10.
Weather Meter is a very functional weather forecast software for Windows 10. It’s actually a weather widget, the same type of a desktop widget like the ones that were available in older versions of Windows. Weather Meter makes it possible for you to enjoy in these same widgets which were removed from Windows starting with Windows 7.
Select a city by right clicking on the widget and selecting Options. Only one option can be tweaked, the name of the city for which you’d like to receive weather updates.
Get Weather Meter.
The Weather Channel Desktop
The Weather Channel Desktop is the official weather forecast software published by the Weather Channel website.
It offers a lot of info and options, as you can see from the screenshot above. Entire application can be minimized to the system tray. When you run it for the first time, you’ll be offered with a dialog box for selecting the location for which you’d like to receive weather update. You get hourly, 36 hour, 3 day or weekend weather forecast predictions.

YoWindow 4 makes weather forecast more interactive by recreating the weather conditions that the selected location has inside its window. Here you’ll also going to be asked which city you’d like to keep track of after running the app for the first time.
Only 3 day forecast is available in the free version. Notice in the background of the screenshot that the app is mimicking current weather for the selected city (New York).
Get YoWindow 4.
My Free Weather
My Free Weather is a feature rich weather forecast application for Windows 10, with system tray minimization and a very nice looking interface. It fetches current weather info and a 5 day weather forecast from the Weather Channel.
After running the app for the first time you’ll need to setup a location for which you’d like to keep track of the weather. There are actual thermometers, for example, for displaying the temperature graphically.

WeatherEye is another full-fledged weather forecast software for Windows, where you can get 5 day weather forecast and something called a 14 day trend, which is sort of like a “light” 2 week weather forecast.
Weather info is pulled from the WeatherNetwork, applications own website. Other information that’s available includes satellite and radar photos, viewer submitted photos for the selected location, video and more.
Two applications caught my eye the most from the list above, WeatherEye and My Free Weather. They seem the most polished up and functional. Give them all a try, see which app you like the most, and then explain yourself in the comment section down below.
