I used to use weatherbug on windows about 2 years ago, before
switching to lynx and I also think that
weatherbug has great local weather reporting, and the only things I
didn't like about it were that it could have been a bit more
accessible with window-eyes, and the popup ads of course (smile). Two
years ago, I tried searching for "weatherbug" on freshmeat, but didn't
find anything. I'm fairly happy with right
now, but if anyone does know of a gnu/linux text console client for
weatherbug, I'd also be interested in hearing about it.
