GKRELLM WEATHER APPLET


With a long weekend like this one, only one thing is super important: no rain and lots of sunshine !

For anyone interested in the weather outside whilst sitting at his computer, the Gkrellm Weather plugin is easy to configure.
( Gkrellm, my favorite system-monitors, see link at bottom of this tip. )

Get the 4 letter station ID at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/tg/siteloc.shtml of your regional weather station. Choose the way you want the wind speed to show ( km/h, m/s or beaufort ).

And it will show :
- Temperature, Relative Humidity
- DewPoint, Pressure (altimeter)
- Wind Direction, Wind Speed
- Sky Condition (if available)
- The Name of the Station

If you´re ever stuck for things to talk about, the weather sure is a topic.

PS: You will find the Gkrellm system monitors and plugins on your CD or Here
