Macos Weather Menu Barrington

  • Forecast Bar is the next best thing to having Dark Sky on your Mac. Keep it in the menu bar or let it sit in your Dock. Enable certain notifications and display a three-day, five-day or seven-day forecast — up to you. With its detailed weather and range of customization options, it should very quickly take your Mac by storm.
    - George Tinari, Cult of Mac
  • Put an iPhone weather app in your Mac's menu bar. A fully customizable menu bar utility with a minimal, clean interface, it places a premium on simplicity to deliver an excellent snapshot of the world outside your window.
    - Michael Simon, Macworld
  • It’s a pretty powerful little weather app that’s customizable enough that just about anyone can find a use for it.
    - Thorin Klosowski, Lifehacker

Macos menu bar color

> How set/change the station in the today widget?
Set a favorite station as described above (star button). Currently only one station can be shown in the today widget. The widget uses the same airport as is shown in the menu bar. The today widget runs independently of the AeroWeather app. The app does not have to be open in order to use the widget.

> Why are not all features from AeroWeather on iOS implemented?
Due to the nature of the app (menu bar app) space is limited. However, more features will be added in future updates.

> How often are METAR/TAF updated?
Data is updated every ten minutes. You can manually update any time with refresh button (bottom left button).

> Can I transfer my stations from the iOS version of AeroWeather?
Yes, this is possible. The entire list can be exported as a group to iOS AeroWeather Pro. For backup files from iOS AeroWeather Pro only the first group will be imported. A group from iOS can either replace the existing list or be append to the existing list. Import/Export can also be used to just make a backup on the Mac version.
