AccuWeather.com Stratus is an Adobe Air-driven weather widget. It is an application that sits on top of all windows on your desktop and shows you weather information obtained from AccuWeather.com. The app is about 100 pixels by 100 pixels in size and can be easily moved by clicking on it and dragging it around.
It is very responsive and the movement is smooth.

AccuWeather.com Stratus takes the form of a transparent square, wherein you will see the current temperature, the set location, and the high and low temperature for the day. If you click on the icon that reads "5" with an open notebook beside, you will be able to see a 5-day forecast which will appear below the current temperature. You can't really configure the application, however, you can change the temperature so it is displayed in Fahrenheit or Celsius degrees, and you can change the font color from white to black so that the text is more visible. There is also an option to make the application stay on top of everything on the screen, which allows you to view the current temperature at all times.

I would love to be able to refresh temperature manually or to specify the refresh rate. Still, all in all, the application doesn't bother me when it is open and it provides a good, easy way to check the weather. A double-click on the temperature takes you to the AccuWeather website for the city that you are monitoring.

Pros

  • Nice-looking.
  • Weather alerts.
  • Transparency is customizable.
  • Accurate data.

Cons

  • None.

    Pros: Love the accuweather for Dell because it shows the time in BIG numbers, the date and current temperature
    Cons: Dell has disabled the drop down five day forcast. Instead a 'link' takes you to accuweather home page

    Although Accuweather Stratus comes close to Dell Stage version, it does not give time and date. This app should be free for everyone. If you allowed Dell exclusive rights to a particular version, you've done a great dis service to the public. Also Dell has somehow removed the drop-down 5 day forcast from the Dell version of Accuweather and takes you directly to Accuweather website. I LOVED the drop-down! And the numbers that show the time are not as large. Another mistake!
