I don't know what happened between between WeatherDock and the Weather.com folks, but I just found this app on my hard drive and it's working again! So if you can find a copy of it out there somewhere it's still a great little app that's working great!

What the? After reading your post, I just launched WD 2.5.1 in Mavericks 10.9.3 and it works. Wow... it's BACK.

Thank you so much for the head's up.

It's very much gone now. :( Thanks weatherchannel.com, you greedy jerks.

This was posted 2 days ago on developer's website:

WeatherDock 3 cancelled

After deep consideration, I have decided not to release a new version of WeatherDock. While WeatherDock 3 was building up to be a great application, it was unfortunately that no reasonable price-tag could posted on it.

Since Colourful Apps is a small company with only a limited footprint, a viable weather application would have a relative high price. Creating an ad-based alternative is not something I wish to pursue.

When WeatherDock first came to be in 2004, it was only one of a few weather applications, delivering a unique weather experience on your Mac desktop. In today's world there are many other good alternatives, most of them for free. Continuing the WeatherDock tradition would only make sense as a free or low priced application.

It is time to say goodbye to WeatherDock. But not without thanking all of you who have been supporting WeatherDock since 2004.

Many thanks also go to the following persons who contributed to the development of WeatherDock: Jari Lammi, Marc Sales, Michael Jiang, Preben Nielsen, Corentin Cras-Méneur & Josy Rochaud, Pierino Donati, By Henryk Richter, Theodore Bartsas.

With regards,

So, what's the best alternative in your opinion?

Meteorologist, IMO. That is, for an "always on" menubar weather app I prefer it, anyway. It's been very stable for the most part in the last few years. It does have a glitch with Spaces where it takes up an invisible square space in it though and that will shrink other windows in Spaces unnecessarily. My only real complaint about it.

I set its preferences like this:

After a few weeks of renewed functionality WD is again not working for me as of 1 July. The best of good and improved health to Alwin, the dev. WD has been a great app. Hope Alwin can resume work on it at some point.

I just hope that this application working again isn't some sort of error and that the developer will be getting an invoice from Weather.com. That would not be good.

Sounds like a good time to send the Dev another donation. :)

You're right Cowicide. Ain't that a kick in the head. Now I'll have to go back to using WeatherMan.

Boy, do I miss WD! Loved, loved the little shimmering pop ups announcing a change in condition! Really miss the notifications and impromptu weather warnings. Oh well. Would pay to have this app back again...

According to the dev's website, it's now been delayed indefinitely due to illness. I wish the Dev well. If you've used the old version and never sent in a donation for, now would probably be a very good time to show your thanks to this dev for all the hard work he put into it and send a "get well" donation.

Oh, and WeatherDock 2 has been working again as of 05-14-2012. Not sure how long it'll last, but others are reporting the same thing. I'm back up and running it now. :)

I Was crestfallen to learn that WeatherDock would be no more….been using it for years and loving it; but now I hear that a WeatherDock 3 is in the works. Whoop di doo, I'm really jazzed.
Looks like WD3 is gonna be even nicer than 2.
You can leave your email address at developer's website and he'll let you know when WD3 is ready to roll….yes!
