Weather Vane is a Mac OS X utility that retrieves your local weather forecast and displays it in the menubar (both U.S. and international locations). Place it in your Login Items, and it will launch when you log in. The current temperature and conditions are displayed in the menu bar. Its menu displays the forecast and the tooltip displays the more detail on current conditions is your area. Weather Vane will fetch your forecast in intervals that you decide (15min.- 6hrs). Runs on both 32 bit and 64 bit systems. Localized for several languages.

Oh drat, just when it was looking good. Great tool when it works. Unfortunately, Weather Vane hangs the whole startup if it cannot connect to a server, and that is proving to be highly unreliable. So, again, goodbye Weather Vane.

Miracles...after a few months of being weatherless and checking back here on a whim and seeing Weather Vane still listed, I've tried it again and it's working! For now? Thank you.

If Spike is looking for a new server, he might look into BBC's met service. It's used by many Linux apps.

He could also develop this app in such a way that it doesn't depend on one server.

I wonder why he hasn't implemented a feature in which users may designate a server. Along with this, it would be better if the app didn't freeze up if it can't connect to a server. Meteorologist, for example, just shows the app icon if it can't connect.

Meteorologist, btw, has also had this server problem many times. I switched to Weathervane because, up to now, the weather server there has been reliable.

Anybody know how to deinstall this software that doesn't apparently work anymore. It just keeps saying that it's fetching forecast.

I'm having the same issue. Weather Vane has stopped working for me as well. I use it on my G4 laptop. I also hope it will be fixed soon.

There is a problem with download page (doesn't work), as well as with Weather Vane v. 2.3.2 itself. Suddenly, app doesn't work any more?!
Did the Developer quit? I doubt because home web page is still there! But every other link from that page is not working. Is there a way to find out what is going on?
Weather Vane was a very good and reliable app.

This is from the devs page: "My apologies. I guess success isnt always a good thing. Accuweather says that Weather Vane is hitting their server too often. They receive over 100,000 hits a day for all of the users out there. Assholes! I'll find a new feed and release a new version this weekend. Sorry for the inconvenience." I'm not sure how long that's been there, if it's recent though, that should imply he'll be fixing the issue soon :)

Yep, I think it's DOA...I sent Spike a note too but haven't heard back either.

Weather Vane suddenly no longer works for me (on three different Macs). Problem started in 2.3.1 and persists with 2.3.2. Where the usual weather report/temperature appears in the menu there is only a continuous scrolling of "Weather Vane... fetching weather" that never ends. I e-mailed Spike Software about it a week ago and haven't heard a peep :(

WV has pooched, again. Displaying "Fetching forecast" and "null,null", the same as last time the feed was disabled by a data provider. Deleting preferences had no effect, and issue exists on three different networks, so assuming it is not a localised issue.
