For Weather enthusiasts with a Mac, this is by far the best program to view, present and log your weather data. Extremely flexible and reliable, full of features, easy to use.

Only one gripe (that will hopefully be resolved in a future release): it is not possible to import my 10 years of data, in my case Davis .WLK format.

WeatherCat is the sports sedan of Mac weather programs. It is slick, very fast and nimble. Still, it is comfortable enough to be used in a wide range of conditions. WeatherCat is the latest creation of developer Stuart Ball who has been working on Mac weather software since 2004. It rests upon the modern Xcode development environment and doesn’t suffer from any legacy Mac code or Windows/UNIX porting inefficiencies.

It is easy to set up and run with any weather station it supports. It can import data from a number of other weather station programs if you have been using something else. At the same time, it has advanced features that you will appreciate as your interest grows. It has a robust custom alert system to keep you informed of changing weather that interests you. It has an extensive graphing system to allow you to display the changing weather conditions.

If you want to share your data with others via Internet weather websites, it supports uploads to Weather Underground and CWOP. There is a free add-on available to upload to 3 additional web services and web templates that support several more upload services. For the adventurous, WeatherCat allows you to create your own weather website. There is a simple website built-in or you can create your own custom website. It is even possible to have real-time weather displayed using the custom CGI feature. There are a number of website templates using this capability that can be freely downloaded on the WeatherCat forum. For the truly bold, it is even possible to extend WeatherCat using the AppleScript interface.

WeatherCat’s “secret weapon” it is enthusiastic user-community that can be found on the WeatherCat forum. There you can find anything from troubleshooting hints to advice on setting up your weather station instruments. Trying to set up a home weather station can be really bewildering. Finding passionate and friendly Mac users comfortable with weather station hardware is reason enough to check WeatherCat out.

I've been using the beta version of this software for over a month now, and I must say I'm impressed! I have the Davis Vantage Pro II Weather Instruments package, and WeatherCat has done an excellent job of catching and storing the data, while displaying live views of the most eye popping custom charts on any computer today. And price? For what it does, this software is a real bargain!

In addition to charting your data, it seamlessly sets you up with weather underground and Citizens Weather Observer Program, then goes a long way toward enabling the management of your own custom weather web pages.

There are some missing wish list items, but then this is version 1.0. Expect it to get even better with each new iteration. If you do weather on the Mac, or you want to do weather on the Mac, there is no better choice!

Excellent piece of software and so easy to use and setup. uses a wide range of weather stations and functions very well with my Oregon 928. Great support in place through the forum or through macweather.net.
A great looking interface which is highly configurable to your own needs. takes very little computer resources too. All in all a bargain at the price, and a must for any serious mac weather enthusiast.

  • Fine Offset WH1080/2080/3080 stations
  • WeatherHawk stations equipped with an IP server module.
As data is gathered and stored in its database, WeatherCat allows you to view weather statistics such as the lowest temperature, or the highest wind speed over any time period stored in the database. In addition, WeatherCat can generate and upload simple Web pages which offer quick 'canned' solution to get your weather data on-line as quickly as possible, as well as template-driven 'custom' Web pages that can contain current conditions, graphs, gauges, statistics, webcam images, and time-lapse movies; these Web pages can be uploaded to your server by WeatherCat for display via a Web browser anywhere in the world. A live list of all possible 'tags' that can be used in your templates is available here.

WeatherCat can also send your weather data to the Weather Underground (Wunderground), the Citizens Weather Observer Program (C.W.O.P.), the Met-Office WOW program, PWSWeather, WeatherBug and OpenWeatherMap. In addition is provides close to real time Custom C.G.I. upload to a web-server for your own web-based applications along with the ability to send your data to a MySQL database opening up a world of applications in charting and analysis.

WeatherCat monitors the weather and can run a set of pre-defined and user-programmed alerts that can trigger emails and/or run scripts should an alert trigger; for example, to switch on your sprinklers, heating, or cooling. In addition WeatherCat can integrate with other systems via its AppleScript interface.

WeatherCat is designed to run 24/7/365 and doesn't normally require user interaction or maintenance. Important events are notified via email. For example, WeatherCat may detect a problem uploading weather data to Wunderground. It will typically be able to resolve the issue, but if it can't, will send you an email.
