Prior to cycling to work in the morning, I'd like to know if I need to cart rain gear for the way home.
The xfce4-weather-plugin sits in the lower-right hand corner of the panel and is almost perfect:
Similarly, My Weather Indicator cannot show the evening forecast by default, nor does it appear to be configurable as a panel indicator. Also, it's gigantic (even on the 'small' setting) and draggable.
The problem is that these tools show the current weather, which offers the same information as looking out the window. Extra time is required to show the daily forecast, including what to expect for the evening.
There is no way to configure it to show the evening forecast by default instead of the current conditions.
What applet (or plug-in) can be customized to display:
- a raincloud icon in the panel if the day is expected to end in showers (partly cloudy, etc.)?
- the probability of precipitation (also for the evening)?
- using a small amount of screen real estate (e.g., ~70x50 pixels)?
Note that a panel indicator or applet, specifically, is sought.
