If you've always wanted your own WeatherStar 4000, now is your chance! Since a real one costs thousands of dollars and requires equipment that won't work outside of a cable company, a fan by the name of Bill spent months putting together a computer program that emulates the 4000. Using programming skills from a Computer Science degree, as well as fonts and graphics created by another fan named Nick, he not only created one that looks like the 4000, but is fully functional!
You can customize it by adding cities to a regional map that you select, pick your current conditions location, and so on. It will also download accurate and timely weather conditions, forecasts, and local radar data right to your desktop from the National Weather Service. Other features include animated icons, a scrolling Travel Cities Forecast (with editable cities), editable flavors, editable music playlists (with music you choose), and more! Every screen is included, except for the marine forecast and tides.

These clips were created by me using various city configurations from version 2 (which is no longer supported). Newer clips are near the top.
