In 2019, the weather widgets included with Mac OS X 10.4 – 10.14 stopped working, because the original APIs went offline. So, I rewrote some of the code to use different APIs.

Possible weather conditions in this version are clear, partly cloudy, rain, snow, rain & snow, flurries, wind, fog, lightning, and freezing rain. This leaves out without a few that were in the original (haze, sun-shower, etc.), but the DarkSky API doesn't offer such granularity. I may release updates from time-to-time if I notice something that could be improved, so consider occasionally checking back in to wherever you downloaded this.

This widget requires API keys from DarkSky and MapQuest in order to function. Please follow the instructions included in the download. On 10.8 and below, you will also need to setup a rudimentary proxy server to work around https issues.

This mod would not have been possible without the DarkSky API. Please consider buying one of DarkSky's mobile apps to reward their work.

Really nice upload, I wasn't aware the servers of those APIs went offline. For the record, any download/upload here that fixes native or built-in Mac OS or Mac OS X features will always be beyond welcome.
