I would like to see a more Apple look with a way to compact the weather view for today. BUT it provides what the UK customers want and that's a weather forecast that works at the minor cities and towns.

Gah - it's chewing vast gobs of my CPU when I'm not even displaying the Dashboard! No wonder my Mac's been running so poorly all afternoon smiley

Apart from that, the wind speed indicators could really do with being clearer - they're pretty hard to read at 1600x1200! The location selector is very annoying if you're at the bottom of the list, too (if only Apple gave pulldowns scroll bars!)

OK - it looks like the poor step-sister to all the other widgets on my PB, but having a daughter studying in England, I've been hoping for an English weather widget, and this helps.
Loads of cities, but where's Carnforth?
Not to cause trouble with our friends across the Pond, but I'm guessing more than a few Americans will check up on your weather, and while I can do Cº to Fº in my head (takes a while), a Fahrenheit option might be nice.
Keep working on this, graphics, esp. - a good start - thanks.

Is there anyway to get more results? As it doesn't cover my town.
