I'm looking for a weather alert popup program for windows.
Maybe, a small app stays on task bar and it shows a popup and news depending on setting configured.

Not sure how extensive or minimal you are looking for, and what version of windows.. But weather channel has a desktop app...

If you're using Windows 7, what about a widget?

I personally just have the weather app on my phone and it gives me alerts.. So i haven't used most of these desktop applications, just figured i'd make suggestions! Hope this helps...
