How to Add the Weather Forecast to your Mac Menu Bar

Right from the moment it struck my mind, I liked the idea of showing weather forecast to Mac menu bar. It makes a bit easier to track the real-time weather conditions.

To never get caught in the bad weather or allow sudden thunderstorms to ruin my sunny travel, I always keep a powerful weather app on my radar. That’s the prime reason why I’ve added the weather forecast to my Mac menu bar so that keeping track of weather conditions will be a tad easier.

Rather than launching the app and taking a look at the weather predictions, it’s more convenient to have a glance at the actual condition in the menu bar. From what I’ve experienced, many of you would prefer to go this way as well. Let me help you get through!

How to View Weather Forecast in Mac Menu Bar

Frankly speaking; showing weather forecast in the menu bar on macOS is as straightforward as downloading an app. Literally.

There are many weather apps for macOS that let you do so with ease. I’m going to use Weather Widget Desktop app. It works perfectly and is considered one of the finest weather apps for Mac.

The app is available for free (with some limitations) and requires OS X 10.10 or later, 64-bit processor.

Step #1. First off, download Weather Widget Desktop on your Mac.

If you want the app to show more, you will have to upgrade to the pro version. From the same menu, you can head over to the Preferences panel of the app and use other goodies like the option to show the latest weather right on your desktop.

Other Alternatives?

As mentioned above, there are quite a few weather apps that can let you get it done. Based on my personal experience, I would suggest the names of Clear Day ($4.99), and Forecast Bar (free). They are all highly rated and can live up to your demand pretty well.
