    Weather report

    I need a command-line weather report tool.
    Can't find any suitable.
    There's one called "weather" but it's only for US, unfair!
    KDE widgets work fine, but I need a command-line one.

    Re: Weather report

    I'll second that! I want a command line tool for generating a spoken weather report to play after my morning alarm. I'm going to have to go look at source-forge. Maybe they'll have something more useful.

    Who said the weather(1) command (from the weather-util package) was US only?

    Wow. Thanks a lot! I was looking for weather-util alternative covering my home city when found your answer.
