Question by Brian: What windows Sys-tray weather software is available thats free?
I’m currently using Weather Bug and its about as annoying as ever with its winter windows decorations, slow loads and it has pops up alert ballons that no matter how many times you close it it keeps popping up until you open the application.

Is their any other software that simply just shows you the weather and temperature with little or no annoyance? This is for a windows XP computer.
