Degrees adds the current weather to your Mac's menu bar

Degrees, a free of charge app within the Mac App Store, will help you quickly glance at the current weather with your menu bar.

I know not all Mac users use the OS X Dashboard widgets; some even claim that it's time Apple eliminates it altogether. But I put it to use quite often to monitor packages, and look at current weather conditions through the stock Weather widget.

Getting to the Dashboard might not be convenient, so adding a menu bar icon to detail the actual temp and climate conditions seemed like a good suggestion when I stumbled on Degrees inside Mac App Store.

The free app doesn't offer much in means of features, but it doesn't need to. When you launch the app after installing, you can see a weather icon in your menu bar with the actual temperature outside. You can enter your local area, or let the app determine your region for you. You can also limit it to displaying only the existing temperature or current conditions if your menu bar starts feeling somewhat cramped.

I did incorporate some issues entering my location, and also the first go wouldn't permit me to select the box for Degrees to discover my position for me, but quitting and relaunching the app resolved both issues.

You can download Degrees in the Mac App Store free of charge. It's compatible with OS X 10.6 or more.
