    I am looking for a weather widget that will display short-term forecasts.
    Every wx widget I have seen will display current conditions and maybe a quick forecast for the next couple/few days.
    I know what the weather is now and will get tomorrows forecast when I watch the evening news.
    I would like information such as the forecast for this afternoon and tonight.
    The free wm6 today plugin form weatherbug would provide this info.
    I paid for weatherbug elite on the android for much less functionality.
    So ...
    anyone know of a widget that will display short-term weather forecasts?

    I have one widget, called weather & calendar widget, and it tells me 3 days weather forcast. And it could used as a calendar too. I like it, maybe you could make a search in the market, I'm pretty sure you could find it there, and it's free.

    Have you looked at beautiful widgets? They are very popular with lots of skins, and do provide short term weather forecast. Lots of users on the forum have it including me, I love it.

    The widget from weatherbug puts the current temp along with watches & warnings are displayed in the notifications


    many widgets provide a multiday forecast.
    I am looking for one that gives me very short-term foreceasts.
    Something like the next half day.
    The wm6 today plugin I mentioned was perfect.
    It displayed the next half day (afternoon & evening if it was morning, evening and overnight if it was afternoon, etc)


    I have installed Beautiful Widgets and do not see this option

    In beautiful widgets, if you just click the weather icon on the clock/weather skin, it takes you to the screen instantly with the short term forecast and current weather/etc.

    Oh and for 2acclaim, with Beautiful Widgets you can have the temp in the notification bar.

    Oops, just noticed you wanted afternoon/night etc. Sorry :(

    There's also Palmary Weather, which breaks it into morning, afternoon, and evening. I'm also looking for something that's hourly though.
