Lightsoft Weather Center

A new application for logging and displaying real-time weather data has been released by Lightsoft. Lightsoft Weather Center maintains a weather database for analysis, and is capable of generating and uploading weather webpages via FTP. The generated pages can contain items such as current conditions, graphs, gauges, statistics, webcam images or timelapse movies. The software is also able to display weather gauges on computers attached to a local network.

As information is collected, the program's database is updated and then sorted to allow the user to view statistics, such as the lowest temperature or highest wind speed, over any period of time. Users can further customize alerts to trigger e-mails, SMS messages and scripts when certain weather conditions are met.

The software requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and currently works with Davis and La Crosse WS23xx weather stations. A free two-week trial is available for download, or a license can be purchased for $86.
