Weather Reports

Two pretty cool ways to display a weather report in the terminal, both methods require an active internet connection.


1http://graph.no offers a finger weather service:

finger london@graph.no finger new_york@graph.no


You can also request a short one line version:

mjb:~ mike$ finger o:london@graph.no
[graph.no]
london at 20:00: 3 C, 2.7 mps wind from E.


2http://wttr.in works in a browser, or from the command line with CURL:

curl wttr.in/london curl wttr.in/new_york


3 While showing off Mac terminal tricks, lets not forget the old favorite, Star Wars:

telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl
