Software MacKiev's 3D Weather Globe™ & Atlas provides a complete weather package from dew point to wind chill factor, overlaid on the highest resolution NASA maps ever created for the entire Earth. Cloud cover is provided throughout the day from satellite feeds, detailed enough to see the eye of a hurricane. Route-mapping functionality is included so you can plot your own trip around the world or view one of the program's historical routes such as Amelia Earhart's attempt to circle the globe, or the voyage of Columbus to discover America. Winner of an Apple Design Award for User Experience, 3D Weather Globe & Atlas provides amazingly accurate views of Earth that also earned the product a 5-mouse review from Macworld magazine. Other features include real-time day/night line, country borders, city locations, time zones and more.
Provides complete compatibility with OS X Lion.

Average functionality - Perfect graphs! Clouds are amazing sa well. Mediocre level of functionality. I would like to see forecasts for stops in my travel route in one screen but it is not possible. I also would like to see forecasts on my favorite cities on one screen. And I would like to see a time and data, very basic but still missing. Conclusion: Promissing application!
Aditional hiden fees for weather and clouds - They will charge you after one year if you want to continue receiving the animations.

nice clouds - A little expensive, but I bought it. It does show the clouds nicely, assuming they're correct, and that's useful to me (if they're correct) as our local caribbean weather is affected by far away cloud development. But in annimation mode I've not been able to find if or how one can show a clock for the time of the current frame in the cloud animation which makes it a guessing game as to when they are where at a given point in the animation. Take off the stars for that and price, unless I simply can't find how to show the "cloud clock". General complaint about weather apps: where's the barametric pressure maps!
