    We just display the local Weather Underground page for our area. As our displays are 1080, it displays fairly well and is constantly up to date.

    I do wish there was a better way, with larger text and bigger graphics that are more orientated around digital signage. I've been saying I'll look into using one of the providers API's to make a custom display for our screens, but I've yet to have time to do this.

    In the old days, we used to have a Davis weather station on the roof - we used to display real time weather data for our site from that on our screens. That was really cool, it was a shame when it was destroyed - by the wind, somewhat ironically!
