As of today Adobe has shut down Flash Player. I used to have a gadget on my web desktop called Accuweather forecast. It is no longer available. Does anyone have a recommended gadget for weather on the desk top. I am running Fire Fox. Thanks in advance

Hey Barry,

Happy New Year!!!

I use 2 on my desktop computer at home:

This one from NOAA which lets you put in a zip code for regional weather: https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=34.0125&lon=-78.1438#.X_46bTSSmUn

And I also use: https://www.windy.com/?33.965,-78.036,8 Windy also lets you zoom in and get "spot" forecasts. You can also enter in coordinates for favorite fishing spots and again get "spot" forecasts. Windy has a ton of info but no real "how to use it" pages. Takes a bit of trial and error but worth the effort in my opinion. If you need some help with Windy, give me a call and I'll walk you thru it.

Later,
John

Thanks John, I have those sites in my bookmarks. What I was looking for was something that would stay on my browser home page.

I can't say that any of them would be useful to you, but you can go to the App Store (play.google.com) and find some desktop weather widgets. There are a ton of them in there.
