Nintendo just graced us with the Wii's weather channel. It's slicker than the bloated weather.com website. And has a lot more personality than your average news person (Ron Burgundy excepted).

The channel gives you the current conditions, high for the day, 24-hour and 5-day outlooks. And it can do the same for cities across the globe. Click on through for our tour of how it works, and the rest of what it can do.

I like it, and I'll likely use it as an excuse to boot the Wii in the morning, so I can justify 10 minutes of playtime with my Cocoa Puffs. But I wish the forecasts for the day were kicked to the main Wii menu, in the weather channel's icon. You shouldn't have to start an entire app to check the weather. That said, it's a fun toy. One wish: Give us a Mii weatherman.
