Want to know the weather forecast right now? Oregon Scientific's WMS802 WeatherNow II uses free data broadcast from MSN Direct to show you the temperature, wind speed, the high and low for the day and a three-day forecast. The WeatherNow version II improves on the design of its predecessor, which had a scrolling text field across the top that we found in our extensive testing to be of limited usefulness.

However, the new version loses the two cool blue neon lights of the first version. Still, this one's more functional and easier to read, giving you a new "feels like" temperature. It's $129.99. $70 cheaper than the still-available WeatherNow I.

Wow, that thing is trashy-looking compared to the Brookstone one. Plus the Brookstone model is very thin and the icons are much more attractive. The back is all magnetic as well, which is great for sticking on the side/front of the fridge. Made great xmas gifts this year @ $85.
