WEATHER(7) (alice) WEATHER(7) NAME weather - conditions and forecast by town SYNOPSIS weather [ -h ] [ -m ] DESCRIPTION Weather reports current weather conditions and a forecast for towns in the contiguous United States. It reads town names from the standard input, one per line. Each input line should be of the form walla walla, wa where the state is given as the 2-letter Post Office abbre- viation. The information provided is the temperature, humidity, whether or not it is raining or snowing, and an indication of cloudiness and visibility if it is not. If the wind is above 10 knots the wind speed and direction are given. Up to three forecasts are given (assuming they can be found within a 4x4 degree latitude-longitude square): a forecast of high and low temperatures plus probability of precipita- tion taken from some numerical model of the atmosphere, a general area forecast and a marine forecast (if near the coast and if the -m argument is given). To just get a local forecast, the command weather -h is equivalent to weather followed by a single input line of Murray Hill, NJ. BUGS Not all the available information is used yet: we hope cumu- lative precipitation will be added, and additional forecasts will be included.
