The only free Windows program I can think of is NOAA's Weather and Climate Toolkit ( NOAA's Weather and Climate Toolkit (Viewer and Data Exporter) and I don't know of anyone who uses it in real time (only for post event stuff). The king of Windows radar software are the Gibson Ridge products, but they are not free (but are worth the price).
Amazing how many people don’t want to pay $10 or whatever it is, whether it be for radar or even for other apps with safety applications such as iMap Weather Radio. I am old enough to remember buying software on CDs and nothing was ever less than $50 and that was obviously years ago, so much higher in today’s dollars…
Anyway, the OP mentioned open source so perhaps the intent is to use the data for some other custom application?
I use this version of wX on an Android tablet.
Would love to find something similar for windows (win 8 or lower). and free ofcourse.
Kinda remember trying the Weather Climate Toolkit randy mentioned, but couldn't get it to work or something.
Tablet is deff great for portability, but if looking at weather at home, would also be nice to have a 2nd option on the computer with a larger screen..
I don't pay for downloads (of any type) .. that may or may not be somewhat limiting,,,
