     This is a simplified version of a commercial weather monitoring program I developed. It features current conditions and a two-day forecast from The Weather Channel. It is designed to read the weather to you using speech synthesis, but also displays the weather in a form and in a tray icon with balloon. This application uses Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 to provide managed speech synthesis. This is built-in to Microsoft Vista and Longhorn Server, but must be downloaded and installed for Windows XP or Windows Server 2003. It is not available for Windows 9x or Windows 2000/NT. This application also uses a XML feed from The Weather Channel. Please have fun with this. Remember you can separate the voice synthesizer class and use it for other applications. I'm sure you will find any number of useful methods and classes here. I think it is pretty well commented. All the documentation for The Weather Channel XML feed, as well as their icons, are included.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
