I personally like Swackett. It can be a little hokey, but it's got a good radar and forecast system

I second this ^^^

It has a great deal of information, just don't let the excessive cuteness bother you.

Highly recommend!

Drag this to your bookmarks bar; enter your city or zip code; and you're good to go:

Lots of tools to play with.

What are you looking for in a weather client? My assessment:
  1. Meterologist places the weather on your menu bar. This free utility gets its data from the Weather Channel website. You never have to look out a window again.
  2. Wx is probably the most comprehensive fee-based Mac weather application. There are older versions available for download on the Web. The latest version is available at the Mac App Store.

I like the weather channel for my regular weather and skymotion for rain. I'll have to check out your suggestions, havent tried them out yet though.

Allows you to cool down by looking at the motion of the clouds.

I second this question.
  1. App must be free
  2. App must be simple (like on iPhone)
  3. App must have support for Germany
