Gnome has a weather applet that does pretty much what the weather bug
does.  Checked to see if there was a way to get this on to the kde
panel. It doesn't look like there is but maybe a KDE aficionado can
figure one out... When you click it, it opens up a current conditions
and forecast news. It has the temp  and an icon that represents the
current weather.  I really like it.
