About: Weather Map

"Weather Map" is an AppleScript application made to download the current weather maps for your selected region of the USA. When you run "Weather Map" it looks at the preferences made by the "Weather Map Run First" application to determine what region you have selected. Then it downloads the weather maps for your region. It creates a folder on your desktop called Weather to store the maps. It then creates a sub folder for that download labeled with the date. It stores the maps for the day in that folder. "Weather Map" will ask you if you would like to keep the maps. If you don't want to save the maps, "Weather Map" will delete them for you.
