"stuff like weather apps" is a wee bit vague really, but first port of call would be your Software Manager.
Have you googled what you're looking for? eg "weather apps for Linux"

You can get the current conditions and a 3-day forecast for your area from the terminal by entering these commands.

Code: Select all

curl wttr.in/jacksonville+florida
(the +florida is in case there is more than one Jacksonville in the database)

or

Code: Select all

curl wttr.in/32099
(substitute your 5-digit ZIP if it is something other than 32099)

Raven,

I just used Software Manager and typed in one word, "Weather" and there were a couple of apps there that I tried out.

Then, I found a Panel Applet that I really like because it resides on the panel all the time and shows the current Temperature.

Click on it and it comes up about 1/3rd screen. the size depends on how many days forecast you want.
It is configurable to add/delete any of the information.
