A total of 31 different weather conditions are available each of which can be associated with a different wallpaper. The default wallpaper for each weather type is a simple block of text pronouncing the weather condition, over a black background. The program author expects the user will customize these wallpapers to reflect different weather patterns. For example, you can have a wallpaper of a snowy scene for cold weather, a picture of rain for rainy days and so on.
