Recommendations Budget Weather Radar?


People fit Radar for various purposes.

One of my main concern is weather (=Squall) detection in dark nights.
Can anyone recommend a specific system excelling in this area?

What slightly dated systems one might find used on the market can be recommended?
Is a color screen a must?
Are there antennas which can be linked directly to a Pc and OpenCpn without the need for an external screen?

I am more looking at the good budget end than on the high end side of things.
Limited financial resources is the keyword.

Thanks for your thoughts.
