Recently discovered weechat, and I'm quite impressed with it!
Out of the box nicklist, nick colouring.., it just looks awesome: http://www.weechat.org/screenshots/
I am used to my IRC client to flash it's window when my name is highlighted. You can achieve this with the script bleep.pl As qbi comments over here:
You can download beep.pl: cd ~/.weechat/perl && wget http://www.weechat.org/files/scripts/beep.pl. Now you can use in weechat: /perl load beep.pl
If you use multiple windows in screen, and your weechat client is not the active one, you get a "Bell in window %n" message instead of an actual bell in the terminal. You can change that message with CTRL+A, :bell_msg "^G". Just as %n will be replaced with the window number, ^G is replaced with an actual bell.

In PuTTY: Change settings->Terminal -> Bell -> Taskbar/caption indication on bell: (x) Flashing. Also don't forget to use FauxFaux build of putty as it has lots of cool additional features like clickable links, ctrl+scrollwheel for changing font size, minimize to tray, ... .
