NOAA SuperRes Radar US - HD Weather Radar and Forecasts
By Shuksan Software, LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
An app designed by and for weather enthusiasts, NOAA SuperRes Radar is the only app in that offers access to stunningly beautiful super hi-resolution radar mosaics for the continental US. SuperRes radar has 4 times the resolution of typical weather radar products (250 meters vs 1000 meters), so you will be able to view storm features that can't be viewed in ordinary radar apps. No other app delivers radar mosaics with this kind of accuracy in such an easy to use package.
In addition to SuperRes Level 2 radar, NOAA RadarUS+ offers access to 3 km hourly forecast radar and the following features:
- 3 and 6 day precipitation and pressure forecasts from NOAA weather models
- Temperature overlay
- Snow/mixed precipitation display (only on 1km base reflectivity radar layer)
- 7 day forecasts and current conditions -- just press and hold for a second on the radar map.
- Severe weather (flash flood, tornado, and severe thunderstorm) warnings. Tap on a warning box to display the full warning message from the National Weather Service. Note: these are *not* push alerts. The app must be open to view the warnings.
- Cloud cover and satellite imagery for the continental United States
- Advanced radar layers (echo tops, composite reflectivity, and storm total precipitation).
- Play, pause, and step animations
- Fast zoom in and zoom out
- Choice of radar palettes
- Multiple map styles (terrain, map, satellite, and hybrid)
- Displays time of radar image either as absolute time or relative to the current time
- Full screen, portrait, and landscape views
- GPS locator that finds and displays your current location
- Adjust the transparency (opacity) of the radar or cloud cover overlays
- Radar clutter filtering and smoothing
- Automatic refresh when new radar or cloud cover data is available
- Search for a location by zip code, city name, or address
- Legend for radar and cloud cover overlays
- Saves and restores your last location and zoom level
Note: Radar coverage only includes the continental United States. Alaska, Hawaii, and other US controlled territories are not included.

What's New in Version 1.6.4
Rotation bug fix
Preforms as needed
I've been using this app for radar mostly and it has it's quirks that I've become used to. Mainly the zooming feature has some difficulty scaling the image to the specific map selected, which is remedied by slightly adjusting the zoom and the overlay snaps to a more clear and accurate location. That said, once I acclimated to the rest of the app it was very easy and surprisingly accurate for the primary function of radar, as for the forecast and satellite, I prefer to use other data sources. This is a basic source for me and chasing storms is not my thing, but I do enjoy keeping up with the weather in ways that most people do not.
Best Radar App
I have had this App for about 2 years now, I kept delaying doing a review, so I'm finally doing it now. I use this App daily to get realtime, accurate, local weather everywhere I go in the US; I can't say anything bad it, this is the only App I've tried that I can say this about. When storms are in the forecast, I use it multiple times a day to track the storms so I can plan around them, or advise my family of severe weather headed their way; 2 of my younger grandchildren are now becoming aspiring meteorologist thanks to this App! If you don't have it, and you want to keep up with weather wherever you are, get it; you won't be disappointed!!!
Radar US Very good weather app.
I'm finding this app to be very useful. Tapping the title at the bottom center of the screen gives a long list of information. The total precipitation menu item doesn't seem to be very accurate. Shows I have had no rain when it has rained for at least an hour. I would like it to show lightening strikes. Over all I find it very useful and look forward to updates. Hope it doesn't change to a subscription app. My last weather app did that after an update.
