**Featured as "New and Noteworthy" after our first 2 weeks.**
**Featured as "What's Hot" our second and third month.**
A true weather app for kids designed by a 6 year old boy (and his meteorologist dad). Power packed with real time weather conditions, forecasts, science and fun facts about the weather, plus it is interactive making it fun for the kids. This includes math and science with S.T.E.M in mind to make parents and teachers happy as well.
-An eye-catching display of the weather with a kid or animal avatar that is dressed for conditions and short term forecasts. Use your hometown or pick a new location to track.
-Change your avatar and make the animals either a boy or a girl.
*Wear? This interactive feature lets you change the weather on your own when it might be boring outside. Raise or lower the temperature, make it sunny, rainy, snowy, or anything in between. See how your avatar will dress in those conditions.
-Educational: Trivia, fun facts, safety tips, and extreme weather records. Learn something new every day of the year. Topics include: Animal Weather, Clouds, Expressions, Extreme Weather, Instruments, Lightning, Nursery Rhymes and Song Lyrics, Rainbows, Sky Color, Seasons, Top US Cities for snow, US State Records, Weather Folklore, Weather Map symbols.
-Math: Includes a Fahrenheit to Celsius calculator
-Graphing: Plot basic weather conditions and keep track by week and month. A great way to introduce kids to a key element of S.T.E.M graphing
Imagine parents and kids spending 5-10 minutes each evening discussing the weather of the day, plot it on the graph, learn something new, and then figure out how to dress for school the next day. Then double-check the weather again in the morning. Our hope is that Kid Weather will be used by kids and with their parents as a useful tool.
**Our goal is to add more kid and animal avatars and features. Your support will help that happen very soon. We look forward to your feedback.

Awesome and useful learning app
I downloaded this app after meeting Justin and learning about the app. I have to say I no longer check my default weather app. This one gives better info. Every morning my kids ask what the weather is and how they should dress. This app takes the guess work out. It's simple and the trivia is fun educational and for an information junkie like myself I LOVE IT!!!! Thanks for putting out a great app and look forward to your next project.
Nothing to do
Ok. At first I was disappointed because there is not a lot for my 4-year-old daughter to do with this app, and the list of trivia seems like sort of a boring delivery format for information on an app. But my daughter loves being able to check the weather and find out what to wear, and it saves arguments about shorts vs. pants. That alone is worth it.
This app is really cute and easy for kids to use. My only suggestion at this point would be to add the option of choosing skin, eye, and hair colors for the kid avatars. This way, it will have more appeal to kids of various cultures and ethnicities. Well done, though!
