What's New in Version 1.21
Accurate, worth the money
The NOAA's official website is accurate, but often hard-to-interpret.
This app gains you access to the same data, but has just enough additional ease-of-use built into the interface that it's well worth the money.
I just started skiing, and accurate, granular 48-hour snow forecasts have been a major help in deciding when to go hit the slopes.
This is my new favorite weather app for winter sports - no ads, no re-directs, no outages: just accurate and up-to-the-moment data.
Most accurate snowfall predictions
I use both the Weather Channel and Accuweather apps and like them both for overall weather information and forecasts. But this app, which is based on NOAA forecasts, has proven to be the most accurate this winter in New England when the one thing I want to know is how much snow we'll be receiving in my neighborhood over the next 6-24 hours. It's been great at telling me how much snow I'll be dealing with.
So far this ski season, this app has been the most accurate for weather and snow fall projections of all the other apps I've used to plan my frequent ski trips to Colorado's central mountains. Their projections and maps showing where and when snow will fall have been dependable and seem to be adjusted when I look again in the mornings. My other apps seem to adjust just once every 24 hours.
