"Tried the other night, and I could not have picked a better time to tryout. It told me it would rain in 13 minutes, so I set a timer as a joke. Alarm went off as the sound of rain reached me. Spooky.
Definitely one of those "the future is here" technology moments." - 5 stars from Davexl23
Need to know when it is going to rain? Want a lovely animation of the nearest rain radar? Then do we have the app for you!
Here's a charming app that will send a lovely notification to you before it rains at your location, telling you when it is going to rain down to the minute. You'll never be caught out in the rain again!
Our PollyCloud Weather Engine uses advanced computing modelling to give you highly specific alerts about incoming rain on a minute by minute basis, even while you travel.
Playing or watching sport, doing the washing, hosting a party, building or doing repairs - or even just commuting to work or school - then don't let the weather spoil the party by getting caught out in the rain. Whether you're an outdoorsy person or not, you'll love it.
The is one of the most useful apps made for Australians, with help from those government weather folks and their high tech doppler radar.
But that's not all, we've been working hard to add loads of other features:
- Daily rain notifications
- Local weather, including current wind, rain probability and hourly weather conditions
- Radar view, with custom animations
- Minute by minute rain view
- And more!
Thanks for all the great feedback!
We've improved backgrounds and performance,
Updated colours so it is easier to read,
Updated iPad layout,
and other general improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Can be MORE accurate than looking at the BOM radar sometimes . Have had this a long time. Have old phone iph5 with iOS 10.3.3. I have had no issues from it. It does crash on opening from alert notification but if i put my finger on the screen when app opens then it stays open. Strange but it works. Ive downloaded 10 weather apps in 5 yrs and this is my favourite. Extremely accurate 9 out of 10 times but i guess that would be cos the 1 out of 10 has evaporated before it hits the ground. I m an app hoarder so i can tell u from experience u will be satisfied to have this app
Works brilliantly (Western Australia)
Live in Western Australia and it is always accurate, the rain notifications are always timely, helps let me know if I should leave the house for the bus a little earlier to avoid being rained on, and have saved my washing a few time from unexpected spurts of rain. Always get notified before rain begins, and very very seldomly are there miss-notifications. Accurate 95% of the time, only sometimes saying there's rain but in my exact area there isn't (although very dark and cloudy must admit). Cannot recommend this enough.
Maybe it’s a north qld thing but..
.. I had to delete this app due to its horrendous inaccuracies. Another Aussie weather app that I use which also sources it’s weather from the BOM is far more accurate. Rain parrot would constantly miss when the rain would come, and kept continuously giving false alarms - so much so that I had to turn its “sensitivity” right down. Forecasts were grossly inaccurate often saying high percentage likelihood of rain where as weatherAU and/or BOM would have low to none (which were more correct). It was very confusing as to how it could be so wrong. I sent multiple emails to support to see if they could help me, but no response. Bad app, sorry.
