"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!
More background weather states.
Bug fixes, yay!
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.
Good but not accurate
I live in Pakenham, Melbourne, Victoria 3810 and neither the temperature nor the rain predictions seem to be accurate. Sometimes the radar location is Cranbourne, and most of the times it’s Ferny Creek. Someone in my family uses the official BOM app which is always more accurate. The temperature Rain Parrot shows is up to 5 degrees less than the BOM app shows, and BOM turns out to be more accurate. At the point of writing this review, it says it’s raining, but there are only clouds outside and no rain. Maybe in the future when the app is able to show weather for your exact location it may become accurate.
