LOCAL WEATHER FOR AUSTRALIANS
WillyWeather is a feature rich weather app that includes BoM radar and satellite, detailed wind, rain, tide, swell and UV forecasts, as well as moon phases, and sunrise and sunset times.
WillyWeather delivers the most accurate local weather data from best in class weather providers including the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM). Going beyond the average weather service, we process and fine-tune forecast data to the specific coordinates of over 17,000 Australian locations including all suburbs, towns, beaches, rivers, parks, lakes and islands.
• WEATHER - Seven day BoM weather forecasts tailored to each location including min/max temperatures, and detailed weather descriptions.
• RADAR - Raw BoM radar data, refined, processed and integrated with iOS maps.
• SATELLITE - National satellite view, displaying cloud cover for the entire Australian continent integrated with iOS maps.
• TIDES - The most comprehensive tide times system in Australia, bringing together BoM standard port data with offsets from the Australian National Tide Tables and various state based marine agencies. Includes every beach in Australia, and many river systems and inlets.
• WIND - An amalgamation of the most accurate global wind forecast models gathered from the BoM, NOAA and ECMWF, interpolated to the exact coordinates for each location and vetted against real-time wind observations to deliver the best performing information.
• UV - Hourly UV index forecasts, including alerts outlining extreme conditions when there is risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure.
• MOON PHASES - Full moon and new moon phases, illumination and rise and set times. Deeply integrated with tidal data.
• RAINFALL - Intuitive visual indication of rainfall probability and intensity for the week ahead, using the latest ACCESS models provided by the BoM.
• SWELL - Swell height, period and direction for each beach in Australia.
• SUNRISE SUNSET - Sunrise and sunset times with first light and last light.
• REAL TIME observational data - with trends for all locations including current temperature, rain since 9am, rain last hour, humidity, pressure, wind speed, wind direction, wind gusts and dew point.
• BOM WARNINGS - Easily accessible and specifically targeted to the locations affected.
• Interactive rainfall radar and satellite, using iOS maps: pan and zoom like you've always wanted through the national BoM radar network, and continental satellite view to see exactly where rain is falling around you, or your favourite locations. Our mapping features provides more control, and more detail than any other Australian weather source.
• Stunning, interactive tide, swell, and wind forecast graphs which allow you to easily understand the conditions at your favourite surf beach, secret fishing spot or upcoming hike - in real-time, and up to seven days in the future. We're particularly proud of our graphs, we pushed the boundaries to provide you with more context, and more detail for each weather type.
• A beautiful, simple and organised interface in which the weather data that is important to you is easy to find, consume and interact with. Our goal was to present accurate and relevant weather information to you, as quickly, and easily as possible.

BEST WEATHER APP EVER!
Seriously the most accurate weather app you'll find in the App Store! I know this cos over the last 2-3 years I've tried over 10 weather Apps (& then deleted them).
"Willy Weather" is accurate AND there's so much extra info like; sunrise/sunset, tides, rainfall, wind & much much more plus up-to-date weather warnings like 'extreme wind warning', fire danger or flood etc.
The info is super-easy to find and there's even more info when you press the " ••• "on the menu bar.
It may not be as 'aesthetically' attractive as some apps, but what's the point of a weather app that looks 'pretty' and gives you wrong or inaccurate information? ... Ever gone out dressed for a cold day only to swelter as the temperature rises (or visa versa) cos your app gave you misleading info?
"Willy Weather' will surprise you with its accuracy & ease of use. Try it
Perfect for beach and river tide and wind info
I use the app to decide which beach to go to depending on the tide, swell and wind direction. It also helps me when deciding which spot on the river to put our kayaks in. It's not just important to know when the rain is coming but which direction the river is running and where there will be water over the sand bars. This app is the only one I've found that tells me all the weather elements I need at all the locations on the river that I visit. Perfect!
Silly Weather is fantastic!!!
This is the worlds greatest weather app - and I've tried a heap of them. It had so much information but it's not in-your-face, or overwhelming. You can choose to access it or not. But you should - the information is in lists and great easy to understand graphs. It's got information that other apps that others don't.
I'm a long time user and it will be my go-to weather app for a long, long time.
