Weathertron is a live infographic of the entire day’s weather. See exactly what to expect from every hour of the day — clouds, rain, snow, and temps — on one screen. Unlike most apps, it's powered by 16 different weather data sources, statistically aggregated and weighted, so you always have the most accurate results for your location.
Quickly tell if you should wear a sweater this morning, or if your softball game will be rained out tonight. Weathertron makes it dead simple to plan your whole day around the weather.

What's New in Version 1.0.8
Fixed an issue with the weekly narrative forecast not appearing under iOS 9.
It's good, but...
The 7 day weekly narrative summary is no good if the weather forecast has changed.
When it's raining really heavy, or weather warnings have been issued for severe rain, the app will show just moderate or light rain. I don't think I've ever seen it show heavy rain, no matter how hard the rain is coming down.
Maybe the scale of how rain precipitation is measured in the USA is different to the UK.
Other than that, I really like the idea of this app. I would use it more often if I could rely on the rain forecast though ☔️
