Radar Pro is an interactive Weather Radar application for anyone with a need for graphical weather updates. It allows you to view the most up-to-date weather radar data direct from the United States National Weather Service NEXRAD Level 3 Radar Network. Coverage includes the entire 50 states and Puerto Rico.
What sets Radar Pro apart from other weather radar applications is that Radar Pro receives radar data directly from the National Weather Service operational servers. The images are in their true, original format and not a smoothed graphic - smoothing any data reduces its accuracy. This means the radar data is the most accurate view of precipitation freely available to the public.
All Severe Weather Warnings for Tornado (Red), Severe Thunderstorm (Yellow), and Flash Flood (Green) issued by the National Weather Service are displayed on the map and the warning's details can be easily viewed from the Warnings pane.
Know exactly where a storm is and where it's going and how it could impact you -- set the radar image in motion and easily begin an animation loop to view storm motion over the past several minutes.
