The deep, detailed meteorological reasoning behind your local weather forecast, straight from the experts at NOAA/NWS.

Deep Weather automatically compiles an easy-to-read version of the most recent National Weather Service Forecast Discussion, advisories and warnings for your location. Just launch the app, and it takes care of everything for you.

The National Weather Service Forecast Discussions provide detailed information and background about the weather patterns and observations that are part of the most recent forecast model. They represent the "Story behind the weather story," a glimpse behind the scenes of your current forecast, and provide lots of detail not found anywhere else.

Use the map view to select any National Weather Service Forecast Office and receive the latest forecast discussion for that area.

The discussion is broken up into sections for you, and the text itself formatted in a much more easily read format than the raw original.

These discussions are amended and updated several times per day, so you can follow how the weather forecast is changing in real time, as well as gain a deeper understanding of the thought that goes into forming the forecast.

Love the app for AFDs, now with favorites option.


Update! Wow, that was fast! So easy now to toggle between my favorite NWS stations with the heart icon on the bottom toolbar. Thanks for the quick turnaround on that request. // My previous review: One of my go to first in the morning to read local NWS Area forecast discussion's. I have only three requests for hopefully future updates... The option to store favorite offices, push notifications when a new discussion is available for one of your favorites and maybe and option for the previous discussion from that office. Love the app. Clean and quick to load data on my iPhone and iPad.

Thanks for the feedback StormVisuals! I'm actually already working on a "favorite stations" feature, which should be rolled out soon. Thanks again!

Good, but weird text parsing


Deep Weather is improving but is still lacking in polish. For example, in the list of forecast discussion sections, each list item is very tall. The preview text in them is of limited benefit, so I’d rather see just the headings and keep the list to a single page. (I love the list icons, though!)

The thing that bugs me the most, though, is how the text itself is parsed: every sentence shows up as a new paragraph. This makes it so much harder to follow and completely fragments the flow of what the forecaster was saying. Please fix it so it shows the paragraphs as written!

Overall, a good app with plenty of opportunities to become even better!

I appreciate the feedback! Check out this latest update (Version 3.3.1), where I've made some improvements to the formatting that I think you'll like. :)

Excellent information

Root Beer Float -PCT, CDT

As a long distance backpacker I need raw information on weather as I'm out on the trail a month or more at a time. I find Deep Weather to fill this need in keeping me informed on what is ahead weather wise for the short term and long term forecasts. I've learned to trust it and rely on it for its information, which in turn helps me formulate, and or adjust the hike plan as needed. With learning weather patterns and reading the clouds as they appear in the sky, I'm very seldom caught by surprise with weather events.
