Thanks to everyone for making MyRadar so successful, with over 45 million downloads!
MyRadar is a fast, easy-to-use, weather application that displays animated weather radars around your current location, allowing you to quickly see what weather is coming your way. Our High Definition Doppler radar data is processed from raw NOAA weather radar data from the National Weather Service / NWS using our custom-designed, proprietary systems and software, offering the clearest, sharpest, most accurate and most up-to-date reflection of precipitation available... easily accessible at the tap of a finger on your mobile device.
Just start the app, and your location pops up with animated weather, allowing you to easily see if rain or snow is headed your way. Our high-res animated radar helps you see weather details even at the closest level!
What's great about MyRadar is that the map is easily zoomed and scrolled around with the flick of a finger, allowing you to quickly check the weather in other parts of the country, including Hawaii & Puerto Rico!
On top of the basic weather forecast, users can get a quick glance of temperatures around the country, as well as overlay a current satellite image of cloud cover. For you aviation buffs, there's a layer that provides AIRMETs & SIGMETs, and even the ability to overlay the flight plan of a particular aircraft onto the map. With an additional annual subscription that automatically renews, you can overlay the weather on top of VRF and IFR aviation charts. You can also share interesting weather photos from your area, and see photos other users have contributed neatly displayed on the map.
Additional options include weather warnings and alerts, complete with push notifications, to warn you of severe weather in your area. Great for the start of thunderstorm and tornado season! There's also an optional hurricane tracker, providing excellent details and projections for the path of storms as the season looms near.
MyRadar currently shows weather for the United States (including Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, when HD Radar is enabled).

Lightning! The first version of our lightning feature is now available; when enabled, lightning flashes will overlay on top of the radar in sequence with the animation! This gives users the ability to gauge intensity and frequency over time as storms move. To enable it, tap the "Layers" icon (3rd in from the left), then at the very top, tap the "Hi Def Radar" layer, then enable the switch that says "Lightning". Future versions will have the option to show fixed strike icons and include the ability to alert you when lightning is near!
We've also fixed a glitch that caused ads to show up in the forecast for some users who had purchased ad removal.
Ratings and Reviews
We live about a mile south of one of the weather radar sites here in SE Arizona. The beauty of this app is the ability to view the 2D weather radar in virtually anywhere in the U.S. The GPS location feature initially places the user dead center in the middle of a regional map. Options allow viewing the map as simply a basic road map, a terrain feature map, or in satellite view. And just like the weather maps on TC the density of rainfall is color-based. Haven’t had the opportunity to view snow or hail as yet, but the app does display weather in motion for roughly the previous 30 minutes providing the user with a pretty good idea of what’s happening. Zoom in or out at will from an acre or two right out to at least the nation as a whole. Haven’t tried beyond that. If one has Alerts activated you will get something similar to that which I received this morning: “Rain expected in 25 minutes”. Really?? Yep. Rain started about 30 minutes later!! Another cool feature is the fact that wildfires are also displayed on the map. Clicking the fire icon reveals things like status, size (acres), %containment, started, human or natural caused, etc. Very handy this time of year during fire season here in the western states. Looking closer one can view the actual outline of the fire at it’s location on the map. Don’t think I covered everything, but the app is easy to use and intuitive, and a bit of exploring reveals some neat features!
Thank you so much for such an awesome review, it really makes us feel great when we see all this hard work put to good use, makes it all so worth it! If you ever have any wishlists or things you'd like to see, send them off in an email via feedback at myradar.com! We're always looking to improve the app!
Fun, smart app..GET IT!!
It's exactly what I expected and more as far as details reliability and ease-of-use. As much as I travel, this really gave me some neat perspectives of places that going without having to go online and find it. It's right at my finger tips. I have the free version and I know people are talking about the ads being a problem. Seriously? It's there but, so non intrusive. And, admittedly when you look at the app for the very first time you WILL feel daunted by it. All I say is (get ready to snicker) is play with it. You can't screw it up! Even if you do it's so easy to reset it and start from scratch and it's not tedious to get it to do all you want it to. Living here in Georgia and having so many friends in Florida trying dealing with (for those that stayed) and those who evacuated Hurricane Irma, it really came into it's worth with me being able to, in detail, see what the hurricane was doing and it's possibilities further down the line as it made its way to me. Believe me I AM NO WIZ when it comes to apps. But this is so easy and fun with all of the possibilities you can layer on. For example, you can add the details of how you want to see your weather in nearly every aspect. Couldn't recommend it more. I do not know the developer and was not compensated in any in order to give my review.
Just Outstanding, none better!
Update after Hurricane Harvey: this app is beyond amazing, professional and Hurricane upgrade a must if you live along the coast as we do in Houston. I was able through the entire storm monitor the movement. Even able to move the weather cross aim pointer + around the storm's eye wall on radar to see wind speed and direction. It was uncannily how accurate it was. Very important info when riding out the storm. No other weather app out there comes close to the capabilities! NONE
I have been looking for a weather app with an accurate radar and the extra tools to have a full understanding of what is really happening, this is it. With my background in aviation and flight safety using the professional package is money well spent. Having all the tools right at your finger tips, all the weather real time symbology, NOTAMs, layered cloud tops to icing levels, and warning areas sets this apart from any other weather app out there. If you actively fly the subscription for the aviation maps would be the icing on the cake. Not only folks in aviation but many in other fields that weather directly effects your business would want this setup. Very glad to have found this app!
