Simple yet powerful, this is the only app in the App Store that shows amazing real-time hi-def animated weather radar images in vivid color with lightning strikes and hurricane tracks on a highly responsive interactive map. You also get an awesome map based Notification Center Widget, live pressure readings from your device, weather forecast, severe weather warning boxes, snowfall, storm direction arrows, wildfires, current drought severity on the same map, along with support for Apple Watch.

Plus this is the only app that automatically augments land-based radar images with latest images from NOAA satellites covering the Atlantic/Pacific oceans into one single screen. This lets you track and follow the upcoming hurricanes and storms all from the same map.

Plus this is the only app where radar images will show up and start animating within 2 seconds of launching the app, even on a slow 3G connection. This is also the only map based weather app that keeps up even when you are rapidly zooming in and out, without any distracting flickering or other inconsistencies, and it will keep the animation going even as you are moving the map!

Plus this is the only app that allows *you* to control the loop speed, and also choose the interval between individual frames from 5 minutes all the way to 1 hour and also change the number of frames shown in animation.

Plus easily bookmark multiple locations so you can do a quick radar + forecast check for all your important places in just a few seconds.

Coverage Notes: If you live in a very-high-altitude town in Colorado (e.g. Fraser, Vail, Aspen), this app will likely not meet your needs, since radar beams get blocked by the tall mountains. Alaska coverage includes only the southern coastal areas, and does not include the Aleutian Chain. Cloud coverage does not include Alaska and Guam.

- This app is only useful for users in the US, including all 50 states and territories including Puerto Rico and Guam.

Customer Reviews

6+ (iOS 8.3)

Two stars for a one-dimensional app that falls short of the acclaim found in these reviews. For instance, the weather is over an hour behind, which—believe it or not—is over thirty minutes behind Weather Channel's fifteen to twenty to thirty minute delays. Additionally, Weather Channel's forecasting power, maps, and notifications are superior to those provided in this app. This app is good for quickly tracking weather activity that has occurred within the last hour or so, but it does not provide predictive tracking data (like the Weather Channel app does). Unfortunately, I'll have to keep searching for an alternative to that dreadful Weather Channel app because this one doesn't have the ingredients.
UPDATE: Had to subtract another star for its inability to render at certain distances. Zoom in and out at your peril, users.
EDIT: "Choose layers" and "settings" menus will not open in the latest build. Disregard any praise herein for the Weather Channel's abomination of an app. Minus a star for each.

We LOVE this app!!!

The radar in this app is much better than waiting the TV and waiting for weather alerts!! This app shows us weather watches and the VERY important weather warnings way before the television news/radio news and/or weather channel!! This app actually helped us to warn our loved ones of a tornado coming their way well in advance and at least five minutes before the TV meteorologists announced it! Lastly, this app actually showed my husband and I that we were going to drive into a rain wrapped tornado if we kept driving. So, we were able to stop in a safe place and watch the storm pass on the radar in this app before driving on home. Thank you VERY, VERY much for forewarning us and helping our family stay safe!!! We live in Texas, so we must stay informed about Mother Nature's activities daily!

Great but has some loading problems

This app works well as an all in one weather app, featuring 5 day weather forecasts for each city, an HD radar for precipitation, lightning strikes, hurricanes, the drought, wildfires, and other things. I really like using this app and have found it to be pretty accurate.
The problems with rendering from my last review seem to have been fixed, but a new problem has surfaced: the icons for the 5 day weather forecast are inaccurate and do not include the sun. For example, the app says that completely sunny days are only partly sunny, and the icon for this weather is a cloud. This used to work fine and is an annoying new problem. Please fix it.
Aside from the weather problem, the app works very well, and I'm glad I can rely on it since I live in Seattle.
