--- NOTES ---
RainAware is for use in the continental United States. RainAware relies on National Weather Service radars and may not work properly if a radar is down or if the beam is blocked by mountains. In rare instances, ground clutter may result in a false positive for rain at your location. Extremely light sprinkles or drizzle may not always be detected. Precipitation times will change as RainAware adjusts to rapidly changing weather conditions. Precipitation can form suddenly or dissipate at any time. Works best when precipitation is moving. Times are estimates and have inherent error. Advanced settings are there to mitigate these issues.
What's New in Version 1.9.4

- Easily reset custom settings.
- Custom settings indicator.
- Fixed share button bug.
Love this Daring App!
I've worked at NASA in climate sciences and I'm aware of the tricky nature of rain predictions. There are bets made by scientists as to exactly when rain will strike. You can often see a gang of scientists under a portico outside with their watches in hand congratulating the winner when the rain begins at the time he or she predicted. Even the slightest change can cause a great difference in the time the rain begins. I love this app because it dares to predict what is so difficult to determine exactly, and it gets extremely close, always adjusting as weather circumstances change. It is as fluid as possible and I value its sensitivity to the flux of it all. Highly recommend.
Best for the next three hours
If you're having an outdoor event or doing anything outdoors where rain would force you into a big scramble, this app is perfect for you. It is accurate on impending rain times....how long it will rain....and how hard it will rain so you can plan accordingly. If your on the lake you can see that rain will start where you are in seven minutes so you can bolt back to the dock. Or if your entertaining outside, you can get your guests inside and cover up the furniture just in time.
A superb app for the most current inclement weather information and it's accurate prediction time for rainfall. The radar section is my favorite. I used this app in Hawaii for years, I'm pleased to advise its accuracy is phenomenal. I'm using it now on the mainland, it's still awesome. Thank you for continuing to improve your app!!!
