--- NOTES ---
RainAware is ONLY 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.

Ratings and Reviews
The look and feel of this app is superb, in my opinion. It is clean and free of clutter, while making access to the core information instantaneous.
As to accuracy...well, its a weather forecast, folks. Any meteorologist will admit there is art as well as science in the profession. Im not sure what RainAware uses as its data source(s), but I have found it at least as accurate as NWS, Accuweather, etc. The link to radar imagery allows the user to draw their own conclusions as to the adequacy of the forecast.
RainAware fills a very specific niche, providing ultra short term predictions.
Hasn't been correct since downloaded
Example: checked RainAware on 1st tee, because clouds appeared in distance, showed no probability of rain (Dry). By 5th hole (hour later) pouring rain, lightning in distance, horn was sounded. Really, checked RainAware - Dry. Really?
Coordinates shown in app are correct. What gives?
RainAware has been this inaccurate since downloading. It can even warn of rain when it's actually raining. All positive reviews must be that it very accurate regarding the fact that is dry, when it actually is dry. As far as rain predicting - a joke.
At least sits a humorous conversation piece while getting soaked (or maybe it was imagination that I was getting rained on)
Would give zero stars if possible
Accurate rain predictions
Love this app. Well worth the $4.99 (btw, the first and only app I have paid for!), recommended by my friend the hunter. Whether it is walking the dog or entertaining the grandchildren, the ability to see if, when, how long, and where, we might experience rain is invaluable. Highly recommend to everyone, no matter your activity level - you don't have to be the outdoorsman to utilize this app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
