--- 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.
What's New in Version 1.9.8
Fixed a crash while in Airplane Mode
I live in the Pacific Northwest in an area that gets 60+ inches of rain a year. After I changed the precip alert to "any intensity" I got super accurate predictions. Before walking the dog last night I checked to see if it was raining and of course it was. Then checked Rain Aware which predicted that the Rain would end in 12mins. So I waited and subsequently had a dry dog walk. Love this app!
This app continues to improve. The 7 day forecast is much easier to view. I especially like that it shows the night temp separately. When other apps just show the low for a day, there is nothing that indicates the low is for the early morning or the coming night. They just show a low to happen some time in that 24 hours. This app does it better.
Pretty cool! Was eerily accurate this afternoon
Ok, so I have only been using this app in Northern CA (where it has rained a lot this month!). This afternoon has been characterized by on and off 30 min stretches of partly sunny alternating with 15 minute stretches of light windy rain. So far, in the first 3 hours of use, it has been very accurate. Almost creepy accurate!
