Raincast (US only) displays the chance of rain or snow directly on the home screen icon, lock screen, and notification center. A beautiful app built with the idea of giving you the rain probability at a glance, Raincast makes it quick and easy to stay up to date on the latest precipitation forecast for your current location. The today widget makes it even easier by displaying the forecast right inside the notification center.
NOTE: Raincast is only available in the United States and requires location services and background app refresh.
- Precipitation probability on your home screen
- Today widget for quick access
- Reliable, accurate 12 hr PoP data provided by NOAA
- Lock screen alerts throughout your day
- Automatic updates based on your location
- Simple, beautiful forecast display
BACKGROUND APP REFRESH
Raincast uses the background app refresh feature to grab the latest weather data, update the notification center widget, and update the home screen icon. Please note, this is not push and we have no plans to support push in the future.
Never forget an umbrella again. The home screen icon displays the up-to-date chance of rain making it quick and easy to stay informed without needing to open the app.
Do you check the rain forecast before going to work? Before going out with friends? Create automatic alerts for any time of the day and quit losing valuable time. Raincast will inform you of the latest rain outlook directly on your lock screen and notification center.
Raincast uses NOAA 12 hour probability of precipitation data to ensure that the forecast presented to you is accurate, up-to-date, and reliable.
Automatically get updates for your current location - no set up required. Raincast updates the weather in the background while you're on the go.

I'll never be rained on again
The new update fixed all of the issues that I was having! Thanks!
This is now one of my favorite apps and I consider it to be an absolute essential. Being able to just swipe down and see the rain chance--plus getting an update on the day's rain each morning--is perfect for me.
Really great app
I love being able to see what the chance of rain is without opening another weather app. It's just always there to help me know. Its very accurate.
Some problems with the app:
1. The app is showing Tomorrow's forecast on the first bar instead of today's.
2. It won't refresh in Notification Center unless you have location services set to Always which drains the battery. It also seems that the main app needs to be running.
3. The badge app icon doesn't work unless the app is running.
Nice concept, but needs more work.
