Ratings and Reviews
When will it snow
Snow watcher gives me the hourly forecast for snow amounts. I have other apps which do not give me this level of detail. I hate driving in the snow and snow watcher gives me the heads up if I need to be concerned. I check all locations for my family members also. The weather advisory from NOAA is a great feature. This app is well worth the cost.
Best snow forecast app
This app does what it does better than any other weather app I have tried: It shows clearly how much snow is forecast and when (including hourly amounts) at any US location.
This is the best of several forecasting apps that I have tried.
How to improve:
1. Show elevation of forecast area. This can make a drastic difference, and there is no easy way to tell where the pin drop is for a given resort.
2. Updates are very slow and done serially. You can watch each total slowly change in order after opening the app.
I hope the author updates for iOS 11 because I am really missing this app.
