Default Weather Apps?

With it being storm season again, the tornado's this past weekend, and with the forecast for tomorrow, I got to thinking about weather apps. Which one's do ya'll use, which one do you think is best etc?

I have the WAPP and just downloaded Texas Storm Chasers

X2 on Dark Sky. They claim their forecasts are "hyperlocal" and I have found that to be true. It tells you exactly when the rain will start and stop at your specific location and it's pretty darn accurate

I have Weather Underground, NOAA and my local news channel app. The local news channel app seems to be far more accurate to me.

MyRadar Pro for radar. It's worth the few bucks that it costs. NOAA Weather for forecasts

What exactly do you want it for? Forecasts, radar or warning notifications? I’ve not found 1 that does it all.

For forecasts I’ve found weatherbug to be accurate in spring/summer, wunderground for fall winter.

For radar, Radar Scope is phenomenal, worth the $10.

For warnings- get a NOAA weather radio. But all of th weather apps issue warning notifications based on noaa data.

Yall do realize they all get their info from the same place right? I use MY RADAR and Accuweather. The radar images are the same for everyone and Accuweather is close enough for me.

I, like most, use a combination of a few. One that I got from here is Windy. I also use Dark Sky and then my local weather station. I follow different NWS outlets on twitter for the entire state of Texas and parts of California.

I quit AccuWeather after some bs they pulled during the govt shutdown.

MyRadar Pro has a layer that shows wind direction and intensity. Its a pretty cool feature to have.

I like Weather Underground. Can set favorite locations and choose weather stations close to your home, deer lease, or wherever you want to follow. Forecasts are typically pretty accurate, even the hourly one for wind and precip.

Also has a cool feature for "Smart Forecasts" where you can select whatever conditions you want to track, and it will give you a graph of what to expect. I have one set for Hunting where I teach high barometric pressure and low wind speed for ideal conditions.





The app also has sun and moon info that's helpful for hunting.

Is My Radar just a radar (which would make sense) or does it have forecasting?

I use dark sky for my hunting website.

TheHunterSight.com
Game, Property, and Trail Camera Management

Screenshot I took of my phone awhile back. It has a 7 day weather forecast tied to each hunting property you have

That caught my attention. You build race cars and have to chase storms? Just curious.


I use most mentioned above and don't have a favorite.
