Question Weather App

What app are y'all using to track weather? I hate the Iphone Weather app. I coach baseball and football and need something a little more reliable so that I can get indoor practice facilities in advance, not at 5:30 when its already raining and the app says 0% chance.

I use Wunderground. It has 10 days instead of the normal 5. I has been pretty accurate for me.

I've used Weather Bug for years because it gives hourly forecasts that include humidity, which is important for dog scenting conditions. But, the bells and whistles and advertisements are getting heavy and slowing it down.

I have no issues with Weather Channel app and find it the best.

Keep in mind they are all weathermen. They all suck

I use it for the same purposes

Living in North Texas like me, I am always interested in the convective outlook (Hail predictor), and while wunderground is great it fails in this category. NOAA is best for almost all outlooks

https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClic...2&lon=-97.1309

Edit: These are not app's but you don't really need a dedicated app for weather.

Red Cross tornado app. Tracks weather for wherever you set the lications. Provides real time alerts and tracking. I use it to monitor weather in several locations and I’m very pleased

I have the following apps downloaded on my iPhone: My Radar Pro , Weather Live, WeatherLink by Davis Instruments which is actual LIVE data from people with Davis weather stations, WeatherBug, The Weather Channel, iHurricane used to track hurricanes and weather in the GOM, Accuweather, Primos used to check LIVE wind speed and direction for hunting/fishing

Do I use them all, NO. But I will cross reference several to compare data from each weather app.

In Houston the TV channels have to give an average number. Conroe is way different from Nasa.
Weather bug connects to a weather station 4 blocks from the house and is super accurate.........

Iíve found iPhone app to be pretty good, just 40% chance of rain or snow here means itís coming down.

Weatherunderground is better especially wind forecasts.

wunderground for the actual forecast and Myradar for an accurate radar. Been using both these apps for many years as I have to pay close attention to the weather for work and have found them to be the most accurate ones I have used.

I used The Weather Channel since it came out but the filler that has been added lately and broken parts of the app has prompted me to remove it and I am currently trying Accuweather and it is working well. Weather Bug is on tap if AW doesn't live up to my expectations.

Accuweather - it has an animated future radar. Helps to see what's coming specific to your exact location.
