What is it about?

Lightweight weather app that only retrieves text directly from weather.gov. Get the current conditions and temperature for most airports and then get the 7-day text forecast for any of the stations. Minimize the required bandwidth and eliminate third-party data collection by asking for NOAA official weather stations. You can add more weather stations (most are K+ Airport Locator, but Alaska/Hawaii begin with PA/PH). In-app lookup for weather stations. You can add/ rearrange /subtract from the list. In iPad version tap on station to update an old forecast (since both are visible all the time). Because the NOAA data aren't updated that often there is a 15 minute time-out before an update is pushed.
