Rainspotting will help you answer these types of questions.

What it does

Rainspotting will tell you if there is any rain approaching your selected location or nearby, its direction, when it is expected to start, and how long it is expected to last. If you're really keen, you can even view the intensity profile of any approaching rain to draw your own conclusions. Rainspotting can also send notification alerts when rain is approaching (upgrade required).


Rainspotting has coverage for most of Australia, USA, Puerto Rico and Guam.


While Rainspotting is remarkably accurate, the weather is notoriously unpredictable, and there is always room for improvement. You can help to improve Rainspotting's accuracy by providing feedback. Rainspotting should not be relied on to make life or death decisions, to guide missiles, to cool nuclear reactors, or in any other situation where getting rained on (or not) unexpectedly would cause frustration, dismay, discomfort, injury, fear, anger, hate, suffering, or a negative rating.


Rainspotting allows you to change the distance for finding nearby rain, the units used for the approaching rain speed, and specify whether to use the same colours that the source meteorological service uses for the profile chart.


Rainspotting requires an Internet connection, and when requested, makes use of your device's location services to determine your current location. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Rainspotting is ad supported to keep it free - ads can be removed and additional features added with an in-app upgrade.


Rainspotting makes use of secure servers to perform the complex computations, which saves your device's battery, and also means that the details of the selected location are sent to the server for processing. Rainspotting may also send service usage information in order to ensure coverage for popular areas and to improve the quality of the service. Details of the selected location may be used to provide more relevant ads.
