Why we love it
Storm Radar is the real deal, and provides tons of useful information. What's really awesome about this app, though, is that you can have it show as much or as little weather as you want. Customizable data layers let you focus on earthquakes, severe weather alerts, local storm reports, temperature, precipitation, and more. When it comes time for hurricanes and tropical storms, not many apps can beat the detailed analysis Storm Radar gives you. You can view historical and projected paths of the storms, along with complete information about each one. The app provides you with wind speeds, strength, arrival times, and a detailed analysis of the cone of uncertainty for that hurricane or tropical storm.
