Get Your Weather Forecast From Zombies With Weather Zombie

Weather Zombie (Free) by Lycos, Inc. prepares you not only for a zombie apocalypse, but mainly for what you should be wearing to keep warm, or keep cool, when the inevitable disaster strikes.

I snagged this app because, well, let's be honest here -- we all know I have an affinity for zombies; I can't help myself. A zombie weather app was one thing I haven't seen yet, so I was more than intrigued.

I really thought it was going to be a slow app, with little to offer, but I was pleasantly surprised. The forecasts are spot on and I love the design.

Although it takes a few seconds to load the app initially — as most weather apps do, in my experience — the app is pretty feature rich, and very accurate.

Not only does this show you the weather forecast for the day, it has a lot to offer. It also shows you the "feel like" temperature, along with actual temperature, humidity percentage, dew point, visibility, wind speed, and the UV index. Each temperature and weather condition is accompanied by a zombie slogan. My favorite is, "Sssuunn … buurrnnss *ggnnnarrr*"

You have access to your current conditions, hourly conditions, and a seven day high/low forecast. And, amazingly, it even has radar for precipitation!

If you want to add multiple cities to this weather app, you can tap the button in the top right corner to compile a list of the places you would like to have handy. After all, the zombie apocalypse doesn't just happen in one city. Be prepared.

I did not expect such a full-featured weather app when I first happened upon Weather Zombie. I am impressed with the accuracy (powered by AccuWeather), content, and overall design. I will be hanging on to this one for sure. Why would I ever want to go back to zombie-less weather forecasts?

There is a tiny ad that pops up when you first open the app, but as far as I can tell, once you click the "x" to get rid of it, it doesn't show up again (until the next time you open the app).

Weather Zombie is available for free in the App Store for all of your weather apocalypse needs. If you're a fan of the undead, or just want to get in the Halloween spirit, this weather app is a must.
