As a self-professed weather junkie, I’ve always been a huge fan of apps from the Weather Underground. And the company has just recently added a new title on the App Store, aptly named Storm.
If you’re looking for a huge amount of weather data in one place, Storm should definitely be up your alley.
The high-resolution radar gives users animations of the past, present, and future storm activity. You can also select the nearest radar site to your location and receive more detailed reports on a storm.
With the storm tracks feature, the app will give you a detailed analysis of any upcoming storm headed in your direction with information like the precipitation rate and more.
Along with a handy iOS 8 Notification Center widget, the app allows you to customize push notifications to warn you of issues like incoming lightning or precipitation.
Storm by Weather Underground is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. With an in-app purchase of $1.99, you can unlock the ad-free version of the app for one year.
I’ve been using Storm since it arrived, and couldn’t be more impressed. It’s highly recommended for anyone needing more than just a run-of-the-mill weather app. I definitely know Storm will come in handy when severe weather season rolls around later this year in Texas.
