App Description

User Review: "It shows tornadoes and the path it's going showed it was going over my house so i evacuated my house when it was over i went back to my house and it was just a big pile of destruction i would be dead if it wasnt for this app."

See where storms, tornadoes and derechoes are expected to go! Plus see weather forecast, severe weather warning boxes, storm direction arrows, hurricane forecast tracks, wildfires, current drought severity on the same map, along with support for Apple Watch.

Plus this is the only app that shows hi-definition animated past, current and future-radar in a single continuous sequence on a fluid responsive map without having to press a single button.

Plus this is the only app that can instantly show predicted rain/snow start/stop times for any point on the map.

Coverage Notes: If you live in a very-high-altitude town in Colorado (e.g. Fraser, Vail, Aspen), most likely this app will not meet your needs since radar beams get blocked by the tall mountains. Alaska coverage includes only the southern coastal areas, and does not include the Aleutian Chain. Cloud coverage does not include Alaska and Guam. Also, push-notifications for rain will not work reliably in Hawaii, Guam and Alaska. Aviation Sectional Charts are not available for Hawaii.

Notes:
- This app is only useful for users in the US, including all 50 states and territories including Puerto Rico and Guam.
