About this app

LOCAL WEATHER FOR AUSTRALIANS
WillyWeather is a feature-rich weather app that includes BoM radar and satellite, detailed wind, rain, tide, swell and UV forecasts, as well as moon phases, and sunrise and sunset times.

Going beyond the average weather service, we process and fine-tune forecast data to the specific coordinates of over 17,000 Australian locations including all suburbs, towns, beaches, rivers, parks, lakes and islands.

WEATHER DATA
• WEATHER - Seven day BoM weather forecasts tailored to each location including min/max temperatures, and detailed weather descriptions.
• RADAR - Raw BoM radar data, refined, processed and integrated with Google maps.
• SATELLITE - National satellite view, displaying cloud cover for the entire Australian continent integrated with Google maps.
• TIDES - The most comprehensive tide times system in Australia, bringing together BoM standard port data with offsets from the Australian National Tide Tables and various state based marine agencies. Includes every beach in Australia, and many river systems and inlets.
• WIND - An amalgamation of the most accurate global wind forecast models gathered from the BoM, NOAA and ECMWF, interpolated to the exact coordinates for each location and vetted against real-time wind observations to deliver the best performing information.
• UV - Hourly UV index forecasts, including alerts outlining extreme conditions when there is risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure.
• MOON PHASES - Full moon and new moon phases, illumination and rise and set times. Deeply integrated with tidal data.
• RAINFALL - Intuitive visual indication of rainfall probability and intensity for the week ahead, using the latest ACCESS models provided by the BoM.
• SWELL - Swell height, period and direction for each beach in Australia.
• SUNRISE SUNSET - Sunrise and sunset times with first light and last light.
• REAL TIME observational data - with trends for all locations including current temperature, feels-like temperature, rain today, rain last hour, humidity, pressure, wind speed, wind direction, wind gusts and dew point.
• BOM WARNINGS - Easily accessible and specifically targeted to the locations affected.

FEATURES
• Interactive rainfall radar and satellite, using Google maps: pan and zoom like you've always wanted through the national BoM radar network, and continental satellite view to see exactly where rain is falling around you, or your favourite locations. Our mapping features provides more control, and more detail than any other Australian weather source.
• Stunning, interactive tide, swell, and wind forecast graphs which allow you to easily understand the conditions at your favourite surf beach, secret fishing spot or upcoming hike - in real-time, and up to seven days in the future. We're particularly proud of our graphs, we pushed the boundaries to provide you with more context, and more detail for each weather type.
• A beautiful, simple and organised interface in which the weather data that is important to you is easy to find, consume and interact with. Our goal was to present accurate and relevant weather information to you, as quickly, and easily as possible.

Great layout! If you are near an NOAA station this could be a great app. For those of us in more rural areas of the United States, this Australia-developed app may be insufficient. It may be great in a metro area, just not here on Maine's rugged coast. There are a few apps here that do pull data from personal weather stations and NOAA buoys, but this is not one. It was worth a try, and again, the layout is great.

Hi Suzie, We can only report current weather from the nearest BoM weather station, same as every other app. The forecast, however, is always for your exact location. Greg, WillyWeather Support

Paid to get rid of ads and of course to support the team. Notifications are buggy, and I keep getting duplicate notifications. Can't edit notification categories once they have been added. Once you select a category, it will create a bunch of notifications for each element in the category, and doesn't let you pick, or even make it obvious which notification was created for that category. It's all or nothing. Overall the app is decent, but it leaves a bit to be desired.

An amazing achievement already but as a weather addict, I do have some requests and suggestions - of course ;) UI: I like the amount of data available in this app but the UI gets in the way of quickly going through it. For example, on the Weather page, the 7 day forecast and graph could use some padding, maybe a separator between them to differentiate the 2 sections. The bright blue and red used to show lows and highs just doesn't work imo. The icons are also very heavy within a UI that's already crowded. Notifications: I'd also love to be able to set notifications for conditions other than severe weather. For example: an overview of the following day before bed time, or a morning overview of the day. UV index advanced warning notifications would be nice too. How about rain warning? Graphs: I love the customizable graph but why are my choices not reflected onto the graph on the Weather page? That could potentially make for a one page glance overview if it were the case. Thank you!
