Weather Underground used to be a wonderful app and website. I liked it because it was filled with great weather information and was responsive and fast. Now WU is slow and hindered. The difference is the advertisements. The ads are displayed in the middle of the data you wish to view and seem to always take a higher priority to the data. The same great data exists in the app including hourly forecasts and lots more. I wish I could pay for an ad-free version. Otherwise, maybe display an ad at the beginning of app use. Sigh. Looks like I need to find a new weather app.
For me this has to be THE best weather app out there. Luckily there are 6 or 7 weather stations within approximately 2 miles of my location, the closest within 1/4 mile, that are feeding into the Weather Underground network. So yes that is indeed Hyper Local :-) . The way the detailed, and on the whole accurate, forecast information is displayed is very clear. 5+ *'s from me. Your mileage may vary :-) UPDATE,,, the severe weather warnings are no longer 'clearing', still getting warnings from weeks ago.
Great program but 2 comments/suggestions. 1. Need the ability to ignore certain weather stations that do not report correctly. For example, the station closest to my home always reports at least 5 degrees higher than others when the sun is shining. Would be nice to be able to switch to the "next closest" station and ignore that one. 2. Need a "follow me" feature for the severe weather alerts like all the other weather apps have. Thank you.
The app may be great elsewhere but here in 72653 the weather station used is very poor. It at times lists the temp 8° higher than the airport 1 1/2 miles to the west. The station is less than 3/4 mile from our home but current was stated as full sun but rain at our place was coming down in buckets and the sky was darker toward the station. I'd recommend WU switch to the airport. App won't let me!
*EDIT: Updates sometimes mean stopped features. This time it was the option to see weather for a favorite location instead of current location. Hope they fix this one too! * Otherwise... Great app, great features, great widget, great alerts. Compared notes with friends using different apps, and Weather Underground has had more accurate predictions. At first the rain alert-start and stop times-was annoying, but it is quite helpful. Full compliment of features plus customization make it a must-have app!
UPDATE: the current weather reporting is excellent, but it's forecast isn't as accurate as some other apps. This isn't that big a deal, and it is only slightly off compared to others. Also bare in mind that's it's very hard to forecast the weather and depending on where you live the weather may be more volatile so that may be what I'm experiencing. ORIGINAL: I've tried more weather apps than I'd like to admit. This, however is by far the best. Super simple design (that was recently fine tuned) and the most accurate forecast with lots of other information that's useful. Widgets are solid with decent customizability (I would like more options, but I'm picky about that stuff). Don't waste your time with other apps, seriously, just get this one and call it good.
