Storm – Precipitation Alerts, Radar and Storm Tracking only
Sky is weather app that offers a wealth of detail including high definition radar, advanced storm cell tracking, severe weather outlooks and real-time severe weather alerts. You can view current conditions, daily or hourly forecasts at a glance and in a more detailed view.
Storm puts radar front and centre with lots of optional weather information at your fingertips. When you launch the app, you can specify your location (or any location for that matter) and you get a picture of the current radar with a belt of additional information at the bottom. Tap on the radar image to access past and future radar animations and a layers button that lets you select different layers such as radar, satellite, wind speed and temperature and map overlays such as storm tracks, weather stations and wind stream.
If you allow the app to know your location, it’ll center the radar map around your location. You can save additional locations (and then access them) by tapping on the button to the left of the name of the location current displayed above the map.
The belt below the radar features current conditions, the hourly forecast, and a daily forecast. You can tap on each for more information. The daily forecast, for example, expands from four days to ten days, and you can tap on each day for more detailed information. Swipe sideways on the belt and you will see a button to upgrade to the to the ad-free version and settings. In settings, you can choose your preferred units of measurement along with which types of alerts you’d like to receive.
