AccuWeather sucks almost as much as the Weather Channel. I found an Android app that I like a lot. It just pulls in the NWS info, has hourly readings and a radar, too. Paid version allows storing unlimited locations.
Not sure if it's in the Apple store.
There's also a free version. It's my go-to weather app. Simple but useful data display and easy to use animated radar (the scrubber that you can actually scrub is my favorite part).
I use NOAA Weather Unofficial (Pro). Also use MyRadar (Ad Free) Both just work.
NOAA Weather Unofficial Android App. It pulls all it's info directly from weather.gov, & provides no-frills weather. My favorite feature is the graph that plots temperature, humidity, wind speed, etc. over there course of the day. I've used this feature countless times to plan outdoor activities.
I've been using the "Pro" (Only $1.99, if I remember correctly) version of this app for several years. Many features, and a lot of useful data, within the forecast, and other areas of the app (e.g. Hourly, Maps, etc.). Has alerts too. I've tried many other weather apps, but I greatly prefer this one as far as the presentation of of data is concerned, and the amount of data available. Might take you a while to learn all of the available features and information, but for me, it's one of the very best at what it does. I get the beta version updates.
Other weather apps I currently use are Windy, Flowx, Radar Alarm Pro, RadarOmega, Meteogram Pro, and mPING, which in my opinion, are very good weather apps too.
I use the NOAA (unofficial) app on Android. Not exactly beautiful, but also usually right. There are so many variables to every other app. And it doesn't require a subscription or run your battery.
And for those that prefer a separate app to a shortcut, NOAA Weather Unofficial presents NWS forcasts well: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nstudio.weatherhere
No proprietary bells and whistles, just the NWS info.
I like the NOAA Weather Unofficial timeline. It's not as "pretty", but it's configurable and easy to read. You get a week, and can zoom in and out. The map in that app is pretty nice as well. US only, though.
There's a free version, but I got the pro version. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nstudio.weatherhere
I like this app because it takes official weather reports and such from NOAA and the National Weather Service itself
you can also have a lot of locations that you switch to by opening the left-side menu... it looks old school but it works
I read that a number of weather sources take raw NOAA weather data and skew it in ways that increase revenue. When weather is "worse", people pay more attention to it.
Weather.com was mentioned.
I really like NOAA Weather Unofficial Pro
Unfiltered data, no ads and lots of features. Many widget options.
For hourly weather you can choose to see wind speed, dew point, humidity, whatever you need. It also makes a distinction between the percent chance of rain and how much rain. So it's clear when there may be a high probability of rain but it's going to be a sprinkle if it happens.
There is also a free version with small ads.
They have a free app too. I emailed the dev and he has not responded yet. There's a big difference between 55 and 100 to 110mph. That's why I'm asking.
This weather app is amazing for travelling around the US. Using NOAA data, it lets you find the weather for anywhere in the US
I use NOAA Unofficial. There's a paid version that is ad-free. It costs literally a few bucks and is worth it.
Anything that uses NOAA weather info.
I run with:
NOAA Weather Pro
Another good one and it's fairly extensive and customizable.
Always get RadarScope
Best Radar app
It may not be the prettiest app, but I've been using this for years:
This one has been pretty good for me, have used it for about seven years now and it's regularly updated.
I use NOAA weather pro https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nstudio.weatherhere&hl=en_US&gl=US
There is also a free version https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nstudio.weatherhere.free&hl=en_US&gl=US
NOAA Weather Unofficial Pro. There's a free version, too. I've been using it for years.
NOAA unofficial weather app (pro version) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nstudio.weatherhere
There's a free version too, but I paid the two bucks since I use it all the time
I'm assuming you're in the US? Go to forecastadvisor.com, they'll tell you the most accurate forecasts for your area and you can go from there.
Anything that uses the National Weather Service forecasts should be fairly accurate. I recommend NOAA Weather Unofficial. Their layout is great and their forecasts are straight from the NWS.
I also recommend Flowx and Foreca.
Keep in mind:
1. Every weather forecast has a computer model behind it. No matter what company is showing you the weather, they're using one of a few different models. Flowx is great for familiarizing yourself with and seeing some of the different models.
Foreca uses the "European model," considered by many to be the most accurate. But it will never be 100% accurate. My advice is to use 2 or 3 different apps that you can cross-check to see different possibilities for your weather.
The Weather Channel and Wunderground are run by the same company and have the exact same forecasts. And the Wunderground app is terrible compared to what it used to be. So don't use Wunderground if you don't like the Weather Channel.
If you're on a computer, weather.gov (which is the official website of the NWS) is an amazing resource. Might not have the best looks, but tons of information.
I recommend looking at the "Forecast Discussions" from the NWS for your area and familiarize yourself with weather terms and how the weather works. Because a forecast is only as good as the computer model behind it, and being familiar with weather is your best bet in not having your weekend plans dashed.
NOAA and windy like many others apparently. Specifically I found this NOAA Android app to be super clutch: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nstudio.weatherhere
