Australian weather & (optional) surf forecasts and observations using data from BOM, Weatherzone & Swellnet.  Multiple double-sided live tiles!  BOM (Bureau of Meteorology) forecast data is value added to by Weatherzone with greater detail available.  Surf forecasts and reports are available as an in-app purchase for the one-off price of $1.00 - once you have purchased the surf reports, you will not have to pay for them again.

This version is the full blown Windows Phone 8 version with lock screen support, wide live tiles, fast resume and much more.

Each location being monitored can have it's own live tile .. wide, standard or small.

Lock screen shows current observations and forecast.

Note: the live tiles are updated as frequently as the locations observations are.  eg. Many locations have their observations updated every 10 minutes - your live tile will also update every 10 minutes.  Most other weather programs update every 30 minutes.

Weather observations and forecasts cover over 2,000 locations throughout Australia.

Surf forecasts and reports cover all states and include Swellnet's 30 plus locations.

Marine forecasts cover all BOM forecast areas.

High resolution rain radar is zoomable and pannable.   Backgrounds are stored on phone to save bandwidth and download time.

    Good detail in this app, and changing the lock screen is good too. I'd give it give stars if it could update on the Lumia glance screen too, like the MSN Weather app.

    Fantastic weather app for Australia. Uses BOM data and live tile works well. Good job.

    Great app, easy to use and provides all the data you could possibly need. There are a few handy features that include history graphs for temp, wind and rain etc.

    Downloaded the trial before I decided to buy. It is very accurate (in Sydney, Australia) and seems to work well for most features. Unfortunately I need to deduct 2 stars. Firstly, the live tile took a while to update! However, it now does display data and flips as it should. Secondly, the UI could also do with some improvements.

    Hands down the most useful weather app for Australia.

    Its not bad, very detailed and accurate. It would be good though if it could give your current locations' weather via GPS automatically.
