Australian weather & 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.

Note - surf reports and surf forecasts are now an extra $0.99.  The basic purchase price includes all of the regular weather forecasts and marine forecasts.

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.

Fix error with 3 hourly forecast - was crashing due to Weatherzone no longer supplying the UV index, which has now been removed.

    I have found elders the most accurate weather site and I have compared this apps accuracy with elders and the bom and its spot on and the live tiles are great,well worth the small investment

    Rubbish no mention of surf info. No forcasting info only states what may have been. Totally misleading at best.

    Installed this app on my Lumia 1020 was a waste time and my money does not show 4 day forecast on the flipping live tile nor does it show on your lock screen!! " Not worth buying!!!!!

    This appears to be a good app. I am only just starting to use it and will update my review later after more detailed use.
