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.

    Great app but live tile not updating on 1520

    One of the very few, well written applications on Windows Phone. Worth every cent since BOM data costs money. BOM is the only "accurate"/reliable weather data source that covers all of Australia.

    Can you please get the live tile to update? I'm using a 1520. The app seems to be ok otherwise

    Daily surf report updates won't download unless I first switch off Nokia then turn on again. Nor does weather observation history. No customer service replies.

    Been using this app for years. Still the best

    Finally a decent app that uses BOM data for Australia. App is well worth your money. Would love to see some more development/updates to the app soon.

    Great app but crashes sometimes

    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.
