The Weather Channel app offers the best radar maps, local forecasts, & weather news available. With our app and live tiles, you can enjoy the best day possible with the best forecast available. After all, when you see the world through weather, It's Amazing Out There. 

Our favorite features include:
•	Trusted forecasts include hourly and 10-day forecast options (Celsius or Fahrenheit). 
•	Weather Maps: Fast, accurate, and localized radar maps offer past and future radar as well as severe weather alerts for storm tracking and tornado activity. With map layers you can select road or satellite views; activate hurricane tracking; and choose map layers, whether it’s cloud, radar, water temperature, wind speed, snow cover or more. 
•	Severe Notifications and Weather Alerts: Get alerts for severe weather and high pollen counts for any of your favorite location(s). 
•	 “Expect rain to start at 3:15p” No more guessing! If your weather conditions are changing within 6 hrs, we let you know the time it will happen.
•	Current weather conditions give you the rainfall from the last hour, “feels like” temperature, sunrise time, sunset time, wind speed, humidity, UV index, visibility, dew point, and pressure. 
•	Historical weather conditions allow you to see how your forecast compares to past conditions.
•	Live Weather Tiles: Offered in several sizes, whether you want the 1x1 weather tile, 2x2 weather tile, or 4x2 weather tile.
•	Social Weather: Report your weather conditions to us! We'll use the information to improve the forecast & map out what others are reporting or tracking in your area. Plus, your report will be added to your personalized weather history, so you can track your past reports. To complete your report, remember to take a photo and share it with your friends. 
•	Seasonal tools, like our pollen counts module and ski slopes finder help you plan your life around the weather.
•	Stay up-to-date with the latest weather news stories--from severe storms to bizarre findings. You can also watch our videos, which cover everything from your local forecast to climate change news.
•	Beautiful and easy-to-use interface.

    Brill weather app
  • by User 13/03/2015
    At first very good. Now, map no longer works and hourly forecast often totally different to summary forecast!
  • by Ian 11/03/2015
    Is the live tile supposed to be a pixelated mess, lets whole app down
  • by Emily 09/03/2015
    I really preferred the old layout. This layout is naff and complicated. I can never find the bloody forecast and even then it's very brief and wrong. Revert please. 5* rating before.

    Don't know what they're doing with this app but it's just getting worse. Keeps telling me now that I have no internet connection, connection is fine.
  • by Daniel 09/03/2015
    I don't get it. I have location turned on yet I have to enter a location? Why can't this do what all the other apps do and use my current location? Crazy.
  • by Francesca 09/03/2015
    What happened to the swipe to change location? And, it says I can't change my home location without making a profile but then it takes me to the settings menu... Good job again with updating (!)

    To many **** adverts, what was once a great app was changed to utter *****, the layout is now awful and every page is littered with adverts, will give it a little longer to cut down on them before it gets uninstalled.

    It's a little bit lag
