Radar Cast Pro - NOAA Hi-Def FutureCast with Lightning Strikes for iOS

By WeatherSphere $3.99
This app is only useful for users in the US, including all 50 states and territories including Puerto Rico and Guam.

Developer's Description

Amazing hi-definition animated real-time futurecast radar images with snowfall and lightning strikes on a fluid responsive map that loads faster than any other app in the App Store. Plus see weather forecast, severe weather warning boxes, clickable storm direction arrows with details, clickable hurricane forecast tracks, wildfires, and current drought severity on the same map!

Shows both past and future-cast radar in full color seamlessly in one continuous loop, giving you maximum information with minimal effort.

Instantly show predicted rain start/stop times for any point on the map.

Allows you to control the loop speed, and also choose the interval between individual frames from 5 minutes all the way to 1 hr, and also change the number of frames shown in animation.

Plus this is the only app that automatically augments land-based radar images with latest images from NOAA satellites covering the Atlantic/Pacific oceans into one single screen. This lets you track and follow the upcoming hurricanes and storms all from the same map.

Easily bookmark multiple locations so you can do a quick radar + forecast check for all your important places in just a few seconds.

Easily share radar screenshots via email or facebook and twitter, or send a quick weather postcard to loved ones.

    Coverage Notes: If you live in a very-high-altitude town in Colorado (e.g. Fraser, Vail, Aspen), most likely this app will not meet your needs since radar beams get blocked by the tall mountains. Alaska coverage includes only the southern coastal areas, and does not include the Aleutian Chain. Also cloud coverage does not include Alaska and Guam.
