    Default Weather Underground to Release an iPhone App


    Weather Underground was the first online weather service but up until now, there was no iPhone-specific app for it. This is all about to change with the upcoming Weather Underground app set to arrive in the App Store soon.

    The free app will be taking advantage of official weather stations as well as the huge network of over 23,000 personal weather stations around the world. What this means is that users will have the ability to get current weather readings for much closer locations. The National Weather Service station closest to the area you are seeking will be the one providing information to you when you search.



    The services website displays weather information on an interactive weather map called WunderMap®. The upcoming iPhone app includes WunderMap and a number of overlays which can be toggled on or off, including animated radar, satellite, webcams, and severe weather updates. Unlike many weather apps that can be found in the App Store, the Weather Underground app is said to have better stability and is relatively fast. According to Weather Underground, the feature set of the app also includes the following:

    • 7-day forecasts including text summary
    • Hourly forecasts including sunrise and sunset
    • Saved favorite locations and recent searches
    • Twitter integration – share your weather with Twitter friends and follow the latest weather trends on the wunderground.com Twitter feed
    • Snow and winter sports reports
    • Leading weather commentary from Dr. Jeff Masters
    • Tropical Weather and Hurricane Coverage
    • National Weather Service radio

    It is expected that the app will be in the App Store in the near future. This specific post will be updated with the appropriate link when it’s up.

    Let's hope the radar map is accurate unlike some of the apps I've used.
