Weather can be unpredictable. No matter where you live—it’s nice to know what kind of weather to expect as you head out for the afternoon, a weekend trip or a full-length vacation. Lucky for most of us, our smartphone is always there to tell us what the weather is like.
Not sure which weather app is right for you? Here are 4 weather apps we find to be very helpful:
The Weather Channel
One of the top-downloaded weather apps in the App Store, this free app gives you an all-around look at weather conditions. Simply type in your city and state or zip code and get a full forecast, including wind speed and direction, humidity and exact timing of sunrise and sunset.
Another free app, Fahrenheit simply displays the current temperature. While it’s a simple task, it does it in a creative way—by displaying the current temperature as a badge on the app’s icon.
Once you load your location into this app, simply shake your iPhone and the weather will update!
WeatherSnitch is also free (with a $1.99 version), and gives you a 15-day forecast. Look at weather by the day, week or month—depending on what you need to know.
We hope you won’t experience any severe weather this summer, but that these apps will simply be a way to tell you just how much sunshine you’ll get.
