Want to find out if a storm is headed your way? Or receive severe weather alerts from the National Weather Service? Or get the latest 7-day forecast anywhere in the United States by just pressing your finger on a map? Or do you just want to unleash your inner meteorologist?
Then join the hundreds of thousands of other users who have download NOAA Radar US, the most advanced, fastest loading and highest resolution animated radar/satellite app in the app store. For the price of a cup of coffee, you get a beautiful app that quickly visualizes animated 1 km resolution NEXRAD Level 3 weather radar and satellite data from NOAA for the continental United States and shows you the progress of incoming storms.
Unlike some competing radar apps, Radar US displays combined data (mosaics) of all 150+ operating NEXRAD radar stations in the United States AND updates every 5 minutes. You can smooth the image for the best possible visible experience, or view the original data for the highest accuracy. View radar data as an animated movie or, with the full animation controls available in Radar US, single step forwards or backwards to get a better idea of the weather headed your way. Use GPS to set your location, or search for a location by city, state, or zip code. Turn clutter control on to suppress false radar echoes, or turn clutter control off to guarantee that you won't miss any light rain or snow. Choose from one of four different background maps from Google. Zoom in and out and pan and scroll. And, Radar US always remembers the last location you viewed so you can quickly check for updates to your local weather.
