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.

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

    The all works great to tell what's going on and what has been for the past hour. It needs to tell you what is coming in the future as well.

    All I get is a map. There is a fire in new Mexico and several in other states and this shows nothing. Maybe I don't have some setting right. There is another app call forest fire tracker that is very accurate and shows fires and possible fires.

    I'm really not sure how anyone could have a problem with this app. Best weather radar on the play store.
