StormEye provides detailed storm tracking information and weather radar images overlaid on Google Maps. For each storm, StormEye provides important information such as the storm's location relative to your location, where the storm is heading, estimated time of arrival (ETA), the storm's intensity, hail probabilities, and maximum hail size.

StormEye is free, without ads. You can support development by donating from within the app. Thanks!

StormEye functions by downloading data from the National Weather Service for the selected WSR-88D weather radar. The radar closest to your current location is automatically chosen; however, you can quickly switch to any of the 156 NWS WSR-88D radars across the United States. The downloaded data is then used to construct a weather radar with markers and tracks for every detected storm.

    This is a huge asset when storms are rolling through the area. I am in emergency services and this provides time estimates for approaching storms...time is critical.

    I'm a volunteer firefighter from Iowa and do a lot of storm spotting. I always feel I'm in the loop of what's coming my way with the weather. Thanks for a wonderful free app. My only concern is sometimes the data may be 20 min old but still 5 star in my book.
