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!

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.

StormEye only supports the United States because the National Weather Service is the source of the weather radar and storm data.

Recently changed in this version

New app icon

Removed the check for down radar since the NWS is providing inaccurate radar status to some users. BEWARE: StormEye will no longer warn you when a radar is down, so if a radar is genuinely down for maintenance you will probably notice strange behavior in StormEye (old or invalid data/radar, a gray box instead of a radar image, etc).

    I'll be using this app daily with the rest of my weather apps. One thing that is missing is a share button.

    I am a field adjuster and motorcycle rider that has tried a lot of weather related apps. Don't waste your time searching any longer this is the one. Stormeye is by far the best one out there
