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.

    I always check this app first before I look at any other weather apps. It tells me everything I need to know for at that moment. These days I only look at other weather apps if I want to know what is happening in the next several days.

    Had a good opportunity to try this today. Lots of storms popped up. This app gave me a good heads-up into what to expect and when. Job well done. Thanks
