AD FREE version of Tempest Weather Radar. Tempest Premium also adds double tap zoom and zoom level "memory" and radar animation time-stamp.

Tempest weather radar displays real-time NEXRAD (Next-Generation Radar) and TDWR (Terminal Doppler Weather Radar) animated storm radar images overlaid on top of Google maps.

Weather radar data is refreshed every 6 minutes. Although the default user settings are appropriate for most users, some users like to configure optimal settings for their area and personal taste. Tempest weather radar allows users to change the number of frames per animation, cloud transparency, radar type and range of both NEXRAD and TDWR radars. Storm tracking, ground clutter elimination, image smoothing and rain/snow options can also be controlled. Since the familiar Google Maps is used, the user can enable Satellite View and Traffic View if desired.

Base Reflectivity N0R
Base Reflectivity N1R

Although initially designed as a weather radar only solution, Tempest weather radar can retrieve current local weather conditions, 10 day forecast and hourly forecast data by tapping on the red location icon. Alternatively, "long pressing" on a map location will bring up the weather forecast of that location.

Currently, Tempest weather radar overlay data is available only for the USA and the bordering regions of Canada and Mexico. Also, Tempest weather radar is currently only available on the android platform.

Thanks for trying Tempest Weather Radar. We hope you enjoy it!

This program is under active development.

    The radar is good but most of their forecasts and predictions have not come true...I use another site for that

    Used the free version for a long time. Have waited patiently for an add free premium version. The best, non-techie oriented radar app in the store. Excellent. I'm rating 5 stars, but a home screen radar widget, alert/watches/warnings map overlay, and alert/watches/warning notifications would put it out of the park and help me remove some other apps from my tablet.
