Radar data covers all of the UK and Ireland, while the surface pressure starts in the mid-Atlantic region stretching to Eastern Europe, going as far North as Iceland and as far South as Spain. Your current location is (optionally) overlaid on the map as well.

Configure the display for just the information you want to see including time, temperature, weather description, weather image, feels like temperature, wind direction, wind speed, wind gust, visibility, relative humidity, ultra violet index (UV) and air quality index.

Recently changed in this version

Fix for some higher resolution devices where to many weather warnings were pushing the navigation off of top bar in the app. For these devices, the multiple weather warnings are now collapsed down into a single warning icon.

    Best I've seen yet. (And the most accurate too!)

    The Met Office could really learn from this - it's their data, but presented far better than their app or website and not dumbed down. Spot on.

    Thanks for the quick fix for the 'too many warning icons' problem. Shows the Met Office data much better than their own app.

    Loads of accurate info, lots of options to customise so you can see what you want. Simple and clear to see all info with a few flicks of the finger.
