    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 Features:
    • weather radar and storm tracks overlayed on Google Maps
    • radar animation
    • use gestures to zoom, pan, tilt, and rotate the map
    • quickly switch to any of the 156 NWS WSR-88D radars across the U.S.
    • tap a storm marker for details about a storm, including:
    - estimated time of arrival (ETA)
    - distance and direction from your location
    - heading direction and speed
    - max dBZ and rain rate
    - probability of hail and several hail
    - max hail size
    • view a list of all of the storms at the selected radar
    • average storm heading arrow in the top right corner
    • your choice of Google Map type to display:

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

    Please consider emailing me ( or contacting me on Twitter (@SmithCodyD) with your issue or question before giving StormEye a 1 star rating. A good portion of the time I will be able to help you!

    When it was still fully functional, it was an excellent app. Still provides information on storm location, eta and data, just won't show radar image or storm tracks. Still useful.

    I used this app for a long time. I miss it very much. It's there anything similar around?

    Was a great app that I used to see radar of approaching t-storms and it had predictive vectors for the strongest parts of the storms. Now the radar portion is broke (no doubt a technology update to the feed that since the developer is no longer updating, doesn't pull in any longer) but storm vectors are still there so it is still helpful to get an idea how far away they are and if headed our way.

    This was a great app to track approaching storms when out in the field with the scouts. Unfortunately the radar no longer displays and I've read replies from the developer that the app is no longer supported and has been removed from Google Play Store. Shame, this was a very helpful app.

    Been using stormeye for years. It still tells me eta of storms which is awesome but sure wish you'd bring it back. I know you took it of playstore. Is there any chance you'll bring it back?
