Weather - it's the first topic brought up in really boring conversations, and it's one of the few things that universally affects everyone. From millionaires to Pre-Schoolers, if it rains, you are going to get wet! That's why it's so important to keep on top of the latest forecasts, especially during these crazy summer months - you never know if you should pack sunscreen or an umbrella when you head out in the morning (choose wisely my friend).
Fortunately, these three apps can keep you up-to-date on all the forecasts and help you prepare for whatever lies ahead - rain or shine. We all have computers in our pockets nowadays, so there's no excuse not to get one of these apps on your phone. So embrace your inner Al Roker, and don't forget the sunscreen when you head to New Hope this weekend - it's going to be a hot one!
1. Dark Sky
This iOs app with the ominous name shows ridiculously accurate, up-to-the-minute forecasts and not only tells you IF it will rain, but when, how much, and for how long. Seriously, it's that good. Combine that with some of the most precise day-to-day and long-range forecasts money can buy (yes - the one drawback to Dark Sky, it's a PAY-for App running at $3.99) and you have the only weather reference you'll ever need. Galoshes not included...yet.
2. Yahoo Weather
For those pinching pennies - or simply unwilling to pay for the same info sticking your head out a window will tell you - there's Yahoo Weather, a FREE app that many still consider to be the best out there. Besides a generally accurate weather forecast (well, as accurate as weather forecasts go, anyway), this app is simply gorgeous to look at, with their design clearly inspiring Apple's recent re-do of their own built-in Weather App. Which leads us to...
3. Apple Weather
For those who don't want to spend any money (or even browse in the App-Store), there's a perfectly well-functioning Weather App built right into your iPhone (You lucky Apple-user, you!). It may lack the pin-point accuracy of Dark Sky, or the beautiful layouts and design of Yahoo, but honestly, what more do you need in a weather app then the temperature and a relatively decent forecast? Both of which this App readily provides. If all else fails, you can just tilt your head up and look at the sky once in a while...it wouldn't kill you to look away from your phone, you know!
