Top 5 iPhone Applications To Use In Severe Weather

Top 5 iPhone Applications To Use In Severe Weather

With the impending threat of Severe Weather across the British Isles this weekend, we thought that it would be a good idea to take a look at the top 5 Apps to use during severe weather around the world.

55.  Weather Underground is a popular online weather service, and its app doesn’t disappoint. The app is very clear, intelligently designed, and packs a ton of info under the hood for anyone wanting to find it. Weather Underground’s first screen is divided into rows displaying basic information such as current temperature, upcoming temperature, and a map, which is perfect for quickly finding the weather. More detailed information on each row can be found via swipes and taps, or by using a navigation bar at the bottom of the screen.  Users can even access the Weather Underground radio and Twitter feed from within the app.

4.  AccuWeather is a great application if you want to follow not just storm updates but all aspects of the weather, including rain, wind,fog,snow,hail,sleet and much more. One of my favorite features is its risk monitoring system, which breaks down severe weather conditions (rain, ice, fog, wind, etc.) and shows the chance of each of them happening over the course of the next 8 hours.  Another feature that set AccuWeather apart was its indices feature, which shows UV, Air Quality, Flu, and Arthritis indexes for the day.  AccuWeather also has a tendency to provide you much more information than you actually need, and in a severe weather situation, the more information the better!

Met-Office3. The Met Office application is one of the best Applications to use if you live in the UK.  It provides you with a 7 day weather forecast, rainfall radar, severe weather alerts system (including maps) and even links to watch live weather forecasts online.  You can view weather maps of the UK straight from the app, and all the data is downloaded regularly from the Met Office servers. Although it may lack features seen in other programs, it will provide you with the most accurate weather data and is also completely free.  The app has a great section for viewing UV Index and temperature information.  We would advise most of our UK readers to download this application if severe weather, like major snow, is forecast in their area!!

app-the-weather-channel

2. The Weather Channel is still one of the best weather applications around to date, providing both the UK and the USA, and even many other places around the world, with some of the best up to date weather forecasting on the planet.  You’ve got your own choice of backgrounds that reflect the local weather conditions, and in the new version of the app (version 5.0) there is improved location management using TruPoint, which allows for more accurate and precise local weather forecasting.  The app also features push notifications for severe weather and you can take pictures of the weather directly from the app and share them with your friends or publish them on weather.com to show off to everybody!

swl1. WeatherAlerts is a Simple, no-nonsense app for quickly notifying you of severe weather alerts in a chosen radius from your current location, including Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Snow Storms, Frost Advisories, Flood/Fire Warnings and hundreds more. Alerts you with sound even when the phone is lying unused with screen off!  If there is a severe weather alert issued or severe weather is likely to hit your area then this is the application for you.  This application is currently available to US customers only for the reasonable price of $3.99 and that’s not bad considering it could one day save your life.  Our UK readers should defiantly check out the Met Office Application for severe weather reports as its still regarded as one of the best.

In addition to these applications, there are a number of Twitter accounts that we recommend you follow to keep up-to-date hhhtwhile on the move and out of range of some applications. These accounts could save you time and maybe even save lives and they include @UKSnowAlerts, @Newsroom247, @UKSnowUpdates, @HAtraffic_swest, @AASORT and @MetofficestormsThese accounts provide the latest information live over twitter and their respective Facebook pages should you need it.

We hope that you have found this article interesting and will consider following us in the future!
