Picnics, road trips, and nights out at the ballpark are the types of memories that last a lifetime. All of this planning can be ruined in a second by an unexpected rain shower or cold-snap. But using weather apps is a great way to get up-to-date meteorological predictions on demand. Whether you’re leaving in 10 minutes or 10 days, these apps can help you be prepared for whatever is in the forecast.
The Weather Channel
The Weather Channel app is great for those who are used to getting weather updates on TV. While it breaks down temperature and precipitation predictions as you would expect, it also allows users to view area-specific broadcasts as well as national and global breaking weather news.
AccuWeather is known for its depth and precise data. This app can tell you about UV radiation, humidity, and visibility that can help impact your driving decisions and how much SPF you need to wear.
WeatherBug is powered by the largest network of professional weather stations, which can help give users a good idea of what to expect locally and globally. For those who suffer from allergies, this app can also help you decide how much Benadryl to take with its pollen count feature.
Dark Sky uses special algorithms that put together temperature, wind speed, and other meteorological data to predict when major storms are going to hit your area. It also has a feature that allows you to see past and future weather patterns in your area for hyperlocal forecasts.
The Carrot Weather app can be seen as an all-in-one weather app with attitude, that makes weather into entertainment. It pulls info from AccuWeather, Dark Sky, and The Weather Channel apps to offer forecasts, paired with sarcastic remarks or fitting movie quotes that can be personalized.
The Weather Underground app gets its data as users share live weather updates from their location. This paints an extremely accurate portrait of the current weather situation on the ground. The app also provides forecasts.
As you are planning your next outdoor expedition remember, not all weather forecasts are created equal, and no meteorologist or app can predict the future. However, these apps will provide you with the most up-to-date data so that you can pack a jacket, umbrella, or sunscreen–just in case. Now you’re ready for anything the weather has to throw at you, rain or shine.
