    The " look out the window" app.
    [ The weather reporting is wildly inaccurate where I live. ]

    Humorcast. It's pretty darn funny some days and the forecast is as accurate as the serious ones. Today's weather in West Texas is "Hot as the center of a Hot Pocket". Totally accurate.

    Weather Underground ( when it's Storm app was available, it was the best )
    Sadly, Storm Radar was eliminated and replaced by a POS during the sale to The Weather Channel.

    NOAA Weather is not bad.

    Weather app? We don't need no stinking weather app!

    During the daylight hours, it's almost always sunny, if you don't see a shadow...check for the creosote smell, it rains on occasion.

    Either than that it's cool (January)

    Balmy 6 months of the years)

    Hot enough to peel the skin of your hands if you touch your steering wheel.

    Gotta tell ya
    We lived out on east Shea...
    Third floor
    Long stairs to street level...
    I loved the feeling of
    Opening the front door when it was 115+
    Climbing on my mountain bike...
    Blast down into the furnace...
    Such a rush...
    My wife hated the heat in Scottsdale...
    She broke our agreement to stay 4 years...
    Only time I didn't like the heat was when I was supposed to fly....
    Lotta canceled flights caused by 115+
    And
    Really funny landings...

    Yeah the air is hardly thick enough to support an aircraft.

    I look at three random forecasts then pick the one that looks best. Being the proprietor of a spaniel, weather is irrelevant, we have to go out anyway. Running madly in all directions, chasing a ball, following an interesting scent through a bramble bush and across a stagnant pond, all more important to him than the weather. I just tag along behind.

    For the last few years, we’ve had so much rain most of the year that the question is often “when”, not “if”.

    I won’t say it’s the best overall, but for “how long do I have” (until the it starts or stops for a moment), RainAware is great. It tracks the speed and direction of rain on the radar and estimates when it will reach (or leave) your location.

    Where I live, weather is volatile and dangerous this time of year. I find MyRadar to be more accurate than the Weather Channel's radar (supposedly it's chosen by airplane pilots)
