Spring is just around the corner, and you know what that means – storms! The Midwest is known for having lots of crazy weather patterns that seem to pop out of nowhere (remember the record-breaking floods from last year?).
Sometimes, though, you may not be in a place in which you can access the news. You may even be stuck in traffic and see ominous black clouds looming in your direction, and you need to know what’s going on right away.
That’s where we come in the picture! We at Bodacious Cases proudly present five helpful apps that will warn you of potentially dangerous weather and help you plan ahead!
The Weather Channel (official app)
A longtime favorite and probably the most used weather app, The Weather Channel’s Official App is an overall solid app that houses a great selection of features. Users can access full weather forecasts and radar maps, and even video information about the weather from The Weather Channel. Best of all, this very credible and easy-to-use app is free in the App Store.
Want some color and fun with your weather? Then this is the app for you! Outside is a visually stimulating app that colorfully displays the current weather right away. This app also uses a “swipe” interface for viewing forecasts, and it can also notify you of certain weather conditions (for example, when it’s nice enough outside to wear a t-shirt). This app can be all yours for only $2.99 in the App Store.
Turn checking the weather into an imaginative, artistic experience with this app! Powered by WeatherBug, Weather Doodle is an app that shows the weather in a beautiful way with its animated art. You can view your weather conditions and forecasts in gorgeous animation. The app features several themes that can be downloaded from within the app itself. It can be purchased for only $0.99 in the App Store.
Storm Sim Free
Have you ever wished for a mean thunderstorm to pop up in the atmosphere over you, even if meteorologists insist that the week will consist of lots and lots of sunshine? Well, now you can make your own storm happen! Create your own perfect storm with Storm Sim Free! If you’re in the mood for heavy thunder with little rain, let it rip! If you only want to hear heavy rain against a window with only the occasional roll of thunder, be our guest. If you simply want to hear white-noise rain so you can sleep more peacefully, then your wish is granted. You can create your own storm with this app for free!
If you’re a storm-chaser at heart or simply a weather fanatic, then this is the app that will tickle your fancy! RadarScope lets you “chase” the storms without risking your life! It allows you to view the NEXRAD Level 3 radar data, along with Tornado, Severe Thunderstorm, and Flash Food Warning issued by the National Weather Service. You can view the latest reflectivity, velocity, and more in all of the United States, Guam, and Puerto Rico! This means you can see how the weather is for family members and friends who live in different areas of the United States. This fun app costs $9.99 in App Store, but it’s well worth the money!
