The background (blue, orange, black) depends on the time of day and also depends on the current weather (rain, clouds, fog, etc).

Purchase includes one year full access. After a year, you can renew via an in-app purchase (priced the same as the app).

COVERAGE

Weather reports are available for nearly anywhere in the world. If in doubt, go to http://forecast.io and try your location to see if you like the report.

Radar is currently North America only, but I expect to support more soon.

The hour forecast is currently limited to US, UK, Ireland.



DAILY COMPARISON

When you're getting dressed, what do you want to know?

"How does today compare with yesterday?"

Weather Nerd includes a nice daily comparison:

"Today is 9° cooler than yesterday. No rain."

This makes it easy to grab the right coat.


MINUTE-TO-MINUTE FORECAST

Weather Nerd also gives you minute-by-minute rain predictions for your exact GPS location. Powered Dark Sky's cutting edge "hyperlocal precipitation forecasting system", these reports show you a nice graph of the rain intensity for the next hour based on your exact location. For example, you might see:

"Light rain starting in 10 minutes, stopping 15 minutes later."


DAILY FORECAST

The daily forecast screen shows you a graph of the temperature, rain, and wind for today. Touch anywhere on the graph to view the forecast for a specific hour.

At the bottom of the screen you'll see the current temperature and other details like the high, low, chance of precipitation, wind speed, direction, moon phase, sunset, sunrise, humidity, etc.


WEEKLY FORECAST

The weekly forecast shows you a quick graph of the projected highs and lows for the next week, along with the chance of rain. Touch any day to view the full forecast for that day.


BEYOND 7 DAYS

Need to see the forecast for two weeks or two months out? No problem. Weather Nerd's calendar lets you view the forecast for any date within the next year.


NERD OUT

For the real weather nerds, the "Nerd Out" feature will list out ALL of the weather information.


NERD ALERTS

Weather Nerd lets you setup a daily weather forecast alert (in 15 minute intervals). You can turn the alert on/off for certain days of the week.

If you set your alert to 6pm or later, then the forecast will be for "tomorrow's" weather.


ABOUT THE WEATHER REPORTS

Most of the data for this app is powered by the unbelievable team at Forecast.io. They combine data from up to 18 different sources and use statistical analysis to create the most accurate forecast possible.


NERD WIDGETS

Some of you nerds like to use iPhone and iPad widgets. No problem. Weather Nerd comes packaged with 3 different widgets for your viewing pleasure including graphs for the "Next Hour", "Daily Overview", and "Upcoming Week".


Why a subscription? The average nerd checks weather 4-5 times a day. Over a year, that alone cost nearly 1 USD to our providers. That's not counting additional data used for radar tiles, alerts, widgets, watch, multiple devices, servers, etc. It would be completely unsustainable to charge a one time fee for a lifetime of data.

What's new in version 2.1

+ New: "pull up" access to faster location changes (#1 Requested Feature) + New: show "other" saved locations on radar + New: hourly icon on day legend + New: units setting for the UK (Celsius + MPH) + New: option to show cloud coverage on day graph (experimental) + New: week graph observes actual vs apparent temperature + Fixed: hour screen not showing/crashed on some devices + Fixed: issue where radar caused crash + Fixed: hour graph showed exaggerated intensity for non-us units + Fixed: rating link shown behind the form + Fixed: forecast.io link shown behind the form + Fixed: account status link shown behind the form
