Description

An app designed by and for weather enthusiasts, NOAA SuperRes Radar is the only app in that offers access to stunningly beautiful super hi-resolution radar mosaics for the continental US. SuperRes radar has 4 times the resolution of typical weather radar products (250 meters vs 1000 meters), so you will be able to view storm features that can't be viewed in ordinary radar apps. No other app delivers radar mosaics with this kind of accuracy in such an easy to use package. In addition to SuperRes Level 2 radar, NOAA RadarUS+ offers access to 3 km hourly forecast radar and the following features: - 3 and 6 day precipitation and pressure forecasts from NOAA weather models - Temperature overlay - Snow/mixed precipitation display (only on 1km base reflectivity radar layer) - 7 day forecasts and current conditions -- just press and hold for a second on the radar map. - Severe weather (flash flood, tornado, and severe thunderstorm) warnings. Tap on a warning box to display the full warning message from the National Weather Service. Note: these are *not* push alerts. The app must be open to view the warnings. - Cloud cover and satellite imagery for the continental United States - Advanced radar layers (echo tops, composite reflectivity, and storm total precipitation). - Play, pause, and step animations - Fast zoom in and zoom out - Choice of radar palettes - Multiple map styles (terrain, map, satellite, and hybrid) - Displays time of radar image either as absolute time or relative to the current time - Full screen, portrait, and landscape views - GPS locator that finds and displays your current location - Adjust the transparency (opacity) of the radar or cloud cover overlays - Radar clutter filtering and smoothing - Automatic refresh when new radar or cloud cover data is available - Search for a location by zip code, city name, or address - Legend for radar and cloud cover overlays - Saves and restores your last location and zoom level Note: Radar coverage only includes the continental United States. Alaska, Hawaii, and other US controlled territories are not included. Support: Please follow our Twitter stream at twitter.com/shuksansoft for breaking news and status updates.

    Very good app when it works. Got this app several years ago. Have had to delete & reinstall several times recently for issues.
  • Always there when I need it!

    Doesn't pick up light rain or snow. Weather Channel is the best.
  • Great weather app.

    This is great weather app. I’ve been a pilot for over 40 years and find this weather app one of the best I’ve ever seen. Also great for figuring out what’s going to happen when you’re home. No reservations. Good stuff.
  • Maps busted for weeks, no relief!

    I had been using NOAA Pro, thee weeks ago the maps stopped loading. I paid for this one and no maps here either. They need to get a map provider and distribute an update
  • I agree with "Glitchy" (March 28, 2018)

    I too have had this app for awhile. The most recent upgrade has made it worthless. Repeatedly, I can look out my window and see it snowing or raining, and I look on the app and see nothing! Looks like there should be clear skies! I have a free app from a local NBC TV station that I have come to rely on.
  • Some features are nice

    I only use this app for the 3 day or 6 day pressure / precipitation features. It’s good information to know when your driving a high profile vehicle across the US looking for wind predictions. I use different apps for more detailed weather information as this app is a bit glitchy.
  • Works well

    As this weather app kept asking me for a review every time I opened it, here it is, though I doubt Apple will publish it; negative reviews for this app, mysteriously, are well-buried. I’ve had this app for years, but didn’t use it because it wasn’t as good as my favorite one, the popular Hi-Def US Radar app that had an epic meltdown last year. This app has also had a meltdown as far as I’m concerned, and am removing it. Though it has a number of features I liked, they don’t work anymore. The “water vapor” radar images are split and shifting when opened, and more annoying is that the current weather radar images don’t move when the map is moved (zoom in or out, the storm images remain over whichever area you’re focusing on). The app seems to be experiencing the same glitches and issues my former favorite weather app did when it was being abandoned by its developers. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find a replacement for this, and what I look for is one that has frequent updates which indicate an effort by developers to maintain function and relevancy for users. Obviously (see the updates for this one) this app doesn’t meet that standard. NOTE: Trying to get app support is a joke. The developers refer you to Apple to “fix” your device. It’s not the device that needs fixing, it’s the app. Or you can uninstall/reinstall: doesn’t work. Or you can contact them: email them and get no response. Or just delete the app and find one from another developer. Check.

    This is my go to radar map for watching the Kansas storms brew up and head towards us. Simple to use, I just leave it in super res mode and hit play. I don’t have much interest in the other overlays it offers.
