Weather Underground is my favorite.

Subscribed to ad-free version. Pretty good.

I usually just want to know if it's going to warm up in the afternoon so I have a couple apps that are really simple and one that's just pretty. But if bad weather is coming in I go to Weather Underground. It's a good resource for the possibility of the earth killing you due to pressure differentials in the atmosphere or whatever

Same here. Yahoo weather for the general conditions, but Weather Underground is my go-to when the weather gets hairy as it offers more detail.

Yahoo is nice for the 10 day general trends. It’s quick and easy to one-thumb through. Ads don’t seem to hang it up as Weather Underground seems to as it opens up slower and clunkier.

Maybe it's different where you are (some weather systems are more complex than others) but in Seattle any prediction beyond four days is science fiction. LA you could take it with a grain of salt out to six. Ten? That's some Nostradomus shit.

Gah, the ad animations crash the radar animations. I might spring for the ad-free, paid version, it’s probably worth it. Best weather service and app, hands down.
