Description

RadarScope is a specialized display utility for weather enthusiasts and meteorologists that allows you view NEXRAD Level 3 and Super-Resolution radar data along with Tornado, Severe Thunderstorm, Flash Flood and Special Marine Warnings, and predicted storm tracks issued by the US National Weather Service. It can display the latest reflectivity, velocity, dual-polarization, and other products from any NEXRAD or TDWR radar site in the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, Korea, and Okinawa, as well as reflectivity and velocity data from Environment Canada radars. These aren't smoothed PNG or GIF images, this is native radar data rendered in its original radial format for a high level of detail. Whether you are scanning reflectivity for a mesocyclone's tell-tale hook echo, trying to pinpoint the landfall of a hurricane's eye wall, or looking for small features like velocity couplets in the storm relative radial velocity product, RadarScope gives you the power to view true radial NEXRAD weather radar on your iOS device and Apple Watch. When there are any Tornado Warnings (outlined in RED), Severe Thunderstorm Warnings (YELLOW polygons), Flash Flood Warnings (GREEN polygons), or Special Marine Warnings (ORANGE polygons) in effect throughout the US, tap the warning button in the top right corner to browse the list of current warnings, view the details, and even zoom to the selected warning on the map. Pinch or stretch to zoom in and out. Drag your finger around the map to scroll. Tap the radar sweep button in the toolbar to switch radars. Select one of the 156 different NEXRAD radar sites and 45 Terminal Doppler radars in the US, 30 other radar sites in Canada, and 2 in the Republic of Korea. Plot your current location by tapping the location button and optionally report it to the Spotter Network. Tap the play button to download and animate over recent images. Display the names of over 25,000 cities and towns on the map as you zoom and scroll. Tap and hold the color legend to see the data values. Meanwhile, RadarScope will retrieve and display updated data automatically and intelligently (approximately every 2 to 10 minutes, depending on the radar scan strategy). You can display data from NOAA's public access web site, our optional WDT feed (the default), or your AllisonHouse subscriber account. Spotter Network members can report their location and view the locations of other spotters. The RadarScope Pro subscription is an optional auto-renewing subscription with two different tiers to choose from. Super-res products are still available to all RadarScope users without purchasing a subscription. RadarScope Pro Tier 1 is an annual subscription that provides access to real-time lightning data that animates along with the radar loop and up to 30 frames of radar data, including extended loops of Super-Res Level 2 data. Tier 1 subscribers can also access a data interrogation tool to quickly determine data values for specific radar pixels and an optional dual-pane mode for viewing two radar products side-by-side. RadarScope Pro Tier 2 is an annual or monthly subscription that combines all the features in Tier 1 with more advanced features, including SPC outlooks, local storm reports, a 30-day archive of all radar products, estimated hail size contours, rotation (azimuthal shear) contours, and the ability to use subscription features across multiple platforms. RadarScope Pro subscriptions are charged to your App Store account. It will be auto-renewed within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period at the same price you originally paid. Subscriptions may be managed and auto-renewal disabled via your iTunes Account Settings after the purchase. Once purchased, the subscription cannot be cancelled during the active subscription period. WDT is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Our privacy policy is available for review at: https://www.weatherops.com/privacy-statement Please visit our web site for more information.

    I’ve been a long time RadarScope user, both on iOS and MacBook, and have positively loved the accuracy and response of the app for years and years. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing freeze ups, crashes and other buggy tidbits since the last few updates.
  • Great even for non pro’s..

    I use fairly regularly since finding a few weeks ago.. Exactly what I was looking for to track storms here in Montana. Allows me to plan for road conditions and prepare for storms. Few drawbacks.. Needs better instruction for novice users who want to learn. The video walkthrough offered is useless. Also, like every other app, for the extra features u need to... Yup, pay extra. This is a paid app, yet they want more $ at every step along the way. I paid $10.. The infrastructure was/is there. Not like RadarScope is building radar stations and funding using the $ from app. Greed ruins everything. Unfortunately, u feel it here too.
  • Horrible App Support

    This was the best radar app. But it is now broken. The maps don’t move anymore. It’s useless! I just want a refund!

    As a meteorologist, this is a 6 star app. Lightening, minimal level 2 delay radar and spotter network so we can add NWS data if needed. Only complaint would be nice to have more than one radar one at a time. Excellent app, but not for a novice. Dr TOM
  • Appreciate the frequent updates!!!

    As someone who is constantly upgrading devices when Apple releases them, it’s super nice having the app optimized for them so quickly! This is a very polished app and I would recommend to any weather professional.

    This app is ineffective for the 10dollars spent. The app requires 100+ dollars for full function. Run away folks.
  • Very good radar

    Overall is probably the most detailed and accurate radar out there compared to other apps on the AppStore.
