Description

Stop wondering and start KNOWING. Time rain and storms to your exact location with RainAware. RainAware updates quickly to stay ahead of changing weather. We create a customized forecast just for you. Skies look dark? Doesn't always mean rain. Don't be surprised again, know for sure! ►Why settle for this: "There is a 50% chance of rain today" ►When you can have this: "It's going to rain in 1 hour 30 minutes" Stay dry when running errands, at the golf course, at the lake, or working outdoors. The uses are endless. ► Rain Clock counts down the minutes until precipitation arrives at your location. Rotates counterclockwise. When colors hit the top, it's raining! Estimates up to three hours out. ► Updates every minute to stay ahead of even the most changeable, crazy weather. ► See precipitation chances and intensity up to 12 hours away based on RainAware model simulation. ► View radar imagery with your location highlighted. Play animation to verify it's coming. ► See clouds forming or dissipating with high-res visible satellite imagery. Works at night too! ► Background weather images change depending on the threat. Lightning, rain, snow, ice. ► Live rain times keep you ahead of Airport delays and ballgame cancellations. ► Easily share your rain time on social media and warn friends and family of impending storms. ► Answers the question: When is it going to rain? ► Customize your precipitation experience with advanced settings. ► 5-Star Support: Let us help you get the most out of your app by providing feedback via the settings menu. --- EXPECTATIONS --- When it comes to weather forecasting, you can't be perfect. But you CAN be the best. While RainAware does an excellent job most of the time, unpredictable situations do occur. Think of RainAware as a tool. With time, you will gain proficiency. Make sure to use the advanced settings, they are there to maximize performance in your area. --- SERVICE AREA --- View the RainAware service coverage map before purchasing: http://www.rainaware.com/rainaware_coverage_map.gif --- NOTES --- RainAware is ONLY for use in the continental United States. RainAware relies on National Weather Service radars and may not work properly if a radar is down or if the beam is blocked by mountains. Extremely light sprinkles or drizzle may not always be detected. Precipitation times will change as RainAware adjusts to rapidly changing weather conditions. Precipitation can form suddenly or dissipate at any time. Works best when precipitation is moving. Times are estimates and have inherent error. Advanced settings are there to mitigate these issues.

    It has limited overall information and keeps predicting imminent snow at 44 degrees. Waste of $5. Problem has been fixed and is working well.
  • Accurate

    Usually is within 5 mins of when rain will show up or when will stop. Love this app
  • Highly tune-able hyper-local precipitation forecasts

    I have some very advanced radar apps on my phone but I always use rain aware in conjunction with them because of it’s easily tune-able interface
  • Best for precipitation for my area!

    This app has been very accurate for me. I’m happy to finally see an update for this app, and that the update brings iPhone X support for the resolution. + radar images load quickly and are usually only a minute old + accurate for me here in the Minneapolis area + you can adjust the clutter (and other things) filtering to better fit your area + I can see the rain prediction by time and intensity via a couple display options. - closest weather station to my home is 19 miles (doesn't seem to affect anything other than current conditions being a bit off).
  • Don't waste your time

    This is highly innaccurate. More often than not, I can be standing in rain and the app will tell me it's not raining at my location. Don't waste your time.

    RainAware is the most reliable weather app I have ever used!
  • Location accuracy is bad - UPDATE 2 to 5 stars

    I live in Florida and really wanted this program to work. It is everything I wanted, except accurate. It is a full half-mile off from my IPhone compass location, which is extremely accurate. In Florida, a half-mile is the difference between getting drenched in a thunderous downpour and working on your tan. I have been drenched twice by relying on it. If they can fix that problem. I would give it a solid four stars. Update: After using this program for a couple years, all of my concerns about accuracy have been fixed. I doubt if you can find a better program for the essentials you need to plan around local weather changes. With family spread around the country, I can quickly zoom into their local weather as well.
  • Great for outdoor activities

    Great app and good predictor of rain - I set the rain tolerance to zero.
