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 for breaking news and status updates.



  • Don't Bother . . .

    OK, so I loaded this app version on my iPad, and it seems to work good. Then, my wife wanted it on her iPad. So from the app store I loaded version for $1.99. This newer version did not have the SuperRes radar display feature. It did not show the local storms here in Florida that my other radar apps showed. I wrote their support an email, and after 4 days, no response. So don't waste your time or money getting this app. No support, no accurate radar - what's the point?
  • None other like. Right to the point, weather radar. Not all the extra cra, stuff.

    Very accurate, useful and easy to use and customize. Used for approx three years and am still very happy.
  • Great app

    This weather app, once I figured it out, is great!!
  • Still the best

    If you are a non-pro forecaster in the continental U.S., this is the best radar app. It can’t detect snow, and it doesn’t work in Alaska. There is much more information available on RadarScope, but 95% of the time, this is my go-to weather radar app.
  • Great App!

    By DonaldLee
    This app is an excellent one for displaying radar images and current temperatures. What it doesn’t show - to my knowledge - is future temperatures and rain forecasts. Everything else is shown on a current basis, only, which is done very well.
  • Useful

    By LBinder
    I’ve been using this app often. It performs well for me and has helped me avoid driving in adverse weather conditions.
  • Free or paid

    By Terry.m46
    Free version is better! Just my opinion

    By manyfarts
    A little glitchy at times, overall effective. This has become my primary source for radar on my iPhone because of the speed the app loads.
  • There is a better radar app

    By BR HOG
    This radar is slow and the contrast isn’t up to par with some others. It looks washed out and slow compared to others that I have on my phone and iPad. I will more than likely delete this app, since it isn’t a go to app anymore.
