Guys, it's getting cold out there! :cold:

What weather apps are you using right now to make sure you don't end up wearing swimming trunks in a snow storm?

Accuweather is a popular one, then there's eWeather HD, Radar HD, Alerts which is now on sale for 50% and there are tons out there.

Which one do you prefer?

Best weather widget is called the window: go to it and look out. You'll certainly get better results than any weather app (in my opinion). I use three different weather apps, they never agree and half the time none of them are accurate. Very happy to take suggestions on any that are actually right sometimes though.

I live in the Caribbean, and as any half-way competent meteorologist will tell you, predicting the weather over islands is hugely difficult, so any weather app or service is going to be hard put to produce accurate weather information. I have 3 three apps, on my Nexus 7 and my S3, that I use and then take an average of that info. AccuWeather, Wunderground and Yahoo. When it comes to hurricane season I use the NOAA website as my homepage on my FF browser on both the N7 and the S3.

The most accurate I've used is Arcus. It's not particularly flashy, just well designed with all the necessary info in a widget plus the option to have a sticky notification. It will advise of the chance of rain in the next hour, plus the usual forecasts, and tends to be uncannily accurate.

I've used a lot of weather apps since my first android phone and so far eWeather HD is the best, it offers so much more than any other app out it

I'm using Yahoo Weather app. This application is beautiful, useful and easy.You can get not only temperature forecasts but also detailed weather information like interactive radar, satellite, heat, and wind maps.
