#3 Radar Scope($10 + $10 annual fee)

This is not your regular Weather app. Oh no it is not, Radar Scope is probably the best weather app available in the app store. There is no other app like Radar Scope out there. This app doesn't focus on providing you with a forecast on what the weather is going to be like today or next week or in a month. The app's purpose is to show you a radar of your location or location of choice and that is it. But it is just a radar, it is a really detail radar that is as accurate as you are part of the app and you are right there. The application shows you radars and warning for the following: Tornadoes, Severe Thunderstorms, Flood Warnings, and etc. An accurate date is being automatically retrieved every 10 minutes to give the most up-to-date information.

#1 Dark Sky ($4)

Dark Sky is truly the most amazing and best rated weather app ever, and I mean ever. Even though the it is not FREE like some of the other apps listed in this article. This might be the best $4 you will ever spend on an app. This weather app follows you as you go and it updates every 60 seconds. The up is able to give you a minute to minute updates up to an hour. So you can see exactly what the weather in your area will be in lets say 17 minutes from now. The app has a very elegant and visual look. Another positive is that the app has no ads and no interruptions, the purpose of the app is to give you what you wanted "forecast". The application is really light and it takes no space whatsoever.

This is truly the best weather app in the app store and everyone must own it.
