Some people can also get a subscription to the service, but we will keep an eye on it and re-evaluate
3 Appy Weather

You can track several cities at once and there are weather widgets to choose from. The only downside is that the app doesn’t support severe weather alerts. You can check those in the app, but that’s about it. There’s a free version and a paid version. We recommend the free one first.

That includes the current temperature, future forecasts, severe weather alerts, radar, and more. It also includes breaking news, lightning alerts, and pollen alerts. There are a variety of widgets, a separate tablet UI, and additional stuff. It doesn’t cut any corners. That said, all of these features mean The Weather Channel app is one of the biggest ones on the list and not a great option for fans of minimalism. Otherwise, it’s perfectly functional.
12 What The Forecast?!!
What The Forecast is one of the newer weather apps. You’ve probably seen screenshots of this app somewhere on social media. The app gives you funny quips that describe the weather outside.

It also includes hurricane tracking and news from Weather Underground. Additionally, the radar is fairly customizable with plenty of layers. The price is quite a bit steeper than it used to be and we understand if that price is too high for you, but the free version works the same with ads so it’s not too big of a deal to go with the free version.
