The only 3D radar on iPhone® and iPad®, Weather Lab is for people that want to get the most out of weather radar. Dive deep and analyze real-time NEXRAD Level 2 data in rich, interactive perspectives. Requires iPhone 6, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4 or newer. WHAT'S IN THE BOX There are two levels of Weather Lab–one is a paid in-app subscription. Keep it simple or go deeper with advanced radar inspection tools and access to more NEXRAD Level 2 products. Both give you the richness, power, and fluid control you demand to help you gain an enhanced mental model of your surroundings. Weather Lab: Offers reflectivity and the radar views of scan (lowest scan) and volume. Weather Lab PRO: Access all five NEXRAD Level 2 products and all radar views (including all angle scans). THE POWER OF 3D The Earth is not flat. Neither is the weather. The ability to view radar in 3D — the space in which it was captured — helps create a better mental model and improves situational awareness. Interacting with a more natural and fluid 3D environment assists you with the analysis of this complex visual information. To make this possible, we built it using Apple's high-performance Metal graphics layer. VIEWS Gain deeper insights by displaying and cutting through radar volumes in different ways: Scan - Display radar in the form in which it was captured: A full circle scan pointing into the sky at a constant elevation angle. [Weather Lab: Lowest scan. Weather Lab PRO: Any scan in the current VCP.] Volume - View the radar as four combined 3D isosurfaces, giving you the at-a-glance ability to understand the big picture. Horizontal Slice (Weather Lab PRO) - Since any given scan ascends through the altitudes at an angle, a mental leap is required to understand what is happening at a single altitude. Now you have the ability to see a specific altitude. Vertical Slice (Weather Lab PRO) - Cut through the radar volume vertically, creating a "wall" of data to allow instant interpretation of what is happening through all altitudes at once. PRODUCTS Level 2 NEXRAD Radar: - Reflectivity - Velocity (Weather Lab PRO) - Differential Reflectivity (Weather Lab PRO) - Correlation Coefficient (Weather Lab PRO) - Spectrum Width (Weather Lab PRO) COVERAGE SITES Contiguous United States: 143 Alaska: 7 Hawaii: 4 Republic of Korea: 2 Guam: 1 Japan: 1 Puerto Rico: 1 Total: 159 DATA ACCESS NEXRAD radars continuously scan a 3D picture of the skies using one of several predetermined volume coverage patterns (VCP). Weather Lab provides you access to all scans in the volume, giving you the full spatial picture from which to visualize the structure of a storm. PLAYBACK Time: The last hour Frames: 10-12 Controls: Play/Pause, Step Forward, Step Backward, Scrub Playback Speed: 5000x - 250x real-time SETTINGS Radar - Project to Ground: ON, OFF Radar - Smoothing: None, Linear Radar - Vertical Scale: 20x-1x Units - Altitude: ft, m Units - Velocity: mph, kts, m/s Units - Time: 12hr, 24hr, UTC Map Styles - Natural, Light, Dark Weather Lab PRO subscription payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase.

Storm Tracker

This is exactly what I need for tornado tracking in Oklahoma THX
By Suz1953

Very good!

Really love this app. I can’t wait to see what new stuff you have planned for it (cities and roads). Great price too! It’s worth the $9.99 a year.

GRAnalyst (lite) for a fraction of the cost

I LOVE THIS APP!! I am a closet weather geek who has way to many weather apps. I don’t know why it took me so long to find this. This app lets you peer into storms and see what’s going on in 3D. You can rotate the view, take slices either horizontally or vertical (pro subscription), or look at many other features of weather based on NWS NEXRAD radar stations. The only downside is that you don’t get a national overview of radar so you can choose which area to delve into. If you are a weather nerd, it’s hard to be disappointed in this app.

Great App!

Love this app! Would love to see weather warnings implemented in the future. Better way to know what areas to zoom in. ;)

Nothing special here

What’s the deal waste of money.. don’t buy it..can’t get velocity to work and there is no way to send these images vie text or email..

What a GREAT app. Well worth the money. Really seems very fast.
By Wxman

Great app

It’s a great app you could add lighting storm tracks so we know when the storms gets to a certain area but it’s a great app it’s coming along keep up the good work great job

Amazing App!

I’m not a weather professional, just a curious person who wants to know more about the world around me. I have to say that this app is amazing! The 3D radar is beautiful and very captivating to explore. I’m surprised that anyone would give a negative review considering that this app does what NO other app is capable of. Sounds like some user error, since 3D is clearly available on the basic package- you just have to click the cube icon.

Nice 👍 app

Did have a glitch but other then that it’s a great app the features are fantastic! One thing should be added severe weather warnings.
By Jomikcro

Wonderful app but

Takes YEARS to load most radar images. I am in good WiFi and am using an IPhone XR so these are in app loading issues. Otherwise amazing images and fantastic quality.
