The deep, detailed meteorological reasoning behind your local weather forecast, straight from the experts at NOAA/NWS. Deep Weather automatically compiles an easy-to-read version of the most recent National Weather Service Forecast Discussion, advisories and warnings for your location. Just launch the app, and it takes care of everything for you. The National Weather Service Forecast Discussions provide detailed information and background about the weather patterns and observations that are part of the most recent forecast model. They represent the "Story behind the weather story," a glimpse behind the scenes of your current forecast, and provide lots of detail not found anywhere else. Use the map view to select any National Weather Service Forecast Office and receive the latest forecast discussion for that area. The discussion is broken up into sections for you, and the text itself formatted in a much more easily read format than the raw original. These discussions are amended and updated several times per day, so you can follow how the weather forecast is changing in real time, as well as gain a deeper understanding of the thought that goes into forming the forecast.
The NWS Forecast Discussion is a great way to understand what is likely to happen and get a sense of the unknowns that may impact current forecasts. Really good for looking out a week or a bit more. Needs better controls to allow you to select your initial view like the whole discussion on the first screen.
Fantastic and minimalist text weather app that does everything it needs to and nothing it doesn't. Thanks to the developer for fixing voiceover accessibility in the latest update. Text descriptions on the buttons are greatly appreciated by those of us who use the voiceover screen reader..
Cerebral not just a bunch of charts
This app would be great if it would give a report for the correct location. I have it set to use my gps but it nevertheless keeps reporting for a location that is about 150 miles away and a totally different climate.
I like it
I have always enjoyed reading the National Weather Service summary notes about how they come to certain conclusions and where they think the weather is going. This app presents that sort of information in a very straightforward manner. Additionally, as a person who happens to be blind, I sincerely appreciate the developers inclusion of full accessibility via voiceover in this app.
I’m on the road now but with a little flying experience in the past to understand some of the terminology, I find this app to be very informative and very up to date.
I gave it three stars because it insisted I review it.
I use this app all the time. It helps me understand the weather, so I can assess the certainty of forecasts from the National Weather Service and other sources. The only flaw that prevents me from giving it that last star is that I cannot sort the order of the favorite stations list.
Gives instant access to the forecast discussion from every office across the country. Perfect for those who travel to different cities as well as just weather nerds at home (I use it for both). Not complicated and it doesn’t need to be. Forecast discussions are, IMO, vastly more important than the forecast itself, as you get a window into why it is what it is and how it could, and many times does, change. Again, it’s beauty is in its simplicity. I use it multiple times daily.
