Brolly is a new app that tells you when it’s going to rain with unbelievable accuracy.

Heading out for a run or cycle? Taking the dog for a walk? About to wash the car? Don’t guess whether it’s going to rain anymore. We’ll tell you!

Brolly is all about here and now. There’s no long-term forecast, no “feels like”, no 20% chance of rain; just a crystal ball view into the the next hour or two so you can plan with confidence.


Brolly does deep analysis of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology’s forecasts and rain radars to predict when, where and how much it will rain. The predictions are constantly updated, down to the minute the shower strikes.

Our team of engineers have worked in some of the world’s largest tech companies. We’re good at what we do. Very good! :)


Brolly only works when you’re within 200 km of one of the Bureau of Meteorology’s full-time rain radars. There are more than 35 of them across Australia, including in each major city. If you’re outside radar range, Brolly can’t make accurate predictions.

Amazing app

Amazing app that works. Because I work outdoors anything like this app is good when it works and, ahem, disappointing when it doesn’t. This app doesn’t disappoint. Amazingly it hasn’t been updated for 2 years [edit in 2021: now 5] but as long as it still works they’ll get my subscription. Edit in 2021: just renewed subscription again. The app still works and the two times this year the app has been “off the air” when I tried to use it they responded quickly.. so it is still supported.

GREAT APP (when it works)

This IS a fantastic app BUT I’ve downloaded it several times and each time it stops working after a few months... it seems to ‘freeze’ on a past date and not have up-to-date info for the current time. Deleting and reinstalling the app doesn’t always get rid of this ‘freeze’... So I’d love to 100% recommend it but it’s not working for me atm!
