"Tried the other night, and I could not have picked a better time to tryout. It told me it would rain in 13 minutes, so I set a timer as a joke. Alarm went off as the sound of rain reached me. Spooky.
Definitely one of those "the future is here" technology moments." - 5 stars from Davexl23
Need to know when it is going to rain? Want a lovely animation of the nearest rain radar? Then do we have the app for you!
Here's a charming app that will send a lovely notification to you before it rains at your location, telling you when it is going to rain down to the minute. You'll never be caught out in the rain again!
Our PollyCloud Weather Engine uses advanced computing modelling to give you highly specific alerts about incoming rain on a minute by minute basis, even while you travel.
Playing or watching sport, doing the washing, hosting a party, building or doing repairs - or even just commuting to work or school - then don't let the weather spoil the party by getting caught out in the rain. Whether you're an outdoorsy person or not, you'll love it.
The is one of the most useful apps made for Australians, with help from those government weather folks and their high tech doppler radar.
But that's not all, we've been working hard to add loads of other features:
- Daily rain notifications
- Local weather, including current wind, rain probability and hourly weather conditions
- Radar view, with custom animations
- Minute by minute rain view
- And more!

Willyweather is great if you need a free accurate weather app but it's rainfall chart is based off the closest weather station. If you need proper accurate rain prediction then Rain Parrot is miles ahead and a must have.
It never gets the general prediction wrong and very rarely predicts the specific times and levels without perfection. It might get the predictions off by a minute or two but 95% of the time the notifications and chart are spot on, even when it's 30-45mins before.
I may be missing something and I know it would me difficult to have the same accuracy but it would be awesome to have a chart that updates with the same regularity and predicts the rest of the day/next 12-24 hours, like Willyweather does. Instead of having the mm and % graphed on the chart though, I would prefer to just see some form of % plus heaviness like the rain chart in this app.
👍 clever take on a weather app
This app has some very nice features, and is reasonably accurate. Sometimes notifications arrive when the rain has begun. Other than that the rain graph is fantastic. I didn’t immediately catch on to it but it is great for gauging when rain will stop. It’s easier to read than a radar view but just not as cool looking. All it needs are the bright magenta and blue colour scheme!
My only gripe is some of the layout/design choices. Some things are in bold which don’t need it. Times repeat themselves on the weather slider without an indication of if it being the hour on today, tomorrow or the day after. I’m not sure what ‘1 of 15’ means in the storm details especially when it’s rained quite a bit for the day.. I would expect like ‘rain event 4 of 15’? Anyway, there’s nothing here a good graphic/interaction designer couldn’t fix to make this app fantastic!
Used Rain Parrot since v1. Love it, I’ve come to completely rely on it. As someone who spends lots of time outside walking, camping, cycling, kayaking, surfing etc getting a forecast before venturing outside is important, but more critical is the heads up that RP gives as weather approaches. Just as critical is the estimated time & intensity of the rain. I’ve come to use this app to help make decisions to keep going, turn around or seek shelter; many many times and with out hesitation I’d say this is a must have app. Note I do say ‘help’, please don’t rely on technology to make your decisions, be smart use common sense and awesome tools (apps) like Rain Parrot. Does this app get it right 100% of the time, no! But it’s accuracy is mega close to 100%. The accuracy, it’s simplicity and the fact that it follows my location 5 star app without hesitation.
