One of life’s essentials really ...

I do very much prefer the WeatherZone app over default Apple Weather app because WeatherZones data is far more accurate and detailed, not to mention the interface is logical and easy to navigate without being cluttered with too much detail in one place which should keep everyone happy. Those who just want something to give them a current temperature or forecast wont be bogged down with all those other data points they mightn’t understand.

Thanks for the very useful app WeatherZone 👍🏼 ... and thank you for the pre-efilled review. I usually only use this when I want to clear the annoying notification about posting a review that pops up on iPhone when you’re using an app just acquired. For apps I think are very handy to own, then I make the effort to write my own 😁 cheers guys

Good enough but warning system not updating

I like this app but having trouble with the warnings. It’s only set for my area so I’m only getting warnings for here which is great as I need to keep an eye on the creek level with the flooding happening in FNQ atm as we have a major creek running down the back of our house. I get the notification for the warning, click on it and it opens into the app, I click on the exclamation mark then it goes into the warnings list. This is where I’m having issues, before I expand the warning it has the right time the current warning was issued, but as soon as I expand the warning, it’s still actually the old warning with the old time & warning number (from the previous warning issued by BOM) so I have to go to my Willy Weather app and read the new warning. I’ve tried refreshing & closing app on and off but still hasn’t updated to the correct warning time & number that was currently issued. Also what’s with all the different colour crosses for the lightning strikes? Is there a key somewhere to know what’s white, blue etc? I’m guessing it’s the time/how long ago they occurred but I can’t find anywhere to tell me.

To optimistic for rain forecast

The weather zone app is the best out there, however being a farmer we rely on forecast accuracy this is where things come undone. We have waisted thousands of dollars on fertiliser pending rain that that had been forecasted over the years from weather zone that rarely comes. I understand a 90 percent chance isn’t 100 percent but week after week it gets promised and constantly on day 6 and 7 to find it ends up being no chance of rain, obviously to forecast 7 days out is inaccurate but 90 percent time after time should produce something. I’ve even seen it many times go from imminent rain to no chance of rain on the current day. I now look at several forecasts and find even BOM to be more realistic if not a little pessimistic. I hope you can adopt a new principal because the app is great.
The new radar display is very glitchy but the idea is good it seems to start and stop and often closes down. Hope this helps.
