View weather radar animations and prognostic charts for Canada. Doppler radar images are provided by Environment Canada and prognostic charts are provided by NAV CANADA.
Canada Weather is location-aware and can automatically find the closest radar station. You can also select from a list of 31 stations nationwide, including five regional views: Pacific, Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic.
New in version 2.0 are the Surface Analysis and Graphical Area Forecast (GFA) charts. The Surface Analysis is a snapshot of the current pressure and frontal systems across Canada. GFAs give you a 12-hour forecast of the expected pressure and frontal systems at a regional level, along with information such as expected precipitation, cloud height & coverage, turbulence, icing, and freezing level. While these charts are typically used by pilots, they offer an excellent look at the current weather systems in a given region.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
When it’s working, the app does a great job in showing where the weather is coming from or going to. A big help. I consult it often when bad weather is in the area and across Canada while traveling.
As with all computer systems it occasionally does fail. It is usually back up and running shortly, but?
Fastest loading yet bravo.
Waste of money
The radar is fine. But it’s an exact copy of Environment Canada’s website. Nothing new or innovative at all. Don’t buy. Save your money and use the free Environment Canada app.
