Good... But

I use this app every day. It's easy and the rain radar is my favourite part.
Problem is the 48hr rain forecast mm... currently it's pouring outside, the rain we have at the moment is widespread and due to be here for most of the day, yet nothing showing on the forecast for my nearest town today.
It would be great if they added my town information. It's available because a different local weather app has it. Why don't I use that one? Because this app is more straightforward 😊

Almost perfect

The next 48 hours view is the main problem with this app and needs improving to be more usable. The problem is its difficult to tell the time of day you are viewing and even what day you are looking at as night and day is not easily distinguished and the date is not shown on the x axis. If this view was better ie more like the equivalent view in the WU app then it would be 5 stars from me.

what about showing what happened as well?

This is a nice app for seeing the forecast for today and the next few days, but the predications would be a lot more meaningful if you could compare them to yesterdays data. So if it tells me that its going to be 23 degrees I would like to know if thats much colder/warmer than yesterday. How about including the previous day summary on a swipe left?
