Authoritative, detailed weather info that goes beyond most other weather apps. In-depth weather commentary. Straight from the experts at the National Weather Service.

The in-depth meteorological reasoning behind your local weather forecast, straight from the experts at NOAA/NWS.

Deep Weather automatically compiles an easy-to-read version of the most recent National Weather Service Area Forecast Discussion, advisories and warnings for your location. Just launch the app, and it takes care of everything for you.

The National Weather Service Area Forecast Discussions provide detailed information and background about the weather patterns and observations that are part of the most recent forecast model. They represent the "Story behind the weather story," a glimpse behind the scenes of your current forecast, and provide lots of detail not found anywhere else.

Included sections:
Aviation Weather
Fire Weather
Marine Weather
Beach Forecast
Watches, Warnings
Short Term Forecast
Long Term Forecast

Deep Weather also provides easy access to a curated list of the most up-to-date weather graphics: National Forecast Chart, Surface Analysis, IR Satellite, Current Radar, and more.

Use the map view to select any National Weather Service Forecast Office and receive the latest forecast discussion for that area.

The discussion is broken up into sections for you, and the text itself formatted in a much more easily read format than the raw original.

These discussions are amended and updated several times per day, so you can follow how the weather forecast is changing in real time, as well as gain a deeper understanding of the thought that goes into forming the forecast.

Love the app for AFDs, now with favorites option.

Update! Wow, that was fast! So easy now to toggle between my favorite NWS stations with the heart icon on the bottom toolbar. Thanks for the quick turnaround on that request. // My previous review: One of my go to first in the morning to read local NWS Area forecast discussion's. I have only three requests for hopefully future updates... The option to store favorite offices, push notifications when a new discussion is available for one of your favorites and maybe and option for the previous discussion from that office. Love the app. Clean and quick to load data on my iPhone and iPad.

Thanks for the feedback StormVisuals! I'm actually already working on a "favorite stations" feature, which should be rolled out soon. Thanks again!

Unparreled narrative and weather commentary

I have been looking for some time to get this sort of commentary for weather weather local or somewhere else. This compendium of analysis is almost complete, if they could attach links or their own source for jet stream forecast animated maps, radar, and assortments of maps winds, temps, and frontal position, then this would be king and I would only need one source, alas I do still have to see these others to complete my thirst; however, for narrative this is unparalleled. Cannot speak highly enough or recommend enough.

Good, but weird text parsing

Deep Weather is improving but is still lacking in polish. For example, in the list of forecast discussion sections, each list item is very tall. The preview text in them is of limited benefit, so I’d rather see just the headings and keep the list to a single page. (I love the list icons, though!)

The thing that bugs me the most, though, is how the text itself is parsed: every sentence shows up as a new paragraph. This makes it so much harder to follow and completely fragments the flow of what the forecaster was saying. Please fix it so it shows the paragraphs as written!

Overall, a good app with plenty of opportunities to become even better!

Developer Response ,

I appreciate the feedback! Check out this latest update (Version 3.3.1), where I've made some improvements to the formatting that I think you'll like. :)
