Great

Don’t know why the reviews are so bad. This forecast is often more accurate than my local news. Yes there are ads sometimes but they are nothing compared to the 10 minute commercial reel Id have to watch on cable. This app never gives me a problem. I also love that you can see where and when earthquakes happen around the world as well as their intensity. The hourly forecast is very useful and most often I’m the only one I know who is prepared for the weather.

Reliable forecast, too many ads

The Good: I’ve always preferred WDBJ7’s weather and news coverage over other local stations. The forecasts are reliable, and it’s much easier to watch the 20 second morning forecast video on the app than turn on the tv and wait for the weather to come on each morning. The app itself is easy to navigate and it’s easy find the info you’re looking for.

The Bad: Do you like ads? If so, this is the perfect weather app for you! You have to sit through a 30 second ad that you can’t skip before watching each video. For some reason even with the phone set to vibrate, the sound still comes through. Want to just see the daily forecast for the week? Then you’ll get a full page ad with a tiny X at the top to close first, and then another one every few seconds while you’re scrolling through the days. Did you get a severe weather alert that you want and need to read? Well, get ready to sit through a commercial for good ol’ Rick Woodson Honda or learn about the local Goodwill Industries employees first. No disrespect to those companies, but if something is going down weather-wise, I don’t see why it’s important to first try to sell me a Honda.

Overall, the weather forecast itself is very reliable and brought to you by the people you trust. I understand the need for ads, but this app has way too many and it’s frustrating to use most times. If they ever offer a paid, ad-free version, I’d be happy to get that one.

Great Coverage

The WDBJ7 weather app is my go-to app for my weather. It is easy to get your hourly forecast. It makes planning your day easy. I especially love the interactive radar to watch and see what's coming my way.
