Deep weather respects your privacy. No display ads or tracking. The best and most detailed Weather Forecasts and imagery from the National Weather Service.

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

Deep Weather grew out of a desire to provide easy access to some of the most high-quality and high-value, detailed weather sources that are usually overlooked by other weather apps. While many weather sources will tell you the general gist of what the weather is expected to do, Deep Weather provides the deep, detailed meteorological reasoning behind that forecast, along with the various factors that are likely to influence it, as well as potentially change where the forecast goes.

Deep Weather respects your privacy. Deep Weather doesn't track or store your location information, or any other data about you. (See privacy disclosure below). Deep Weather also doesn't display ads, but rather relies on optional Pro subscriptions from our loyal users to pay the bills.

Weather details not commonly found in other apps in a convenient, easy-to-read package. Provides a deeper understanding of your weather forecast.

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.

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 weather forecast detail not found anywhere else.

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

To help provide a more visual picture, 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, Pacific and Atlantic Ocean surface analysis, 500mb graphical forecasts and more.

In addition, Deep Weather provides localized 7-day extended forecasts from the National Weather Service for any location in the United States and its territories.

Deep Weather provides great value in helping you anticipate and adjust to changes in the weather that you might not have been aware of if limited to other weather sources. By understanding the factors and assumptions that are part of the official forecast and how changes in those factors could affect the outcome, you are armed with a much deeper and more flexible understanding of the weather around you. This is highly valuable in aviation, sailing, long distance hiking and any other outdoor endeavor where changes in the weather can have great impact.

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 and weather graphics 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.

Best I’ve Found

I never watch or listen to the tv or radio “meteorologists”. All they seem to be capable of doing is talking about the computer models. They are like robots with no thinking skills of their own. It seemed that the days were gone of a meteorologist looking at pressure patterns, etc., and being able to come up with a 48 hour forecast from their own ability.

Then I found this app! Yes, the models are mentioned, but the discussions goes beyond that and sometimes have a different prediction than the models. I love the the discussion of what front or dry line is sitting in a region and how that could shape the weather. I like a true meteorological discussion, not just, “There’s a chance of rain tomorrow “. Oh, and they put their name on their forecast and discussion. I suspect someone unable to critically think about meteorology would last too long here, unlike the tv folks that are more for entertainment than brains and accuracy.

The app is free, but I paid for it, and will continue my yearly subscription as long as it remains “old school meteorology”. It’s actually the only app I’ve ever thought worthy of paying for! I’ll continue my yearly subscriptions as long as it keeps doing the same. I think the yearly and lifetime subscription fees are very reasonable for the product.

I use this app for daily/weekly planning, but also for the aviation features. (It was the aviation feature that led me to discover the app.)

StormVisuals ,

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.

Developer Response ,

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

Technical Weather Forecast without the jargon

I am a weather geek with a physics degree. I understand the weaknesses and failure of weather apps that boil weather forecasts into a single digit or a range of probabilities. The Deep Weather app is unique. It boils all the technical information into a simple, easy to understand narrative that is spot on. In the past as we’ve travelled during the winter in the American West I’ve used the NWS twitter posts to understand the trends in upcoming weather. From now on I will check Deep Weather first before tackling the technical forecasts.
