Weather radar in your pocket! Use RadarNow! to quickly see an animated radar image and current conditions! No digging through menus to see if a storm is on the way!

RadarNow! provides National Weather Service (NWS) Enhanced Radar "Base" (N0R) images from the NOAA WSR-88D NEXRAD Radar sites located around the US. Radar images are downloaded directly from NWS servers so are always the most current available. When you start the app, the radar images are from the site closest to your location.

NWS Alerts coming soon. Only alerts issued to the your current county will be sent and the alerts can be filtered so only the ones that interest you are used.

We value your input! It was suggestions and constructive critiques from users just like you that helped to create the new, improved RadarNow!.

RadarNow! is designed to be fast, efficient and have great free options. If you want a full featured weather app that shows things like ski conditions or tide reports, we suggest using WeatherBug or Weather Channel. RadarNow! Standard (Free) provides animated radar, local conditions and NWS Alerts centered on your current location. Radar Now! Premium provides the same but allows you to select other radar sites as well as provide more zoom levels, range rings, selectable locations and a pannable map of the continental US with a looping weather radar.

RadarNow! uses US radars only, therefore is active for entire U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and areas of Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean that border the U.S.

Battery is used ONLY when RadarNow! is active, otherwise RadarNow! has no effect on battery life. RadarNow! uses GPS and network location services to fix your location. If location services aren't available, Zip Code can be used with RadarNow! to set location.

This version of RadarNow! was created by USNaviguide in cooperation with Mighty Pocket.

Used to work well

This used to be a great and useful app.
Since their last update, it no longer shows activity quickly. I’ve started using other apps for radar viewing.

Works great

I have been loving this free app on my phone for three years or so. When I downloaded this to my iPad about a yr ago it didn't work well, but now it's excellent. Weather Channel app has not predicted several violent storms this past year, and I am done with it. I downloaded Weather Bug and its windows wouldn't open and its maps froze in mid-render. So, thanks for making Radar Now (free version) smooth, simple, accurate--and for the automatic driver mode.

Misleading info

This used to be a great app. I tried using it today and saw the velocity radar was gone. Looked in their Help section on premium features and it shows the velocity radar to be a feature for premium. I purchased the premium and still had no velocity radar. Contacted developer and was told the only thing you get for premium is “ad free”. I was told the false advertising was an “oversight”.
