RainViewer displays rain and snow precipitation in real time on the map. View how rain moves and track storm direction, as well as intensity. Doppler-radar towers, close to your location, provide down-to-the-minute weather prediction for your exact location. Set alerts for rain, storms, or snowfall approaching you.

RainViewer radar animation displays rain, snow, and mixed precipitation conditions in real time on a map. View storm pathways for your area: storm direction, radius, and intensity are highlighted in different colors for easy tracking.

Roll back time to view precipitation data for the previous 6 hours (or up to 24 hours in the Premium version). Explore rainfall and snowfall intensity, direction, and movement.

One of RainViewer’s unique advantages is that it features full coverage for 82 countries - the only app available with such extensive coverage on the market. Whether you are on a business trip, or on a holiday abroad - be prepared for rainy weather and wet conditions anywhere on the globe.

RainViewer draws data from 1074 weather radars located across 82 countries, recurrently scanning the sky to detect the position, size, and movement of raindrops. In addition, it provides a single map of all 1074 radars and the ability to view radar details by tapping on a specific one.

Notify friends, colleagues or team members about upcoming rain, snow or storm events by sharing radar animations in .gif or .mp4 format. Otherwise, simply post animations displaying storm movement on social networks (Facebook, Snapchat or Twitter) to keep your friends updated on the latest weather conditions.

RainViewer notifies you when rain or snow is on the way. With down-to-the-minute weather forecasting, the application gives you a heads-up. For example, "Rain starting in 37 minutes".

You can also set up rain alerts within a specific radius to notify you of inbound precipitation with a particular intensity.

• No ads. Enjoy an ads-free experience.

Fantastic app

I travel, and this app is great with WiFi on the plane to know when turbulence is coming

Odd that pilots don’t see this data, if I was a pilot I’d have an iPad and travel around with it, consulting apps like this just to compare with what onboard sensors were giving me

Anyway great app, thank you

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for such unusual expertise. Trying hard to make RainViewer even better. With deepest sympathy

Great, exept for 1 issue

When I open the app every time the backgroud map reloads when it shouldn't, because it's always the same and reloading uses lots of data. I am using OSM map by the way.

Developer Response ,

Hi! Accept our gratitude for being our customer and apologies for the circumstances. We do experience some irregular difficulties in collaboration with OpenStreetMaps. We are aware of this issue and it is to be resolved in future app versions. For now we kindly recommend you to use Apple maps instead. Thank you for your cooperation. Kind regards

Love everything about this app but one thing

I love this app but the one feature I feel is missing is being able to adjust the reflectivity. That’s the one feature that would help when a tornado is nearby

Developer Response ,

Hi! Thank you so much for paying attention to our app. If we understand you correctly, you're asking about reflectivity radar mode. Please kindly be informed that RainViewer works in fact on the ground of the reflectivity mode. What we don't have but are going to add soon is velocity mode. This should really helps to determine tornadoes. In case of any other issues please write us back (Send Feedback form or With deepest sympathy
