Weather reports are available for nearly anywhere in the world. If in doubt, go to http://darksky.net and try your location to see if you like the report.
Radar is currently North America only.
The hour forecast is currently limited to US, UK, Ireland.
When you're getting dressed, what do you want to know?
"How does today compare with yesterday?"
Weather Nerd includes a nice daily comparison:
"Today is 9° cooler than yesterday. No rain."
This makes it easy to grab the right coat.
Weather Nerd also gives you minute-by-minute rain predictions for your exact GPS location. Powered by Dark Sky's cutting edge "hyperlocal precipitation forecasting system", these reports show you a nice graph of the rain intensity for the next hour based on your exact location. For example, you might see:
"Light rain starting in 10 minutes, stopping 15 minutes later."
The daily forecast screen shows you a graph of the temperature, rain, and wind for today. Touch anywhere on the graph to view the forecast for a specific time. See more details at the bottom of the screen.
The weekly forecast shows you a quick graph of the projected highs and lows for the next week, along with the chance of rain. Touch any day to view the full forecast for that day.
BEYOND 7 DAYS
Need to see the forecast for two weeks or two months out? No problem. Weather Nerd's calendar lets you view the forecast for any date within the next year.
For the real weather nerds, the "Nerd Out" feature will list out ALL of the weather information.
Weather Nerd lets you setup a daily weather forecast alert (in 15 minute intervals). You can turn the alert on/off for certain days of the week.
If you set your alert to 6pm or later, then the forecast will be for "tomorrow's" weather.
Some of you nerds like to use iPhone and iPad widgets. No problem. Weather Nerd comes packaged with 3 different widgets for your viewing pleasure including graphs for the "Next Hour", "Today", and "Week".
Why a subscription? The average nerd checks weather 4-5 times a day. Over a year, that alone cost nearly 1 USD to our providers. That's not counting additional data used for radar tiles, alerts, widgets, multiple devices, servers, etc. It would be completely unsustainable to charge a one time fee for a lifetime of data.
Weather Nerd uses auto-renewing subscriptions. The Nerd Club subscription provides full access to weather reports, radar, widgets, and notifications. The subscription will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase within the app. Subscriptions will automatically renew at the end of your subscription period and will be charged through your iTunes account. Subscriptions renew automatically unless canceled at least 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. You can turn off auto-renewal at any time from your iTunes account settings. Cancellation of the current active subscription period is not allowed.
Added support for dark mode, fixed secret Nerd Ball game.
Ratings and Reviews
Finally an update!! Yes!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for not abandoning this amazing app!!! This was, is now again and probably will always be my favorite weather app! You can see so much at one time in a simple graph format. Your brain processes images much faster than words and this weather graph really gives you all you need to know in a quick moment! I like the layout of the different tabs. I really love the yesterday’s weather function to compare yesterday to today! I also love the weekly graphs to quickly see the upcoming week ahead. I love the ability to quickly access different locations as well. The amount of customization is beyond amazing! Everyone can customize it to how they like it. Whenever my friends see me use this weather app, they always ask what it is. I tell them the name and recommend it to them. And now since I know it’s being updated again, I will continue recommending it to my friends and family. I plan to get an iPhone X soon and can’t wait to see this amazing app on there! Once again, thank you so much for not abandoning an awesome app! I’m looking forward to many future updates with more great features! #WeatherNerd
Developer Response ,
Awesome - thanks so much for this review!
Good weather app, but...
I’ve been using WN on my iPhone for years, and like it a lot. Well worth the modest annual subscription fee. However, I have a few peeves about it:
1. Although a number of reviewers mention WN as a top weather app for Apple Watch, I can’t seem to find a way to load it on my watch (Series 4, with latest watch OS). Which brings me to my second gripe:
2. I can’t seem to find any user guide available, and the FAQs are very limited. Nor is there a way to contact the developer for help, as far as I can see.
3. This is one I’ve been wondering about for as long as I’ve been using this app: the probability of rain listed at the top of a daily forecast doesn’t generally match the graph of rain probabilities throughout the day. Does the overall number mean probability that it will rain at SOME point during the day, and the graph indicate the probability at a given time? Or am I misinterpreting this?
Anyway, even with these shortcomings, I still give it a solid 4 stars as an iPhone app.
Where’s the Radar Feature?
For the second time in less than 3 months, your radar feature has disappeared.
We can be having the most intense storm and when looking at your radar feature, there isn’t a hint of a storm, not in my area, not in the entire world! I have to switch to another weather app to see the storm activity in my area, or to see what systems are close.
You seem to forget, your app isn’t free, and you also don’t seem to find it necessary or important to keep your paying customers informed of any app glitches or inconsistencies. My renewal is coming up in a few months and I’m pretty sure I don’t need to spell it out for you what my decision will be
Your chances of keeping me as a customer diminish exponentially with each day that passes, that your app presents less than perfect performance. Why would I renew and pay with you for inferior performance when I can have apps like Accu Weather, that are free and are consistently dependable and accurate? Would you pay for a service that gives you less than the promised 100%?
Not at all. Yet you continually charge me full price, without so much as a refund or credit when there is a problem, you really can’t expect me to stay. Losing me as a longtime, loyal, paying customer won’t be my choice but it will be yours, by your own failings.
