Weather Strip’s groundbreaking week-long hourly view shows you the whole forecast at a glance, so you can more quickly choose the best times to go outside.

And our beautiful home screen and lock screen widgets set new records for the most detailed weather forecasts ever displayed in such a small space.

Use the interactive map to see forecasts for any location in the world — including mountains, trails, lakes, and literally anywhere you place a marker.

Extreme weather warnings are shown directly on the forecast timeline, so you can see exactly when the danger is expected — including storms, fires, hurricanes, flooding, landslides, and everything else tracked by NOAA meteorologists.

We take privacy seriously with NO ads, NO tracking, and NO third-party analytics. Weather Strip only stores location data on your local device, and it always uses approximate locations when requesting weather forecasts.

Weather Strip also respects your data plan, with optional background app refresh that automatically learns your habits, and the ability to view your recent forecasts even when your connection drops.

Weather Strip is completely free to try for two weeks. After that, a minimal subscription price helps us keep the service running. (Subscriptions automatically renew unless canceled within 24 hours before the end of the current period. You can turn off auto-renewal at any time by going to your Account Settings on the App Store after purchase.)

Not all features are available in all locations. Forecasts are issued by Foreca globally and by the U.S. National Weather Service (NOAA NWS) in the United States. Forecasts usually span 168 hours (7 days) but can occasionally be longer or shorter.

Designed by data visualization researcher Robin Stewart to help everyone enjoy the outdoors.

Great first version

Excellent visualization of upcoming weather information. Hope to someday see a radar view added, especially with wind visualization like the old Storm app from weatherunderground. WU’s current app doesn’t show cloud cover, which matters to me, but Weather Strip does so, nicely. The height of the rain graph shows percentage chance of rain, but it would be nice if light versus heavy rain was depicted by paler or more saturated blue, as well.

It looks like a nice start to an app I hope to use for a long time. It will be interesting to see how Winter is shown; can’t tell yet because only USA locations are allowed, and it’s not Winter currently. I tried selecting northern Alaska, but the app crashed, and I needed to delete it to get it to stop crashing on launch. But it’s a v1.0, and I don’t live in Alaska, so not really a big concern for me. Looking forward to seeing how this app improves. Saw the announcement for it on nine2fiveMac.

Thanks for the suggestions! The blue bars along the bottom of the timeline indicate how hard it's expected to rain. (If there are no bars, that means only light rain is expected.) In the winter, there's a corresponding visual for the probability of snow and the expected inches of snowfall.

Weather Strip also now includes multiple forecast providers to ensure there is always a valid forecast available.

Having tried all the well regarded weather apps, it took about a minute for this to become my favorite. Everything you want to know is presented in a clear, easily navigable one-screen view. A widget and radar would make it perfect.

One other disadvantage to this app that I didn’t realize at first is that it really is ONLY a forecast. There’s no real time weather info, so if you live in an area as I do where it’s not uncommon for unpredictable storms to drop the temp 10 or 15 degrees, it does get quite off in those situations. Still a great app, I just have a local stations app as backup for radar and real-time info on such days.

Good news — Weather Strip now includes widgets! It also now has an additional forecast provider (Foreca) with frequent updates and much improved short-term accuracy.

Great app, could be even better

Love that this app gives hour-by-hour data for your current location straight from NOAA in an easy-to-read graph for temp, cloud cover, chance of rain, amount of rain, and UV index. I’ve found it to be immensely helpful—this quickly became one of my most-used weather apps. My only complaint is that there doesn’t seem to be a way to search for other locations beyond finding them on the map and there doesn’t seem to be a way to store a list of locations you look at frequently for easy access. You can drop a pin on the map and save it for future use, but you still have to scroll across the map to find your pin. Hopefully those features will be added in the future!

Good news! Weather Strip can now search and list locations by name — including cities, addresses, parks, lakes, and more.
