Up to the minute info on local news

This has been a great app to stay in the know about what's happening in the area. Notifications come in but are not annoying. A good quick glance at the news!

The interactive radar interface is great!

99% of my usage is the look at the radar and weather forecast, and it's nice to be able to zoom in where I need it.
