New Yr on iPhone and iPad is different from anything else you’ve seen in weather forecasting: Scroll through a beautiful and animated sky to see how the weather changes hourly, and get all the need-to-know details at the same time. And if there will be rainfall within the next 90 minutes we'll let you know through our now-cast.
The weather visualization makes it a fun experience to check the weather – even when it’s raining!
Check details day by day and hour by hour in the long-term forecast, or study the details in the graph.
Under "Around you" you get an overview of air pollution, pollen spread and UV forecast, as well as the latest weather observations in your area.
Forecasts are delivered by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.

Ratings and Reviews
Watch widget seems to have location issues
Fine app, tends to underpromise rather than overpromise. Only issue, which has happened for a while, if you use the watch widget as "a complication" (I believe they're called when you configure it on the watch face, it doesn't update location. I have given it access to location "Always," but right now I see the weather for Amsterdam (while in London)
I really want to like this app, especially because I like Norwegians. But there are a couple of problems. First, it is slow to start. You need to do more cacheing or prefetching or something so that it seems more responsive, even if the data are a little bit stale when the app first loads.
Second, every morning at 6:15 AM, I get a notification with the weather report for the weather for, in order: tonight, this afternoon, this evening. That is not chronological order at all, and it skips the most important thing, which is this morning. As in, “what do my kids need to wear to school today?”
Also, my wife heard me leaving this review, and wanted me to ask why you need to check location three times a day. When there’s only one notification a day.
Best weather app, but…
I really want to see the humidity please! 25C is pleasant with low humidity, but kicks my but with high humidity. I travel a lot for work so I don't know what kind of humidity to expect in any given city. Please add the humidity!
Seriously, YR is the best app and weather site I’ve seen. The graphs are amazing and the way they display the potential rainfall is super smart
