Been using this app for 4 yrs...!
Lots of accurate timely information 5/5
This site is incredibly detailed but sometimes a little hard to find exactly what your looking for. You have to know the correct terms.
Great app 5/5
Grab this app to stay informed.
Good App 5/5
Easy to use app very informative and give you lots information easy access to it
NOAAs detailed forecast quick and easy 4/5
Except for the banner ad at the bottom this app is great. All the details I wanted day-to-day.
Dark Sky 1/5
Uses Dark Sky data. No thanks. This data is inaccurate and ruins the app.
Good, could be better. 3/5
Ever since the update to iOS 11 I haven’t been able to see the icons for the conditions when I look at the forecast for any location. I updated the app and the bug is still there.
The origin of weather data 4/5
NOAA remains the first and best source for all things weather forecasting in the U.S. It is the place other applications (including weather.com, weather underground etc.) look to to obtain much of their local forecasting data.
The only downside might be that until you are familiar with do you have, it isn't always apparent where to find things (e.g., forecast information = faint, tiny icon at the bottom of the screen). I also wish they would also add the timeline grid available on the main site (showing precip amounts etc.) Still, the accuracy is head and shoulders above the rest, and for that reason it will continue to be my go-to weather forecast source, and the one I recommend to others.
A Must 5/5
During Hurricane Harvey this application kept me informed and up to date on storm tracking and Alerts. A valuable must have for those of us who live in Southeast Texas.
With the information from this app, we were able to make informed rational decisions. Thank you for making this app available for free.
Love this APP!!!! 5/5
I love this NOAA WeatherApp. I can check weather anywhere at anytime. Best current & most accurate forecasts!
Always put to date and in point. Check before I go fishing every time.
NWS/NOAA point forecasts for the mountains! 5/5
At last an app that easily provides the elevation-adjusted specific forecasts for mountains that you can find in the National Weather Service website. Clean and readable interface.
Not as good as android version 2/5
By Dubja Jay
Every time I open the app it is zoomed out to the national view and "none" is selected instead of "radar" which is the map view I last used. So I have to go to favorites and choose a location and then select "radar" every time I use the app. My android version isn't like that. I love that one and bought it. I don't think I'll buy this one til it improves
NOAA weather app 4/5
By nils bikes to breweries
Easy to use and more trustworthy than the other weather apps, because I believe it updates more frequently. However, just like the other weather apps, it is still frustratingly slow when it comes to downloading the radar weather map.
Worthless. Tornado alerts on the news.. NOTHING from the app.
Love this app 5/5
Love being able to read the discussion and forecast more up to date multiple time a day!
The Real Deal 4/5
This app is for normal people like me. We think in words. --Not pictures. People who think in pictures are crazy.. like Vincent van Gogh. They wind up cutting their ear off. The app skillfully brings the words of the NWS text to a useful & functional interface. Radar, Schmadar. If we didnt all grow up watching TV with scantily clad weather girls standing in front of radar maps, nobody would want radar apps. This app has radar; I've never looked at it, because the forecast from NOAA is in words. Please dont screw this app up with bells & whistles & pretty pictures. You'll get 5 stars when I can set font size independently of my overall iPhone font setting.
Widget cluttered 3/5
I thought I noticed some different icons on the widget but then they changed back to the photos and would would prefer symbols as the photos are a little hard to read at a quick glance. Is there a way I can change to those weather symbols instead of the photos?
Great app, love how accessible it is with voiceover 4/5
I love how accessible this app is. Keep up the good work. There is one small issue. I don't get notifications unless the app is running in the background. When hazardous weather or anything like that comes up, I have to run the app in order to get the notification. Is there a way you can possibly fix that?

Quick and easy!
The best weather app 5/5
NOAA is the most accurate weather app. The most reliable I've found
Weather from the NWS! 5/5
This app gets its information from the NWS's National forecast database. Put any point in the US and get the forecast. It also does Environment Canada's forecast too! It has been stable on both my iOS and Android devices.
Great for truck drivers!! 5/5
By Lad O Lay
Helps to anticipate all weather conditions along my route. I use it before every trip.
Government at its best! 5/5
By weather eye CT
Smart weather info. How lucky we are and hope you can keep up the highest quality weather info. It's important for fun and for safety.
Love it! 5/5
Has all the weather info I need. Thanks for making the font bigger!
Love the convenience of this app for official NOAA weather reports! 5/5
By Bell lady 14
I'm a weather junkie and really appreciate how easy it is to check out my forecast with this app. The NOAA weather forecasts are much more accurate, than forecasts you get from The Weather Channel or some of the other local TV stations.
Great app, except that it forgets that I have already purchased the no ads option 4/5
I have heard from the developer, they are working to resolve the issue.
use this app regularly, however every few days it shows ads and I have to choose the restore purchase option to get them hidden. If that problem were fixed, this app would have five stars.
Accurate weather forecast 5/5
Great app! It pinpoints your location or any location you plan to visit, giving you even the altitude. I use it here at home but also when I travel. I do a lot of backpacking and reliable weather forecast ensures I am well equipped for cold, rain and snow and this app does the job! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Works great 5/5
By Vestal mp
This is a great app with the most accurate weather information. It even works abroad. You cannot do better.
Easy Access to NWS Data 5/5
Thanks to the developer for responding to my previous issue.
The Best 5/5
No extra fluff - just the facts: Accurate data from NOAA. Easy to use. Solid. My go-to weather app.
In app purchase disables rotate 1/5
The free version was great but after purchase of the in-app ad removal, when I rotate the phone the screen turns solid blue and can't recover!! Feel ripped off 😡
Great app for boating conditions 4/5
I use this app before heading out to sea. It's the best one I have found so far for boating conditions.
Simple / Unique 5/5
Simple and Unique. Easy to use. Accurate from the nation's source. What is unique is the "WINDS" layer. With the click of the mouse or a pinch and a squeeze, you can see the wind direction as a field of arrows over the entire Globe or just your neighborhood.
By Blue wolf 47
Super app very accurate very,very accurate on hour by hour forecast love this app I have tried a lot of weather apps but this is the most reliable and accurate one out there the best I have found
Beats Weather.com 4/5
I like this App much better than other options...unless you enjoy the doomsday headlines of Weather.com...
Number #1 5/5
Seems pretty good 4/5
By Copier guy 123
Very comprehensive. Only problem is that the source of the information may come from a place not too near where you are. This afternoon I compared the temperature with Apple and Dark Sky. NOAA displayed a the temperature furthest from that on my trusted backyard mercury thermometer
Most Accurate Weather App 5/5
This is by far my favorite weather app. I have used Accuweather,Weather.com, and Weather Underground and NOAA is by far the most accurate. I just wish that you were able to customize your weather alert tones and have them repeat if it is an emergency alert. I hope this review is helpful to someone.
Could be great 2/5
The app does provide the detailed forecast from the NWS. & that's about the good thing.
You can set up weather alerts & there's an option for sound, but according to the developer you will only get these if you leave the app open. Really? I had several winter weather advisories for my area & did not receive a single notification of any of them.
Each time you enter the app it takes you to the map tab. Which is ok if you want that. There's no option to add a favorite tab. On this map, you have to select which overlay you want each time. It does not save the overlay you want. Causes additional taps & gets annoying. The overlays look clunky & not as accurate as the NWS radar.
Overall just a 2 star app right now. If the severe weather notifications were to actually work w/ sound, better map, ability to save a favorite tab & settings on the radar, could be the perfect app. Hopefully some things will be fixed/added
Simple to use and navigate are in.
Five star weather 5/5
By Donnie do
The best I have found. At least it's not affiliated with the weather Chanel. The weather Chanel is nothing more than a TV show. It's a joke. Thank you NOAA for a supersonic weather report..!
Excellent App 5/5
This is an excellent app. It presents weather information in a meaningful and user friendly format. I am happy with this purchase.
By Bob terri
Don't bother with these idiots. They are wrong 90 percent of the time
The only way to go for accurate weather information 5/5
We live in a remote area without cell service or internet. NOAA Weather still comes through loud and clear. We rely on it daily for detailed, accurate weather information. Broader apps don't work, but NOAA Weather can target your specific location, which makes all the difference to us. It works anywhere in the world. We wouldn't trust anything else up here in the frozen north!
By Draper resident
Gives me a good weather report for my area and areas I need to go. Better than other weather apps I've tried
Thank you!!! 5/5
Finally a free app
I paid for the other noaa app ($4.99) and it didn't do or tell me half the weather info that this one does!
Love this app 5/5
I have always been a fan and consumer of the web site. To now have mobile access is great. Super easy to customize. I am a user for life. Thank you NOAA.
Pretty nice app! 4/5
By UltraJoosh iOS
Nice to see an app with NOAA data.
NOAA weather 5/5
I really enjoy the ability to look at the weather in areas without a zip code.
