New version is so sad 1/5
By Carolina Meerkat
Well, this used to be my favorite app and it still works ok on my iphone. However, the new version will not rotate for iPad users like the old one did. For those of us who use an iPad with keyboard, like a laptop, it's really a pain in the cumulus. Hopefully rotation can be added back in before hurricane season. And yeah, that's kind of a pun.
My Go to local weather app! 5/5
Great app for local weather. I like the hourly forecast.
My review on this app 4/5
I like how this app gives you weather alerts for locations that I choose however I wish this app would allow you to see weather alerts from all around North Carolina and parts of southern Virginia it really is helpful when I have that option
Complete weather 5/5
Love this app as it gives you everything including the Dewpoint
Location services 4/5
By The Hawaiian Avenger
Why does location services have to be always on to use the alert feature? The app lets you set alerts for specific cities so it shouldn’t need to know where I am to give an alert for that city.
I love the app though
WRAL Weather 5/5
I like the new WRAL app better than the old one!
What happened to the landscape orientation? 2/5
The app only displays in portrait on my iPad. This is annoying.
My Weather 5/5
This new weather app is wonderful!!!! Easy to read and lets you know before a storm hits or is on the way. I love it !!!!!!!

The Best Weather App For North Carolina
Miss the old weather app. 1/5
The old app was much faster.
The weather radar screen was larger and much much faster to load.
I wish I had the old app back.
I am going to have to find a different weather app.
great app 5/5
Remarkable improvement 5/5
This app is 10 times better than before.
If it actually worked it would be nice 1/5
Doesn’t work half the time.
By stormy mccloud
I like the old one better.
I can't use this one unless I am on a network. There we times I am not on a network and have Freud to check this app. I get an error message. I have not been in a severe weather situation yet off network but I am thinking if I am I'll have to go old school and look out the window for my weather update.
Update. I cancelled it.
It's useless if I can't access it while out in areas where I would need the ether conditions. I can't access it on a lake in a boat. I can't access it trail riding a horse. It's really useless camping. So no thanks. I'll stick with weather channel
Sorry Greg Fishel you have been fabulous to listen to on the old app but this new one won't let me unless I stay home.
By Wine Dinasor
The older version worked better. I control not working all the time. Very jumpy, does not locate you in the correct position all the time.
Awesome App 5/5
I love opening this app and seeing how PHYSICALLY my day will be!!! It looks as if someone really took time to say “this is what it’s going to look like today!!! Thanks
Great for weather alerts. 5/5
By Way to go iPhone
The app is great for weather alerts and to get quick weather info. Can’t be beat for the alerts!
WRAL Weather app 5/5
By 3x Granny
Great app. All the information is easy to find and very accurate.
Missing a few things 3/5
Would like the 7 day view that is shown on every TV forecast so you can see the whole week on one screen without scrolling. Found lake levels under “Around the State” but only lake Gaston works, others are N/A. iControl is much slower since the app was revamped and there is no refresh. It’s so slow that about 25% of the time it doesn’t even work Tested on a new iPhone 7 and a 5.
Got 9 Flash Flood Warnings on 5/21. 4 were between 4:25 and 4:55. Hopefully that’s a bug (only need 1). Had to turn feature off but used it in the old app. Btw: with 9 warnings the rain missed us anyway in west Cary, had about 1/4”.
Dropping another star unless it improves.
works fine 4/5
Works as well as the old version. However, this version does not rotate with the orientation of the tablet - very annoying. Gotta take one star off for that.
Very disappointed 1/5
By S and j mom
I’m very disappointed with this app. Current conditions don’t load. The radar rarely comes up. And it is very inaccurate. Missing the old app.
Great weather app 4/5
I like this app as it’s a through source for weather forecasting.
Ok, but not exceptional. 3/5
Content is good but exceptionally slow & seems to be limited by station server or possibly carrier. Sometimes video is not latest as well as being slow.
Horrible update 1/5
By EMS- ERIC
WRAL say this is a much better app than their last weather app, blah, blah, blah. Well perhaps it is, however for me it crashes seconds after it opens. So far this new update is a complete bust. Give me the old app back, at least I could open it and navigate through it. This crash on startup has been happening since the app arrived sometime around April 2018. I've just deleted it for the last time. No longer going to continue to try with this. It's just a waste of time.
Dislike the new update 2/5
The icontrol radar doesn’t update unless you close the app completely out
Please bring back landscape view! 3/5
Decent app, but portrait mode only makes it incredibly annoying.
Very sluggish load 1/5
Which is not a good thing for a weather app. Takes a minute or two just to load its home screen. Other apps load more quickly, so I don't think it's my data connection.
Weather App 5/5
I love the new App! Thanks 👏
The old App was much better! 3/5
Too confusing and not easy to use. The old App was 10 X better!
Use it most everyday 5/5
Thanks WRAL an essential app for trusted weather and radar.
Like future radar
Pogie. Obx 5/5
By obx pogie
Weather that is spot on .. thanks WRAL
Severe Weather Cut-ins? 4/5
Would it be possible to add a push notification and a link to the live severe weather cut ins that air on OTA tv? This would be something that would allow me to rate 5 stars. I love WRAL but am unable to receive the signal with the antenna from where I live. This would drastically improve this app and I would really appreciate it if it’s even considered. Thanks!
Much improved app! 4/5
Love the updates!
Wild Bill 4/5
Love it especially that music before it rains
Not So Weatherful 2/5
This app used to be one of my favorites and I loved the easy use and great information at a touch not only for my areas but those of my friends and family. Unfortunately the upgrade got rid of both of those abilities and we are left with some nice colors that don’t do much.
New changes made this my new favorite 5/5
The app has always been useful, but I have preferred using others. The latest changes are much nicer to look at, provide all the current info as well as the hour-by-hour (love the new scrolling graph) at a glance and the content loads faster. This was my new favorite as soon as I opened it.
By Must c
The new app is very easy to navigate and informative. So far....so good! Keep up the good work!
They Have Too High an Opinion of Themselves 2/5
The title says it all. It comes across in the splash screen as the app opens, and never lets up.
Got it right! 5/5
Good job on the new app! Keeping this one on the front page.
Still getting used it 4/5
I like the redesign, but miss a few of the features from the last version.
Never able to see the Radar 2/5
By Timehop Fail
Now that the app has been updated the Radar never pulls up on my phone. In face I can’t open any of the maps for real time information. Very disappointing. I have used WRAL for years, even before the app. But now I’m having to go elsewhere for up to date weather.
Love it 5/5
Not an improvement 1/5
Main landing screen is busy and confusing. Connectivity issues when other apps are working fine.
New App Still Buggy 3/5
Its getting better but still run into bugs when launching and using.
Miss the old app 1/5
By SGT KimK
Hate this new format. Liked the old version much better. It’s hard to navigate and the screen doesn’t flip.
One of the best! 5/5
Even if you don’t live in the Raleigh area (I don’t) this app will keep you informed and has an excellent radar!
Love it! My go to. 5/5
By R's Nana
Could you add UV? 4/5
I only just downloaded this app. Although I missed all the drama with recent updates or lack thereof I’m still hoping you’ll add UV index to the site. It is an important part of my daily routine and can help others identify times where sunscreen is necessary or not. Thanks for your consideration.
Not user friendly 2/5
