Fails to Load 2/5
It fails to load every other time.
Easy to use 5/5
I really enjoy this app. It's very easy and fast to use. The radar screen gives many options I'm gonna miss Mike Moss, though. When he's at work he would put up interesting updates. When he's not there on the weekend, you don't get much.
Choices are limited 3/5
I have tried several weather apps in fact I have 3 on my iPad and this is my go to app. I would prefer additional written forecasts, you know words not just shinny pictures. I don’t know how many weather apps I have tried, was disappointed in and ended up deleting them but it has been several.
Not consistent 3/5
I live just north of downtown Durham. When I use my current location this morning it showed the temp being 34 degrees. I switch to the Durham location, it says 46 degrees. I have pics to prove if needed.
Response Time 4/5
By Band Saw
Notifications need to alert the user faster.
The app is ok.
This app gives a more accurate localized forecast than others.
Easy to see the week’s forecast! 4/5
This is the first local weather app I’ve seen with at-a-glance hourly temps and 7-day forecasts on the same screen.
Great app! Thank you for a great station! 5/5
Excellent. Keep up the fine work!

Great app get it
Not bad 5/5

Pretty good weather app.
Timely Information 4/5
I am a weather watcher and studied meteorology in college. Weather reports are very important to me and interesting information. Really like lightning reports as that is one weather factor that I have always been cautious and a little afraid to witness. Thanks for keeping me alerted.
By Ashlynn S.
I love the app! It’s easy to use and is almost always accurate! Glad I can rely on WRAL!
Useful app but chews up battery 3/5
If the cost of getting "lightning near you" and similar notifications is going to be 10% of my battery usage, I think I will just look out the window instead. Otherwise, the app is pretty good.
Network Error Apple 3/5
I dearly miss the old 7 day layout. However, I’ve learned to deal with it. I have a “Network Error” issue every time I open the app. I hit close and continue to use it. Typically this works. But sometimes I have to force close the app and restart it. If you can fix this bug, I will edit my response to 5 stars. More of an annoyance than anything. TIA.
I love this app, I downloaded it during Hurricane season, it kept me informed of all weather related issues. Definitely recommend this app
I’m a Fan! But, UGH! The ADs! 3/5
Still my go-to, but was compelled to review to let you know that, with the old app, I rated a 10. The new app gets a THREE...not for design or usefulness, but because there are TOO, TOO MANY ADs! It’s so frustrating that I’ve actually downloaded the Weather Channel app.
Those ads are going to cause me to delete this app one day. I hope that you can put the viewers and fans first, being perhaps the only company that does so.
Loved the alerts 5/5
By Non LDS
Used this app during Florence. This was such a good decision to get. It was there during the onslaught of wind and rain bands as Florence became a tropical storm, staying over us for three days. I will use this app until something better comes along. Until then, thank you to all the developers from me and my family.
Love it 5/5
I love the accuracy of it
Weather app WRAL 5/5
By j alan l
I love it still figuring it out just down loaded it for Florence
Love the new APP makeover, it was already good; but now it is PERFECT. thanks
I like the old weather alert app 2/5
I miss the old app ability to drop a pin and then have that weather for that pin no matter where I was - I even paid for more than 2 pins and I’ve lost that -
I also think this version is sluggish in loading and refreshing....
Going backwards 1/5
By Bill Siler City
Not even as good as the previous one.And that one wasn’t so great.
Alert issues 3/5
I put the alert on voice and it will default to tone. Also I’m a pretty heavy sleeper and I may be wrong; but I think the alerts don’t work with DND! That’s very concerning!
What makes this app helpful? 1/5
Not helpful at all. I cannot view radar (which is crucial during a hurricane). I keep getting a return of “technical error” messages.
Great New Version 4/5
You can click on the date to see what is forecasted for the entire. Easy to know if my location is cancelled for school or work and I don’t have to look it up.
Very helpful during Florence 5/5
This app, especially the notifications for flash flood and thunderstorms, have been extreme helpful during hurricane Florence here in North Carolina. Thanks!
Awesome help! 5/5
By Señior iPod
Very helpful during the hurricane!
WRAL Weather App 4/5
Keep trying weather apps from here to there, but always seem to come back to the WRAL App. Pretty much says everything I can tell you.
WRAL weather app 5/5
Love the whole WRAL team but Greg Fishel is the very best. Thank you all.
Better than I expected 5/5
Installed this before Florence and appreciated its quality. Loved that the alerts are announced aloud with the banner. That’s really convenient since I can’t always immediately stop, unlock, and look at my phone.
Hurricane map 3/5
I’m writing this during Florence. The image of the hurricane on the map covers the town labels. When I’m trying too see if inland areas where I have family are directly under the heaviest rain, I need an accurate map in my head of the cities under the storm. I would like to see the state border at least so I can approximate what’s where underneath.
Hard to find things 3/5
It took a couple of times of hearing Greg’s voice out of nowhere for me not to jump. It came in very handy when cable went out.
Quick updates 5/5
Just moved here from Portland Oregon, then hurricane Florence hits. No sooner that the weather channel app gives an update this app gives an update. Highly recommend this app especially for severe weather.
Just like a puppy 5/5
This app followed us to Maryland (two locations), Massachusetts,Maine and on the way home through remnants of Hurricane George across Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina back to Raleigh. The predictions held true. Excellent travel companion.
Lousy and doesn’t work 1/5
Radar hasn’t worked since the update. Old version was much better. After months of hoping for better results I finally gave up and deleted it and so did my wife
Thank you! 5/5
Climate information is important and vital, for the safety of every person and family, and WRAL gives it to me. Thank you!
Great app! 5/5
This is such a great app! I love it!
One of my most useful apps 5/5
Current weather and next few hours at a glance, one-click radar and location-based alerts are great. Nice job WRAL!
Almost perfect 4/5
Wish app showed sunrise and sunset times. Other than that I love it
Good but not great 4/5
I’ll admit I haven’t spent the time necessary to investigate all the features of the new app. I, too, miss the old 7-day forecast format (the one we see on air). The current one doesn’t give you that nice visual, at-a-glance overview. Being a math teacher and a visual learner, I love charts and graphs.
I think you do a good job and I always turn to you information Thank you
Like the old version 3/5
By Lolo the gogo
Not very accurate. The radar was so rain over in my area and I look outside in the sun shining.
Love it 5/5
So so good
Good weather app 4/5
By Wendy Bee 33
Nice features, very useable
Love WRAL in general but this new app seems to work properly about 25% of the time. My finger is numb from hitting “retry”. And, when you attempt to let the app developers know, guess what? Retry!
By Kenly NC
Works great for me.
