An app designed by and for weather enthusiasts, NOAA SuperRes Radar is the only app in that offers access to stunningly beautiful super hi-resolution radar mosaics for the continental US. SuperRes radar has 4 times the resolution of typical weather radar products (250 meters vs 1000 meters), so you will be able to view storm features that can't be viewed in ordinary radar apps. No other app delivers radar mosaics with this kind of accuracy in such an easy to use package. In addition to SuperRes Level 2 radar, NOAA RadarUS+ offers access to 3 km hourly forecast radar and the following features: - 3 and 6 day precipitation and pressure forecasts from NOAA weather models - Temperature overlay - Snow/mixed precipitation display (only on 1km base reflectivity radar layer) - 7 day forecasts and current conditions -- just press and hold for a second on the radar map. - Severe weather (flash flood, tornado, and severe thunderstorm) warnings. Tap on a warning box to display the full warning message from the National Weather Service. Note: these are *not* push alerts. The app must be open to view the warnings. - Cloud cover and satellite imagery for the continental United States - Advanced radar layers (echo tops, composite reflectivity, and storm total precipitation). - Play, pause, and step animations - Fast zoom in and zoom out - Choice of radar palettes - Multiple map styles (terrain, map, satellite, and hybrid) - Displays time of radar image either as absolute time or relative to the current time - GPS locator that finds and displays your current location - Adjust the transparency (opacity) of the radar or cloud cover overlays - Radar clutter filtering and smoothing - Automatic refresh when new radar or cloud cover data is available - Search for a location by zip code, city name, or address - Legend for radar and cloud cover overlays - Saves and restores your last location and zoom level Note: Radar coverage only includes the continental United States. Alaska, Hawaii, and other US controlled territories are not included. Support: Please follow our Twitter stream at for breaking news and status updates.

    Decent app, but it needs some better definitions.
  • Supplies the critical piece of information

    By Pahoo_Katawah
    Back in the 1980’s Doppler radar became the new fad. It used the same color scheme as that which it replaced but made no sense to me. What it replaced was “Cloud Tops” where, when you saw red you knew there was a potential for really severe weather, if not already in progress. This app has restored Cloud Tops! That was the critical piece of missing information in all other weather graphics, regarding storms and severe weather. That has become my ‘go to’ screen. It is why I purchased this and I am now a happy prognosticator! Thanks! Pahoo Katawah PS It would be even better if the user had control of the display to show them by height (in feet) or a range of heights, as between x thousand feet and y thousand feet but I’ll put that in as a request for upgrade. Update: I’m now using most of the features but again, the one drawback is that the color indices are really lacking. I am changing my ⭐️ rating but if the developer wanted to get a real bang for the buck improvement for a minimal time effort, this would be it!!! ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️
  • Highly configurable radar app

    By BugBitten
    Lots of accurate radar available. Forecast tracks are spot-on. Easy & fast to view composite, high-res and other radars for a more complete picture of what’s going on. Highly recommended.
