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.

    This is the way to do weather. I never leave home without it.

    Have used for 4-5 years. I love the higher definition mode which they have had since very early on, before most others. Also like the lightweight, unobtrusive markups, storm vectors and NOAA boxed areas that allow you to see the map, not the ham-fisted, big crayon effect that so many others have. The app is dependable and when there is a problem (once/twice a year?), they tell you what it is and why. Invariably it is a feed from NOAA ( due to API changes I presume), that affects most of the other radar providers as well. Good product. Thank you.
  • Doesn’t show snow radar very well.

    Shows Rain and storms coming but really lacks on accuracy in snow storms and snow fall. What is Up with that?
  • Very useful

  • The Best

    This is my go to radar map for watching the Kansas storms brew up and head towards us. Simple to use, I just leave it in super res mode and hit play. I don’t have much interest in the other overlays it offers.
  • Very decent, one of the better apps

    By kljpo
    Great app I have been using for a few years. Very accurate with many different options in what they offer. Spend some time to get familiar.
  • good radar

    By quick books user
    honestly the app doesnt always perform perfectly but hands down the most accurate radar!!
  • Fading fast. ...not so fast

    By Openco
    This app used to be spot on. It now loads slowly. Doesn’t appear to be as accurate. Doesn’t update accurately. It is no longer better than other apps.
  • Excellent App
