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.

    Great app use it more than local TV! Quick and accurate.
  • Great

    I use this app most every day. It is great when on trips to plan when we might encounter rain miles ahead. I also time my morning dog walks to avoid the rain.
  • Great app

    I love the different features. I particularly like the different types of radar we’re turn. Additionally the total rainfall feature is very helpful.
  • Needs iPhone X display compatibility

    By JTN1689
    This has been a great app for a long time. I enjoy the high res radar display. Would rate 5 stars but it needs some QOL updates; mainly support for the iPhone X display. The app loads on my phone as if I’m using an iPhone 5. Takes away from the high res radar because I’m not using 30% of my screen.
  • Broad scale use

    By Indiana Chaser
    I use this app to quickly get a broad scale overview of storms across the United States. For that purpose alone, it suits My usage pretty well.
  • Use it every day.

    By Sgfarmerz
    Use it every day great app. It gives you many choices of formats. I like the feature of storm tracks so that I have a better idea of tracking and the intensity
  • Great App, but not perfect

    By RainmanNWS
    I use this app not only daily, but throughout the day. This is an outstanding app, and the best radar mosaic app I’ve tried, and as a meteorologist, I’ve tried a lot! Some limitations I’d like to see improved (that would bump my rating to 5 stars) are the following: a 6-frame loop is just too short; I would love to be able to add personal markers, such as location of family members’ homes; please add severe thunderstorm and tornado watch boxes; increase the number of temperature stations, because large cities like Memphis, St Louis, and Dayton are missing temperature stations, and states like WV have only one temperature station; loading speed improvements are needed; looping should be the default mode upon app launch.
  • Bug in update

    By Earlrond
    I have enjoyed using this app for many years, but an odd bug was introduced in the update: the app is stuck in landscape mode on my 2017 iPad Pro 12.9”. Reloading the app and rebooting the iPad didn’t fix things. The odd thing is that the update works just fine on my ancient iPad 2. A minor annoyance, but I hope this gets fixed in the next update
  • It’s great when it works which isn’t often

    By Theodaurus
    The app is great when it functioning which isn’t often. Often says internet is too slow when I have full bars of internet and no trouble with my other apps. Seems to be steadily getting worse and worse. Time to find a better Radar app than this unpredictable crap.
  • Great app

    By asstastichank?
    I have had this app for couple years and no complaints. Very easy to use, with lots of different map overlays. I open the app and it quickly goes to map without asking questions or confusing options, so if you wanna quickly check the radar while running around during the day this will work for you.
