As the official app from the cable TV channel, The Weather Channel is your perfect weather consultant, giving you all the information you need so that you won't be left out in the cold. 

All-purpose weather app

The Weather Channel is a simple but highly navigable app that gives you just the right amount of weather information to help you prepare for the day ahead. The homepage shows current conditions, from which you can swipe down to get more detailed information including humidity, visibility and UV index.

Swipe down further to get an hourly or 10-day forecast, as well as Radar info, an especially cool feature that outlines cloud coverage, rain, or snow, relative temperatures, or UV index, laid out across a map. 

Clicking More on any of these sections will give you detailed information about current or expected weather conditions. For those with allergies, there's also a handy Pollen index.

Another great feature of The Weather Channel app is the social function. It lets you report the weather from where you are with the option to add photos, showing real-time data from other users. If you choose to report the weather conditions in your location, you have to wait at least 15 minutes before you can report again.

If you're worried about severe weather, you can get alerts of extreme weather for any of your saved locations, as well as for pollen.

Sleek as ice

The interface of The Weather Channel is sleek and minimal, with great background images and nice tiled sections which you can easily swipe through to find exactly what you're looking for. You can also change the settings so that the weather is reported in metric or imperial units.

Aside from it's great interface, the app is really easy to navigate, and most of the options are accessed directly by scrolling through the homepage. To add cities, simply click on + in the top right hand corner of the screen; switch them by either swiping left or right.  

Never leave home without your phone... or your jacket

If you want a bit more information than what your mobile device's stock weather app can give, The Weather Channel is a trusted source that's created a great looking app to help you get all your weather-related news in the palm of your hand.
