Forecast reports: [edited]
How is Forecast different from other weather services?
Maps and rain animations: We’ve taken radar animations and expanded them to allow you to scrub up to a week into the future to see how storm systems will develop and evolve world-wide.
Down to the minute forecasts, for your exact location: We can predict when it will rain or snow — down to the minute — at your exact location anywhere we have radar coverage (currently the United States, the UK, Ireland, parts of Canada, and Puerto Rico, with more countries coming soon).
Intelligent text summaries: Most people don’t really care about things like wind speed and humidity unless it’s exceptional for their location. Using the historical data, we know what “exceptional” is for any time and place, and roll it up into the summaries.
It works on all your devices: There’s a web interface for your laptop and a mobile version for your iPhone, Android phone, or tablet. You can install Forecast directly on your phone simply by visiting forecast.io on your device and adding it to your home screen. It’s completely free.
