Mythical forecasts
DoogieBo on 7/21/2017
Why am I getting weather alerts for storms in the Midwest? We are in the Caribbean! Currently showing "marine Weather Statement in effect" scrolling across the top as an "Alert". When I click on it, it gives me a statement in Spanish only, and "Issuing office: Puerto Rico". Please inform the Puerto Rico office that they need to at least also include their alerts in English, especially when their alert applies to the USVI. Forget the "Weather Stories"! We come to your app/site for WEATHER, not entertainment! The app is already too cluttered! Could you just forecast, or even report the current conditions, close to reality? But, I guess they are just meteorologists - it isn't like it is a science...
I like the app
Kusenka on 7/21/2017
This application 99% right on the weather. Not just in USA, but for example in Russia as well. I always can rely on them to tell me what's the weather will be like.

Best weather app out there. I've tried several and the all pale.

Any nicknamed that's not used on 7/21/2017
Very useful app in general and helpful high and low tide info added in recent update. I do have a question about the tide times provided. How can I tell the exact location you are using for your high and low tides? An example would be Oak Island N.C. If the approaching high tide is at 6:43 PM, where is that on the island? Some apps use data from the East or West end of the island, some from one of the piers, and some use data from neighboring islands. This may seem trivial, but it is very important when calculating current flow direction in the backwaters. There is over a 2 hour lag in some locations depending on where you reference the high tide. This information is invaluable when making plans. Whether it is for fishing, shrimping, taking the children out, walking the dogs, and especially boating. When you are paddling a kayak, it is bad enough to try and fight the current, but getting stuck in the marsh overnight is very unpleasant.
It's good!

However, it's rarely spot on for my location; it shows the same weather for locations that are near me but are further from the coast.

I have several weather apps, and try using different ones from time to time, but I always return to The Weather app because it remains my favorite. It is easy to use, informative, and provides all the information I need in one easy to use app.
