Enter Weather Underground. Yes, the internet’s first ever weather website is now offered in a mobile app. This app taps into 24,000+ stations so it gets hyperlocal weather in the exact location you are looking for. Just in “West Los Angeles”, the data filters from 4 airport stations and over 30 “personal weather stations”. Plus, in situations like mine this weekend, I could see the current weather or the predicted weather a few hours in the future so I can see what the temperature should be like by the time I beat the LA traffic to the beach.
Luckily, this weekend’s weather was perfect. And I made it to the beach and even knew it would be nice enough that I should pick up some suntan lotion on the way. That’s my kind of app.
