NOAA SuperRes Radar US - HD Weather Radar and Forecasts
Are you a weather buff and ready to move beyond the ordinary and into the realm of beautiful super hi-resolution radar images? Then check out NOAA Radar US+, the only app in the app store that offers access to animated SuperRes radar mosaics for the continental US from NOAA's National Weather Service! Unlike other apps that claim to be "hi-def", we deliver on our promise! 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 addition to Level 2 radar, NOAA RadarUS+ offers access to hurricane tracks and water vapor imagery as well as all of the features of our best-selling NOAA RadarUS app:
- 2 and 6 day precipitation and pressure forecasts from NOAA weather models

- Snow/mixed precipitation display (only on 1km base reflectivity radar layer)
