This app excels at giving comprehensive information in real-time, including wind speed and direction on the home page. It’s not the prettiest, but it is useful if, and this is a big if, it has a weather station near you. The app takes information from their nearest weather station – for example the nearest to Snowdon is Bangor and for Eastbourne it is Lydd Airport in Kent, 39 miles away. There’s a detailed five-day forecast but the extreme weather alerts are only in the US at the moment. The map has a fascinating world overview (for those weather geeks) and more localised map layers of temperature and rainfall.
