Wundermap? WunderMap® | Interactive Weather Map and Radar | Weather UndergroundI also found that these home weather stations, usually electronically connect some network that shows up in an app.
I found a couple of apps rely on a network of local home weather stations for reports.
The “fly in the ointment” as they say, is a lack of standardization. The reporters foot the bill for their own home stations. There are many brands and variable accuracy between them. Installation location matters too.
How do I know this? I had an app that consistently reported a local temp that was way apart from from even what I was seeing on TV. It became obvious that there was a problem with the particular home weather station. I sent an email to the developer. No response. What I expected.
Radar reports are another ball game.
So I do what I always do. Look at my app for current and forecast conditions, my cheapie temp guage, and a look at the sky and set off.
