Top 5 iOS Weather Apps To Use In 2020

ClimaCell Weather Assistant

ClimaCell Weather Assistant is provided by Boston-based weather startup, ClimaCell. The app features an array of useful features, however, one of the best parts about the app is its Weather of Things (WoT) technology. This combines standard weather data with data from connected devices such as drones and other aircraft to provide a more accurate weather forecasting picture.

In addition to its increased accuracy, ClimaCell Weather Assistant features accurate and timely severe weather alerts to keep you safe. Furthermore, the app has a range of activities which can be selected and the app will then inform you about whether the conditions outside are acceptable for your chosen activity in your area. 

Finally, their hyper-local forecasting technology allows you to get an accurate picture of the weather for a location as small as a city block. This is perfect for those last-minute barbeques and dog walks.

To download ClimaCell Weather Assistant, visit the App Store.


Radarscope is a great weather app for those who have a deeper love and understanding of weather data and enjoy it being presented within a visual format. 

The app provides a variety of different pieces of information, including severe weather alerts. When coupled with the visual elements of the app’s radar mapping, this means that you will be able to stay safe as you observe the movements of severe weather patterns. 

There are also a number of information layers, meaning you can greatly augment your weather information.

AccuWeather is another weather forecasting pick that prides itself on the accuracy of its reporting. Furthermore, the app has the great ability to condense a lot of information into each window within it. 

In addition to accurate reporting and a user-friendly interface, AccuWeather also has a feature that will tell you whether or not you should expect rain to fall in your location within the next 60 minutes, making it perfect for that last-minute coat grab.

Not only will AccuWeather give you the temperature conditions, but the app will also provide you with information on UV levels, wind conditions, visibility, cloud cover and humidity.

CARROT Weather

CARROT Weather is a great weather app for people that like their weather forecasting to be injected with a little humour, rather than seeing the same old forecasts on their screens every day. 

The app pulls its data from Dark Sky and uses it to generate 7-day forecasts with a touch of sarcastic humour to brighten even the stormiest of days. You can also change the settings for the humour to include something that is a little bit more suited to your own tastes.
