Even when the sun comes out, the screens start to light up again right through the day, and the screen turns dark as night falls.

Google is really becoming an underdog.

The ability to set alerts based on custom weather parameters for any spot anywhere in the world gives you simple alerts sent to your email or phone a couple of days out ahead of forecasted conditions. Also, if you go on the desktop version, you can create custom colors for layers, which will transfer to your phone if you are logged into the same account. Great for fishing, boating, any sport where wind and weather are considered, other sea activities like swimming and diving, spearfishing, etc. Great for aviators, boaters, travelers, people who are interested in the weather, people who like lots of colours, everyone. Between the many options for layers on the map and the multiple options for forecast models, there is enough information available to really get a good idea of what is going on in the atmosphere. Sadly, in the app and widget alike, even the recently-added, smaller-area HRRR CONUS tends towards wrong forecasts lately.

There are minute details in the hourly forecast that span an almost two-day period, allowing you to see trends in the weather and in the days ahead. There are a variety of widgets, too, displaying as much or as little as you want on your home screen. The widget has links on the time, date, and weather that lead to the Android time, Google Calendar, and this app. The backgrounds are comforting and engaging, although slightly more variations with weather changes would add more subtle variety. Needs a few more options, like change font, font color, the ability to choose what the widget will display, like turning off wind speed, pressure, location, etc. You can even disable location services and choose the locations you want forecasts for, manually.

The ability to add other places of interest across the country and have their weather on hand is also a plus. Always accurate and easy to use, especially the radar sequence, point of time accuracy, and very good at looking forward a day or so to see what is brewing up and wind directions. Good for predicting expected conditions to check for weather windows, though drizzle and light cloud cover is not always displayed. Is animation shows the last couple of hours, then predicts the next couple? You can set multiple locations, which you can pull down and select.
