StormEye


StormEye provides detailed storm tracking information and weather radar images overlaid on Google Maps. For each storm, StormEye provides important information such as the storm's location relative to your location, where the storm is heading, estimated time of arrival (ETA), the storm's intensity, hail probabilities, and maximum hail size.

StormEye is free, without ads. You can support development by donating from within the app. Thanks!

StormEye functions by downloading data from the National Weather Service for the selected WSR-88D weather radar. The radar closest to your current location is automatically chosen; however, you can quickly switch to any of the 156 NWS WSR-88D radars across the United States. The downloaded data is then used to construct a weather radar with markers and tracks for every detected storm.

One of my favorite apps! A must for anyone needing accurate weather info. This app tracked the deadly El Reno, OK tornado more accurately than the other weather apps, along with the est. time of each storm. I LOVE IT!!!! Thanks so much for making a reliable app!
