Tempest Weather Radar Free


Tempest weather radar displays real-time NEXRAD (Next-Generation Radar) and TDWR (Terminal Doppler Weather Radar) animated storm radar images overlaid on top of Google maps.

Weather radar data is refreshed every 6 minutes. Although the default user settings are appropriate for most users, some users like to configure optimal settings for their area and personal taste. Tempest weather radar allows users to change the number of frames per animation, cloud transparency, radar type and range of both NEXRAD and TDWR radars. Storm tracking, ground clutter elimination, image smoothing and rain/snow options can also be controlled. Since the familiar Google Maps is used, the user can enable Satellite View and Traffic View if desired.

NEXRAD radar parameters include:
Base Reflectivity N0R
Base Reflectivity N1R
Base Reflectivity N2R
Base Reflectivity N3R
Base Reflectivity N0Z
World Base Reflectivity 00Q
Base Radial Velocity N0V
Base Radial Velocity N1V
Mean Radial Velocity N0S
Mean Radial Velocity N1S
Mean Radial Velocity N2S
Mean Radial Velocity N3S
Total Surface Rainfall NTP
One Hour Rainfall N1P

TDWR radar parameters include:
Base Reflectivity TR0
Base Reflectivity TR1
Base Reflectivity TR2
Long Range Reflectivity TZL
Base Radial Velocity TV0
Base Radial Velocity TV1
Mean Radial Velocity TV2
WSR Base Reflectivity N0Q
WSR Base Reflectivity NAQ
WSR Base Reflectivity N1Q
WSR Base Reflectivity NBQ
WSR Base Reflectivity N2Q
WSR Base Reflectivity N3Q
WSR Base Radial Velocity N0U
WSR Base Radial Velocity NAU
WSR Base Radial Velocity N1U
WSR Base Radial Velocity N0U
WSR Base Radial Velocity NBU
WSR Base Radial Velocity N2U
WSR Base Radial Velocity N3U
WSR Digital Storm Total Precipitation DSP
WSR Surface Rainfall 1 hour N1P
WSR Surface Rainfall storm total NTP
WSR Mean Radial Velocity N0S
WSR Mean Radial Velocity N1S
WSR Mean Radial Velocity N2S
WSR Mean Radial Velocity N3S

Although initially designed as a weather radar only solution, Tempest weather radar can retrieve current local weather conditions, 10 day forecast and hourly forecast data by tapping on the red location icon. Alternatively, "long pressing" on a map location will bring up the weather forecast of that location.

Currently, Tempest weather radar overlay data is available only for the USA and the bordering regions of Canada and Mexico. Also, Tempest weather radar is currently only available on the android platform.

Thanks for trying Tempest Weather Radar. We hope you enjoy it!

This program is under active development.

You can see the clouds moving but there is no time on the screen!? It's just like many of the other terrible weather forecast apps flooding the Play Store. Nothing unique or intuitive about it. If it had the time listed on the screen so you could actually determine where the clouds or rain was going to be at a certain time it would actually be useful. Also, it desperately needs forecasts above city names.

Really like this app,but would like widgets then it would be perfect. Why don't you have them?

Tremendous, just tremendous Excellent color of cloud layering, the highest level of the thunder head, indicates, the more severity of the storms. So eloquent job well done and better yet, your preciseness in sharp and crisp detailing. Thanks!

Great but hourly forecast at night shows suns Most any radar has a 5 minute delay. This is a great radar, especially in the summer, tracking thunderstorms (nitpicking, wish speed of storms were in MPH). And as a bonus, you now get accurate Weather Underground forecasts. My only wishes are for a link or tutorial on the multiple radar settings and a tiny clock on the radar. Also can you have the hourly forecast extends to 24-48 hours instead of 12?

Good Mitchell Tubbs told me about it. .. because it's raining. .
