3 best apps to help you watch the weather

So far it has been an interesting winter for weather. While most phones come with a native app for the basic forecast, these apps give you your weather update in whatever style suits you.

NOAA Now

The weather app for the scientist.

The NOAA Now app goes a bit beyond the average weather app by including satellite views and radar of all the impending weather. The app was created by a third-party developer, but all the information comes directly from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

NOAA Now is available for free for Apple and for $.99 for Android.

Solar

A weather app for the design-loving minimalist.

This app displays the current temperature as a gradient of color. To see the hourly forecast, touch and drag to watch the clock, color gradient and temperatures change. 

The app's website proclaims "no meteorological bells and whistles," and for some people, that's exactly what they want.

The app is available for free for Apple and Android.

Swackett

A weather app for the fashion-conscious.

Swackett doesn't just tell you the weather, it tells you what you should wear. In additon to the weather and fashion tips, the app also logs your regular activites (golf, skiing, etc.)  and tells you what today's weather will be good for.

The app is free for Apple and Android but also includes optional fashion editions for purchase, including the 1950's edition and the undergrad edition.
