The Weather Channel, an IBM Business, has long been a go-to for reliable weather reporting, and that is no different with its app. Here you can get user-friendly, easy-to-digest weather information that helps you plan your day or week with a maximum 15-day outlook for both hourly and daily forecasts. You can set up alerts for extreme weather so you always know if bad weather is headed your way. Alerts will continue for you in your area until the weather has passed. Plus, the Weather Channel app offers the latest details on sunsets and moon phases, even incorporating information on the tides. Runners will appreciate the Running Index, which weighs running conditions and lets you know the best time for you to take that jog. Air quality reports measure pollen and other materials in the area, so you know when it is safest to venture outside. You can download air quality reports not only for the U.S. but also for the U.K., Mexico, Spain, France, Germany, China, and India.
The Weather Channel App is available via the App Store and is compatible with your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
