WeatherGeek Pro 2

Hurricane Baby, LLC
WeatherGeek Pro 2 is a premium weather application which brings the world’s most advanced weather data right to your fingertips! For the first time on a mobile app, view the same numerical weather models professional meteorologists use to develop their forecasts on our beautiful Retina-quality graphical interface. If you’re a serious WeatherGeek who likes to dive into the data, this is the app you’ve been dreaming of!

Choose weather maps for North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and tropical regions* from our “global” suite of models which include the GFS (Global Forecasting System), GEFS (Global Ensemble Forecasting System), the NAEFS (North American Ensemble Forecast System), the WW3 (Wave Watch 3) Model and the ECMWF (European) Model.

You can also choose “regional” weather maps for North America, the United States and Alaska from the NAM (North American Mesoscale), NAM-HIRES (4km NAM), the SREF (Short Range Ensemble Forecast), the HRW-NMMB, and the HRW-ARW (High Resolution Window WRF).

Scan the atmosphere in three dimensions by checking out skew-t (weather balloon data) charts for the continental United States.**

Not a huge WeatherGeek and want to see more traditional weather maps? No problem! Check out our WPC Interface which allows you to view current and future surface weather maps out to seven days along with QPF (Quantified Precipitation Forecast) maps, and other weather hazard maps for the United States and southern Canada.**

Easily navigate through the maps by simply swiping your finger to advance or go backwards in time. You can also swipe your finger up and down to control which level of the atmosphere you are viewing. To see more detail for your area, easily zoom in and out on the maps by pinching or stretching. Drag your finger around on the map to scroll. Tap the play button to animate the maps and to see weather features progress in time. Draw on the maps using the drawing tool. Best of all, you have the ability to share all of these map images on popular social networking platforms like Twitter with the tap of your finger.
