Updated Flagship WU App for All iOS Platforms, including Apple Watch

By: Bob Henson and Jeff Masters 2:47 PM GMT on April 24, 2015

The latest version of Weather Underground’s flagship app is now available for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, as well as Apple Watch, which debuts on Friday. The app is free to download from the App Store, including the dedicated App Store for Apple Watch.

Small is beautiful
WU developers have compressed many of the features familiar to WU fans into an elegantly compact format for Apple Watch, which measures about 1.6” by 1.4” wide. This format includes:

• “Force Touch” navigation for quick access to hourly outlooks, ten-day forecasts, and saved locations, plus options for graph view and list view
• Notifications on the latest NWS severe weather alerts
• Real-time radar and satellite imagery

Users across iOS platforms will find a range of enhancements in the latest version of the WU flagship app, including:
• A new layout for quick access to your favorite weather data
• An “interface-lift” that allows the most customizable app experience yet, including light or dark mode, map types, metric/English units, and rearrangeable tiles
• Worldwide storm tracking on the hurricane and tropical storm tile
• The ability to submit local sky and hazard reports
• New animations and visualizations for health information (UV index, pollen counts, flu prevalence)

“Timing is everything with weather, and we want to ensure that users receive the most accurate, hyper-local weather information possible, which is why we’ve made it easily accessible across all iOS devices,” says Jim Menard, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Weather Underground.

WU is working on some exciting options for Android fans as well. Stay tuned for more details.


Strong tornadoes possible Friday in southern Plains, Saturday in Tennessee Valley
Another round of severe weather is expected to fire up from Kansas to Texas on Friday afternoon, spreading into the Mississippi Valley overnight. This time the tornado threat will be heightened by a strong upper-level wave flowing atop unstable air pooled along a dry line and warm front. Last night’s models slowed down the approach of the upper wave, which should allow for deeper moisture and stronger vertical wind shear to support potentially tornadic supercells along a corridor that includes Dallas/Fort Worth, Oklahoma City, and Wichita. Extensive thunderstorms that covered much of Texas on Friday morning should move off to the east later in the day, permitting at least some heating and destabilization of the air mass. NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center has placed parts of Kansas (near the intersection of the dry line and warm front) and northeast Texas into northwest Louisiana (where moisture should be especially rich) under an enhanced risk of severe weather, with very large hail possible in both areas and significant tornadoes possible in the southern area. We’ll be covering Friday’s severe weather in a live blog accessible from the WU home page.

A significant tornado threat may emerge on Saturday in and near Tennessee and southwest Kentucky as the system moves east; SPC has placed this area under an enhanced risk in its Day 2 outlook. Yet another round of substantial severe weather may unfold on Monday across Texas, with models suggesting that an especially potent upper low will encounter deep moisture and extremely high instability.


Unique climate odyssey to set sail in June
This June, a unique year-long sailing expedition and art and science collaboration called Climate Odyssey will depart from Manitowoc, Wisconsin, go through the Great Lakes, head down the Erie Canal, then make its way southwards along the U.S. East Coast to the Caribbean. Along the way, hydrologist Zion Klos and artist Lucy Holtsnider will be photographing climate change impacts and adaptation strategies, interviewing stakeholders, politicians, scientists and artists, and visiting classrooms and community groups. They will share their photographs and encounters in an interactive digital map and blog on their website. Each image added to the digital map will be linked to relevant blog entries and other adaptation resources, making the map both a piece of art and an engaging tool for sharing the science of climate change. At the end of the journey, they will print out the digital map and make it into an artists' book, like this prototype at right, to be shared in libraries, galleries, and classrooms in those same communities they visited. Jeff had the opportunity to meet this creative duo last summer at a workshop on climate change communication hosted by the American Geophysical Union, and enjoyed experiencing their energy and dedication. Communicating the magnitude of the climate change challenge is one that can use more innovative efforts like theirs, and we encourage you to join us in supporting the Climate Odyssey by contributing to their Indiegogo fundraising campaign, needed to cover the costs of restoring the old sailboat they are using.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Good afternoon. Vivid and electric Sunday weather today in many parts of Europe, and warnings are out for the western Mediterranean tomorrow as the cold boys Vasco and - in the north - Waldemar take control over Europe's sky. No rain yet at my place near Frankfurt (though some places around me got at least some showers), but hopefully an airmass boundary across central Germany tomorrow should trigger some much needed drops ...

Several cells are starting to show rotations. I wouldn't be surprised if we see a tornado warning soon on some of these cells.
Another warning added on the southern cell.

The red area is expanding quickly in those storms. I don't pay much attention to this stuff, so maybe that's normal. I've no idea whether that means tornadoes are likely. A lot of factors contribute to tornadogenesis, but I know that red = above average risk.
These supercells that have popped up near Abilene Texas are especially nasty looking.

Haven't seen a confirmation on whether or not there's a tornado on the ground, but people in Anson, TX should be taking cover right now regardless. The cell is basically on top of them.

We should see an increase in mid-level shear as a jet streak rounding the base of the trough out west encroaches on the region. Low-level shear should increase throughout the evening hours as well.

The next round of storms that should fire south of the current ones are the storms I'm most concerned about.
And all is quiet in both central and south Florida High for Port Charlotte Florida 92 Degrees. Heat Index topped out at 105. currently 89 with a heat index of 101. thanks to the great sw wind topping out around 20mph kept thing quite bearable today.

Surface-1-km Vertical Shear Vector (kts)

Surface-1-km Vertical Shear is the difference between the surface wind and the wind at 1-km above ground level. These data are plotted as vectors with shear magnitudes contoured. 0-1-km shear magnitudes greater than 15-20 knots tend to favor supercell tornadoes.

I don't know why it takes the NWS so long to add tornado warnings to their radar.
The TVN chase page and TWC show the warnings 10 minutes before the NWS puts it up on their radar.

It's hard to figure it out because their stream is constantly dropping, but Minuteman Disaster Response seems to be reporting a rain-wrapped tornado.
95° at PBIA. A new record. Let's see what the latest is from the Miami NWS office...

MID LEVEL MOISTURE WILL SLOWLY RETURN ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY AS AN
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH DEEPENS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PLAINS MONDAY AND
TUESDAY WITH A SURFACE LOW BEING INDUCED ALONG THE CENTRAL GULF
COAST. THIS WILL MAINTAIN A DEEP SOUTHWEST TO WEST FLOW ACROSS SOUTH
FLORIDA ON MONDAY WITH A LOW LEVEL SOUTHERLY FLOW DEVELOPING BY
TUESDAY. THIS WILL ALSO MAINTAIN TEMPERATURES WELL ABOVE THE AVERAGE
MARK FOR LATE APRIL WITH READINGS ONCE AGAIN CLIMBING INTO AT LEAST
THE LOWER 90S ALONG THE EAST COAST AND PERHAPS JUST ONE OR TWO
DEGREES LOWER ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON WITH AN INCREASING AMOUNT OF
CLOUD COVER BY THEN. THE PWAT WILL JUMP BACK UP TO THE RANGE OF 1.6-
1.7" THROUGH THIS PERIOD WITH MID LEVEL SOUTHWEST WINDS ALSO
INCREASING IN THE RANGE OF 30-40 KNOTS. THIS WILL RESULT IN
INCREASING INSTABILITY AND THUS INCREASING CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ESPECIALLY BY TUESDAY.

.LONG TERM (WEDNESDAY-SUNDAY)...
THE MID LEVEL TROUGH WILL SLOWLY GET PICKED UP BY A NORTHERN STREAM
TROUGH AND SHIFT EAST THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF THE EXTENDED PERIOD.
THE GFS HAS COME MORE IN LINE WITH THE SOLUTION DEPICTED BY THE
ECMWF AND NOW HAS A LATE SEASON COOL FRONT PUSHING ACROSS SOUTH
FLORIDA LATE THURSDAY. AHEAD OF THE FRONT, PLENTY OF MOISTURE AND
INSTABILITY WILL PERSIST ACROSS SOUTH FLORIDA ON WEDNESDAY INTO
EARLY THURSDAY TO KEEP CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
ELEVATED. THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY AS TO HOW STRONG
THUNDERSTORMS MAY BECOME ON WEDNESDAY DEPENDING ON THE EXACT
POSITION OF THE SURFACE LOW PRESSURE AND THE AMOUNT OF CLOUD COVER
THAN COULD INHIBIT THE DIURNAL HEATING CYCLE. AT ANY RATE, IT
APPEARS MORE LIKELY THAT MUCH DRIER CONDITIONS WILL PUSH INTO THE
AREA LATE IN THE WEEK AND INTO NEXT WEEKEND.

I'd love to know how the NWS is coming up with the wording on these warnings. This is comical. They had it as a PDS for awhile. Then they dropped that designation for awhile. Now it's back on, although it's just a "confirmed tornado" now, not a large extremely dangerous one. And there's been no appreciable change in the strength and structure of the storm over the whole process, nor have I seen any visual confirmation of the tornado. PDS has no meaning anymore, it can't if this is how they're going to use it. Maybe it still works for an SPC watch, but not a warning.

You're being too harsh. I think this NWS office made a mistake to go off of a single storm chaser's report (although who did it I don't know). Reminds me of Paducah NWS last year I think that issued a PDS warning off of a public report, when the data didn't align. This storm was/is more capable of producing one...it just hasn't.

The other day i saw a pds tornado warning that said that a storm was CAPABLE of producing a large and extremely dangerous tornado (this was the storm that produced a brief tornado near novice on friday). I'm surprised that in spite of the persistent morning precip and high level cirrus clouds associated with the jet stream (with both of these being the reasons why there was little clearing and considerably less instability, not to mention the storms didn't stay discrete for very long) they kept the 10% hatched tornado area all day.

It speaks more to the general increase in the number of chasers and a subsequent increase in un-qualified reports (and chasers)...
I was watching Bob Pack's feed just a little earlier and they were yelling "tornado on the ground" and I could see a rotating rain shield and fast rotation near the tree line.
From the feed it was hard to 100% confirm it was a tornado, but it sure looked like a tornado that was rain wrapped.

Except I don't think seasoned meteorologists would take part in hype of a particular cell. I asked my local NWS guys last summer about what Paducah did, and they said they would definitely not have given a warning just based on the report (if the velocities didn't match), but they said they didn't know the full extent of Paducah's knowledge of the storm, so they couldn't comment on what Paducah did. Little bit of a political response, but then again, I wouldn't expect them to bash their colleagues.

The new language that is coming out with these tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings aren't supposed to hype the storm, they're supposed to try to convey warning to the public and get them to take the necessary precautions.

As for precedents, I'd be more concerned with the rate at which tornado warnings don't verify over the rate at which PDS warnings are verified.

C'mon Jed, you're a smart guy, you know what I mean. It's not everyone. But the media sensationalizes everything so much these days, it's just awful. It did not used to be like this. Social media is largely to blame of course, but major news outlets, particularly TWC, are at fault as well.

You're right that media sensationalization hasn't always been like it is today, but I wouldn't argue it's anything particularly new either. The 2008-09 timeframe is when I think clickbait and unnecessary hype started to become commonplace.
1938 was a slow year in the Atlantic basin. One notable exception being the Long Island Express. I think I may have found some coast guard training footage from Manasquan Inlet September, 1938 that features the heavy swell from the storm.

I'm going to say it...it only takes one. If that storm hit today, I'm guessing 50 Billion in damages.

If you look closely you can see the wildfires smoke plume streaming WNW from the Yucatan peninsula towards the Gulf, and being caught in the Westerly flow moving towards central Florida. Must be a nice red sunset over there.



Stephenville is getting absolutely hammered today. A possible violent tornado may be on the ground to the SE of Stephenville right now.
Reports of power flashes associated with the tornado warning SE of Stephenville, TX.
Quoting 582. CybrTeddy:

Reports of power flashes associated with the tornado warning SE of Stephenville, TX.

Probably just strong straight-line winds. Chasers aren't reporting a tornado in progress.
Quoting 579. HaoleboySurfEC:

1938 was a slow year in the Atlantic basin. One notable exception being the Long Island Express. I think I may have found some coast guard training footage from Manasquan Inlet September, 1938 that features the heavy swell from the storm.

I'm going to say it...it only takes one. If that storm hit today, I'm guessing 50 Billion in damages.

See link...cool footage.

Part of Master's research focused on the 38 LIE. It was one amazing storm. The barrier island I live on off of western Long Island saw 30-40 mph winds during the storm while just 40-50 miles to the east reported (still a hot question of debate) wind gusts were up to 180+ mph. Destroyed many homes on LI and caught many people off guard due to the US Weather Bureau (now the NWS) declaring it would go out to sea only hours before it made landfall at a reported (again, question of debate) 60-70 mph forward northern motion.

It really did a number in New England as well, particularly Rhode Island. Completely wiped out the settlement of Napatree Point at the far western end of RI, caused massive flooding in Westerly proper and caused a storm surge of 13.8 ft in downtown Providence (very susceptible to storm surge due to the funnel-nature of Narragansett Bay; that's why the Foxpoint Hurricane Barrier was built in the 1960s.).

If a storm like that came along today, oh boy I can't imagine the damages.
This sunday was VERY hot! EL NINO in the Caribbean = hot and dry

Yea, not sure what's going on exactly. It's like there's several circulations all over the place.
I'm listening to the ghostly, distance howling of the tornado sirens on the chaser live streams. Incredibly creepy.
Quoting 577. MAweatherboy1:


C'mon Jed, you're a smart guy, you know what I mean. It's not everyone. But the media sensationalizes everything so much these days, it's just awful. It did not used to be like this. Social media is largely to blame of course, but major news outlets, particularly TWC, are at fault as well. The NWS is still pretty good in my book, but unfortunately they can fall victim to the increasing number of idiots out there reporting unsubstantiated large tornadoes. The warning coordination on that earlier storm was terrible.


Alright I gotcha, I didn't know you were specifically talking about the media and the general public. I definitely agree, but keep in mind that meteorology as a science isn't ruined because of any of that. I mean, it does create problem in terms of what the general public believes, but it doesn't change the actually quality of credible meteorology sources, it just makes it more confusing for the public to know what the real truth is when there are many other hyped sources for profit through media and social media.

A few spots hit 100 today in SE Florida and 99 in Ft. Lauderdale, and that's with high dew points too, scary stuff.
The supercell south of DFW is eerily reminiscent of the latter stages of the El Reno tornado, with multiple mesocyclones producing brief tornadoes. I saw at least one anticyclonic couplet in the earlier stages of this storm.

Everybody in the warning polygon needs to be seeking shelter, and chasers on the storm need to back way off. This is an extremely unpredictable storm.

A lot of smoke and haze coming from wildfires in Mexico, and Yucatan peninsula. If you look closely you can see the wildfires smoke plume streaming WNW from the Yucatan peninsula towards the Gulf, and being caught in the Westerly flow moving towards central Florida. Must be a nice red sunset over there.

What chaos?
We've had tornados throughout all of recorded history.
They scare me, but there's nothing new here.
In fact, in spite of atmo 2.0 now with 10% water vapor we're on track to see the fewest tornados. Perhaps less extreme weather of all kinds. Extreme droughts, ocean water rises and heating......that's the ticket.

FT. LAUDERDALE INTL, PALM BEACH INTL) REACHING 96F. HOWEVER, THE
WINNER GOES TO THE BOCA AREA...WITH A COUPLE MESONET SITES
REGISTERING 100F. FT. LAUDERDALE EXECUTIVE HIT 99F!


THE EVENING MIAMI SOUNDING MEASURED AN IMPRESSIVE 850 MB TEMP OF

YUCATAN OF MEXICO OVERSPREADING SOUTH FLORIDA.


A few spots hit 100 today in SE Florida and 99 in Ft. Lauderdale, and that's with high dew points too, scary stuff.
Was 90 here yesterday .... crazy for April in Nassau ...

The kelvin wave this year is bigger by this time compared to last year.
The wx over TX is pretty impressive. It looks like it's going to impact parts of the deep south as well. .... the earthquake news is also quite grim

Freak storm kills 45 in Pakistan
Source: Reuters - Mon, 27 Apr 2015 08:25 GMT, By Jibran Ahmad
PESHAWAR, Pakistan, April 27 (Reuters) - A freak "mini-cyclone" tore roofs of buildings and brought down trees and power poles in Pakistan, killing 45 people and injuring more than 200, officials said on Monday.
Army teams were on their way to the area of Peshawar city to help with the rescue, a military spokesman said.
"We've never experienced such a devastating wind storm before in this region," said Mushtaq Shah, director general of the Meteorological Office in Peshawar.
"Its speed in the open was more than 120 kph (75 mph) and that's what caused destruction on such a large scale. It's a completely new phenomenon in this region." ...

If this verifies, it will be the first below average temperature day we've had in months here.

Local forecast calls for a high of 81 on Friday. That's 10 degrees cooler than the past few days. But it should feel even better with much lower dewpoints.

Dewpoints in the mid 70s here at 5 AM. It is oppressively humid out, almost more so than summer. I'm very excited for the potential of drier air.

First line went through with no problem here in my part ofnorthern jasper co. Thank goodness.
Tornado warned south and east of us. Heads up LAbonbon and AthomeinTexas.
Powers out so it's coffee via sterno and headlamp this morning. Entertainment by NOAA weather radio.
Everyone stay safe out there.

I was wondering how you fared. Nice to see you're prepared w/ sterno/headlamp/weather radio :) Can't recall off the top of my head where AthomeinTexas lives. yoboi should be under the gun right about now (he's in Acadiana).
