Even for those who spend most of their days working from home, knowing if the morning is going to dawn with blue skies or a downpour is something most of is would like to know. But today, there are apps that can tell you far more than the temperature of chance for some precipitation.

These 11 weather apps can be downloaded to your iPhone or Android smartphone, and deliver pollen counts, show satellite readings and even pull radar maps — all helpful, and for some likely fun, in planning your day or even the week ahead.

Apple Weather app

You can always — if you're on iOS — just use the Weather app that just sits on iOS. On one screen you can see air quality, the chance of snow, wind direction, humidity and even weather forecasts for up to 9 days, both lows and highs. You can set up to 17 cities in the app as well, and at a glance even know if the sun is up in that part of the world, or it's nighttime, plus the weather there from cloudy skies to snow.
