Wake up in the morning, and you're almost as likely to check the weather as grab a cup of coffee. 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.




Finally, an app that only works on Android devices, Flowx pulls from NOAA and the Canadian Meteorological Center data sources, to present seven to 10 days of forecasts. And surfers will also appreciate the wave and swell forecasts as well. The app is free, but there is a Pro version which pulls from data across the globe. The company is also working on an iOS version, and you can sign up to get notified when that launches — although one year out, and we still haven't seen anything on that front yet.
