An app designed by and for weather enthusiasts, NOAA SuperRes Radar is the only app in that offers access to stunningly beautiful super hi-resolution radar mosaics for the continental US. SuperRes radar has 4 times the resolution of typical weather radar products (250 meters vs 1000 meters), so you will be able to view storm features that can't be viewed in ordinary radar apps. No other app delivers radar mosaics with this kind of accuracy in such an easy to use package. In addition to SuperRes Level 2 radar, NOAA RadarUS+ offers access to 3 km hourly forecast radar and the following features: - 3 and 6 day precipitation and pressure forecasts from NOAA weather models - Temperature overlay - Snow/mixed precipitation display (only on 1km base reflectivity radar layer) - 7 day forecasts and current conditions -- just press and hold for a second on the radar map. - Severe weather (flash flood, tornado, and severe thunderstorm) warnings. Tap on a warning box to display the full warning message from the National Weather Service. Note: these are *not* push alerts. The app must be open to view the warnings. - Cloud cover and satellite imagery for the continental United States - Advanced radar layers (echo tops, composite reflectivity, and storm total precipitation). - Play, pause, and step animations - Fast zoom in and zoom out - Choice of radar palettes - Multiple map styles (terrain, map, satellite, and hybrid) - Displays time of radar image either as absolute time or relative to the current time - Full screen, portrait, and landscape views - GPS locator that finds and displays your current location - Adjust the transparency (opacity) of the radar or cloud cover overlays - Radar clutter filtering and smoothing - Automatic refresh when new radar or cloud cover data is available - Search for a location by zip code, city name, or address - Legend for radar and cloud cover overlays - Saves and restores your last location and zoom level Note: Radar coverage only includes the continental United States. Alaska, Hawaii, and other US controlled territories are not included. Support: Please follow our Twitter stream at for breaking news and status updates.



  • Useful

    I’ve been using this app often. It performs well for me and has helped me avoid driving in adverse weather conditions.
  • Free or paid

    By Terry.m46
    Free version is better! Just my opinion
  • Radar

    By manyfarts
    A little glitchy at times, overall effective. This has become my primary source for radar on my iPhone because of the speed the app loads.
  • There is a better radar app

    By BR HOG
    This radar is slow and the contrast isn’t up to par with some others. It looks washed out and slow compared to others that I have on my phone and iPad. I will more than likely delete this app, since it isn’t a go to app anymore.
  • Needs updated

    By dchrum
    Very good app when it works. Got this app several years ago. Have had to delete & reinstall several times recently for issues.
  • Always there when I need it!

    Perfect, accurate performance!
  • Thought it was great

    By Bee Wee
    Doesn't pick up light rain or snow. Weather Channel is the best.
  • Great weather app.

    By Shadow RS
    This is great weather app. I’ve been a pilot for over 40 years and find this weather app one of the best I’ve ever seen. Also great for figuring out what’s going to happen when you’re home. No reservations. Good stuff.
  • Maps busted for weeks, no relief!

    By FoxSpiritdude
    I had been using NOAA Pro, thee weeks ago the maps stopped loading. I paid for this one and no maps here either. They need to get a map provider and distribute an update
  • I agree with "Glitchy" (March 28, 2018)

    I too have had this app for awhile. The most recent upgrade has made it worthless. Repeatedly, I can look out my window and see it snowing or raining, and I look on the app and see nothing! Looks like there should be clear skies! I have a free app from a local NBC TV station that I have come to rely on.
