This utility was developed by a television station KATC based in Lafayette, Louisiana. Users can find detailed information about current weather in the south of the United States. Using this app is pretty straightforward thanks to its simple yet functional interface.
The main screen shows the most essential information. Here users may find cloudiness, current temperature in Fahrenheit, relative humidity, dew point, wind and sunset time. Another tab displays the detailed hourly forecast for today.
The information about the weather in the next few days is also offered by the service. While not always accurate, this data can still help you to plan a trip or get ready for a hurricane. To get a better result, it is not a bad idea to compare predictions from several sources. For example, you may also refer to the CARROT Weather app.
One of the most interesting functions is what the developers call the Radar. It is basically a map with the current situation drawn upon it, just like you can see on television. Colored areas mark various types of precipitation like rain or snow.
