The deep, detailed meteorological reasoning behind your local weather forecast, straight from the experts at NOAA/NWS.
Deep Weather automatically compiles an easy-to-read version of the most recent National Weather Service Forecast Discussion, advisories and warnings for your location. Just launch the app, and it takes care of everything for you.
The National Weather Service Forecast Discussions provide detailed information and background about the weather patterns and observations that are part of the most recent forecast model. They represent the "Story behind the weather story," a glimpse behind the scenes of your current forecast, and provide lots of detail not found anywhere else.
Use the map view to select any National Weather Service Forecast Office and receive the latest forecast discussion for that area.
The discussion is broken up into sections for you, and the text itself formatted in a much more easily read format than the raw original.
These discussions are amended and updated several times per day, so you can follow how the weather forecast is changing in real time, as well as gain a deeper understanding of the thought that goes into forming the forecast.
Note: The Forecast discussion text from the National Weather Service is often abbreviated, and is usually in all capital letters. While we do what we can to improve the format of the raw text, we don't modify the original text. Once you've followed your local forecasters for a while, their shorthand will become second nature to you.
