The #1 most up to date NOAA radar display possible!

Use RadarNow! to quickly see an animated radar image and current conditions! No digging through menus to see if a storm is on the way!

RadarNow! provides National Weather Service (NWS) Enhanced Radar "Base" (N0R) images from the NOAA WSR-88D NEXRAD Radar sites located around the US. Radar images are downloaded directly from NWS servers so are always the most current available. When you start the app, the radar images are from the site closest to your location.

New Clutter suppression feature added in version 6.3!

Now on iTunes! Get RadarNow! for your iPad and iPhone.

NWS Alerts included with the free mode starting in v4.0. Only alerts issued to the your current county are sent and the alerts can be filtered so only the ones that interest you are used.

RadarNow! is a free download with access to Premium features. Use the FREE Standard version to monitor your local radar and receive NWS Alerts or choose to upgrade through the app to Premium if you want to activate the enhanced features. You may try the premium features with our free 5 day trial or purchase premium access for $5.99 for a "RadarNow! Lifetime" pass.

The 5 day free trial gives you free access to the premium features. Once the 5 day trial has passed, the app reverts back to the free "standard" mode. You will not be charged to use the free trial under any circumstances.

RadarNow! is designed to be fast, efficient and have great free options. If you want a full featured weather app that shows things like ski conditions or tide reports, we suggest using WeatherBug or Weather Channel. RadarNow! Standard (Free) provides animated radar, local conditions and NWS Alerts centered on your current location. Radar Now! Premium provides more zoom levels, range rings, selectable locations and a pannable map of the continental US with a looping weather radar.

RadarNow! uses US radars only, therefore is active for entire U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and areas of Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean that border the U.S. New! Canadian radars are now in experimental mode.

RadarNow! uses encrypted Google account data to track premium users and to check to see if a free user has a premium upgrade. We encrypt this data with an MD5 encryption algorithm on the device and have no way to decrypt that information to discover the original Google account. We do not keep any personal information on our servers. If you choose to contact us by email, we will delete that email as soon as the conversation is concluded. Please read our complete privacy policy which is linked in our Google Play Store listing for more details on what information we collect and how we use it. RadarNow! uses obfuscated location data to determine the US county the device is currently in. This information is transmitted with the Google Cloud Messaging data and does not identify you personally in any way. You may opt out of this data transmission by selecting to not receive alerts. See the help text inside of RadarNow! for the instructions on how to accomplish this opt out.

    People in Florida really need to know what's going on with this hurricane including myself in Tampa. At the expense of us this app just put a large blob of storm all over Florida. This simply isn't true. There are other better apps that show what's actually going on with Hurricane Irma. These guys here are just trying to overdramatize the storm. Full Review

    Days on end with no local service is unacceptable. Pop up messages telling me to try a radar station in Ft Lauderdale, Key West or Tallahassee don't cut it for Tampa's weather. Please fix! Full Review

    Why didn't Radar Now leave the smaller diameter for radar rain/snow detection? From the next to the smallest Circle, dropping down to the smaller Circle there is no Circle. Full Review

    Look no more for weather radar app with all u need, nothing you don't. Yiu can OPT OUT of ads! Wastes no resources on pretty graphics, fx, or hype. Spent my couple bucks to save my fave radar or wx station across USA & got a heap o' customization too. Thorough Help in app; EZ-2-contact developer when u just can't work it out. PLS NOTE: For serious radar users. Not for newbies to radar-only, nor for those needing a quickie 5-day forecast à la Weatherbug. Full Review

    Used to love this, still like it a lot. Usually we don't get a lot of sleet, freezing rain and snow. So after a few years, just noticed it doesn't color code for sleet, freezing rain or snow. All same color, whether rain or anything else Full Review

    Would be 5 star radar app if it didn't show as much "clutter" even with the clutter button on. You have to click on a different weather station to look at current location to check if it's light rain or clutter. Full Review

    Really like the app for location, alerts, and weather station outage reports. I highly recommend this app, but would like devops team to be more transparent about ratings. See below. For that reason, can only give a 4. Will use in-app link for any requests. Not pleased that devops team says, anything less than 5☆ just brings the overall ranking down as a means to discourage honest reviews. Also devops requests in latest update that any potentially negative feedback or issues only be sent via contact link provided in app. Convenience is one thing; attempting to artificially inflate ratings is another.

    Loads in a brief amount of time which is wonderful when I need to quick check on the whereabouts of storm clouds because I do much outdoor activities in daytime and Astronomy at night. Dopplar shows cloud movement & locations with pleasing accuracy. I had three different weather apps, but when I tried this one I now happily only use this one !! BRAVO NOAA !! Way to go !! 😃👍💘🖖 Full Review
