The Future Weather and Lightning Alerts subscriptions are the best way to stay ahead of the weather. The NOAA Hi Def Radar app tracks all current weather data in your area and adding Future Weather expands your ability to predict future conditions more accurately up to 6-12 hours in advance. For 99¢ a month via App Store subscription, you get access to the future radar and up to 6-12 hours of forecasted radar imagery.  Lightning Alerts can also keep you updated as lightning heads near your location which is also available through an in-app subscription for 99¢ a month.

What is included in the Future Weather subscription?

    Future Radar: See radar data 6 hours into the future.

    Future Temperature: A more detailed temperature map forecasting up to 12 hours in the future.

What is included in the Lightning Alerts subscription?

    Lightning Alerts: Be notified when lightning strikes nearby.  Get a push notification whenever lightning strikes near your Saved Locations up to 10 miles away.  At this time, Current Location is not supported by Lightning Notifications. 

Why do I have to pay for additional radar data?


The new app provides additional radar data from a new source that requires maintenance and testing to stay accurate. You can still track weather without a subscription. While Future Weather and Lightning Alerts require an in-app subscription, most layers, radar imagery, and map alerts are included in the app at no additional charge. These are optional purchases and users can cancel at any time.

I purchased Future Weather and nothing changed. How can I fix this?


 Please make sure that you have "Radar-Only" selected when viewing future weather. Not every layer has future data to display so the option may appear greyed out. 


Tap the app's blue settings icon to open the Settings menu. Scroll down to see the option to 'Restore Subscriptions'. This will verify with the App Store that your subscription is active and then activate the feature. If the Future Radar toggle does not work right away, try force-quitting the app and repeating this step before contacting Support.
