“Know Before” is the tag line for Weather Bug” and it seems to square nicely with the scout motto of “Be Prepared.” In addition to the current weather, hourly forecast and 10 day forecast, WeatherBug has a map with 18 layers of weather data. Layers include things like radar, alerts, precipitation, temperature, wind speed and pressure.
Wind speed was especially useful on a recent Webelos Woodsmoke camp out where sudden winds of 20 MPH motivated us to take down pop up canopies and garages before they started to be hurled around like sails attached to metal.
There are a lot of weather apps out there – each with something they do best. WeatherBug does maps best.
WeatherBug is available on iOS, Android, Windows and Mac.
