    With our polar vortex upon us, I became curious, what is the best weather app for a Expediter?

    I’ve used Apple Weather, but it’s a pain looking up a destination weather forecast.

      I like the Accuweather app. Just enter a city or zip code for a weather report and forcast.

      I think it was Weather Route Free for Android - very useful for snowbelt

      I like Weather Underground for Android (not sure if there is an Apple version). I like that the weather map is right there. Also, you can add favourites and it is easy to see the weather for your current location.

      Most weather apps are for regular folks who need to know what their commute will be like tomorrow morning. I’ve even seen “hyperlocal” forecasts for people who need to know block by block what’s going on.

      Trying to figure out how the weather will be a thousand miles away is a bit of work

      Not really. My Accuweather app will give you the forcast as issued by the national weather service based on zip code.
