Summary:

Weather is really important to us, and so is the weather forecast. If you are planning to go for picnic, kid’s summer camp, weekend holiday trip, tour or business meeting, it is necessary to have weather details of that particular day. This can save you from natural phenomenons such as rain, hails, snowfall, storm etc.

Mac store is flooded with many great Weather forecasting apps. These apps provide all the necessary information about current weather including temperature, wind speed, humidity, rain, precipitation, sunset -sunrise and much more. I have recently tried one of the apps called The Weather Channel App on my iPhone when I had to plan a trip and I was really uncertain about the weather.
