aug0211 I use "RainAlert" on my iPhone.... it gives push updates for rain notifications.

You set a radius (I have mine on the lowest setting, 11 miles or 22 miles (can't remember, too lazy to check - sorry)), and you get push alerts when it rains in your radius.

It gives you two precentages: strength (how hard is it raining?) and area (what area of your radius is it raining in?)

No - this doesn't guarantee that you're going to get rain when you get an alert - but it DOES stop you from always having to check the weather. If it's going to rain, you'll get an alert. Sometimes, you'll get an alert and it doesn't rain, but rarely (never?) does it work in the opposite.

At the very minimum, this can alert you to go check your weather app or a radar, etc., to see if your area is going to get hit with rain.

Push alerts > Poll (manually checking on your own) IMHO

PeteQuad My Dad's big toe is the best bet. He always used to say it ached when it was going to rain.

Megafriday I've heard rendered bear fat in a mason jar can serve as a barometer. Old school.

live_slow another thing to look for is apps that give you the forecast "confidence" level

that's missing from most of them, but when you read it (on a service or in the NOAA text) you know if they are iffy on their own estimation.

panthermark On my phone I have Accuweather,, and NOAA.

Combined they are 80% accurate 50% of the time...

Bro you should know considering you live in my area of SOFLA we have a ton rain til almost the second week of november due to hurricane season...

best thing to do like others have said check your app frequently on your phone. they aren't always right but they are somewhat accurate. also check the local news forecasts more frequently.

Bad_Dog In my 2013 430N Radio, I have a free year subscription to TravelLink from SiriusXM. One of the features is weather. I thought that was a nice touch to get weather updates from within the Wrangler.

thinkxingu I use the KNOE app- my buddy runs the systems and they're very, very accurate.

live_slow Use a good weather app on your phone. Not a free one. I use eWeatherHD. I check it often enough when top and doors are at home. Others do have alerts down to zip-code level for rain.

Bottom line though, weather is hard to call where I live (TN Valley) so if my app or WeatherUnderground says 30% chance of T-Storm or greater, I leave the top and doors on or set up the trail cover when I get to work.

Pretty much anyone in the coastal south and Florida can count on pop-up t-storms any given week all summer long unless locked in a drought. That's like the baseline forecast from H-Town all the way around you and back up to DC. :-)

woansleftpeg Your best bet is probably to give me a call whenever you want to know what the weather is going to do. If I've got my roof and doors off, it's going to rain very shortly. Guaranteed.

DaCrazyRN You mean like a barometer…or actually looking at what is happening outside? That's called research and reading, or someone to teach you. ABle to read what is going on around you, much easier to "predict" what is coming
