* Featured in Top 10 Beach Apps by NerdWallet Travel!
***** Apr 15, 2012
Addendum: Been using it for three months now and this app worked great to flag days in winter when I could ride. Now that it's Spring, I'm going to change my settings to flag days I can't ride since most days I can. This is really a great little app and it is well engineered. I have also found it to be a great value and price for what it delivers...
Custom Weather Notifications on steroids!

WeatherPlan will monitor the weather forecasts for you!
+ Notify you about NOAA Weather Warnings

**** Love it... - Nov 28, 2011 by Kevin Owensby
I love this app! I have it set to tell me what days will be good to go jogging or mowing. I also set it up to tell me when it will be a rainy, snowy, hot, cold, or windy day. Customer service is with the creator and he's very nice and gets things worked out very quickly (minutes if possible!) I recommend it.
WEATHER SOURCE - NOAA
All our weather forecasts come from the best source, the National Weather Service's (NWS) digital forecast database from NOAA.
CUSTOM WEATHERPLANS USAGE EXAMPLE
Suppose you want to know which day the weather is perfect for a specific activity. Examples:
* The Beach:
You prefer a certain temperature interval, clear sky and no winds, set it up in WeatherPlan and wait for your perfect day at the beach!
* Freezing temperature or Snow:
Have full control which mornings you may need to remove snow or ice from the car!
* Paint your house:
You need non-precipitating weather for a few days, set it up in WeatherPlan and let the weather do your planning!
You can set a maximum or minimum for the following elements, but also combinations of them all:
- Chance of Precipitation
- Cloud cover
- Wind Speed
- Waveheight (only significant wave heights are forecasted, and only for some locations among the coasts)
Note! You will also be notified if the weather forecasts change and your WeatherPlan is no longer valid!
