WICS WX app review: dedicated weather forecasting for residents of Springfield, Illinois-2021



If you should happen to live in or are visiting Springfield, Illinois, then this is one weather app that you’re definitely going to want to keep handy on your iPhone and iPad as it provides up to 10 days’ worth of advance weather forecasting for the region across a variety of formats and levels of detail.

This is a fairly run-of-the-mill storm app, and what it lacks in originality I think it more than makes up for in consistency. Time and time again, the same style of weather app seems to prevail, and there is definitely a good reason for this.

WICS WX features a simple yet effective interface design with plenty of reliable content to keep you one step ahead of the weatherman every single day of the week, so be sure to check it out today if you’re a Springfield local.

WICS WX storm alerts app runs on devices with iOS 12.0 or later with support of up to iOS 14.0 and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It will need 124.2 MB of free memory space on your mobile device to download and install.  When done with our WICS app review, head on over to our best weather apps list for more options.



Dedicated Weather Forecasting for Springfield, Illinois

The first thing you’ll see upon first starting up WICS WX is the Map section, which also doubles up rather conveniently as the home screen of this app, providing a brief rundown of the current temperature, humidity, and wind speed and direction.

The main purpose of the Map section is to display live radar map imagery that you can use to track the past and future movement of rain, snow, and various other weather fronts as they make their way across your area.

This screen also shows a snapshot view of what kind of conditions are predicted for tomorrow, so you could quite as well use just the Map section and not even have to venture elsewhere within the app!

If, on the other hand, you need some more detail, or you want a longer-term outlook, then I’d suggest checking out the Hourly and 10 Day sections. In here you’ll find predictions for everything from changes in high and low temperatures to visibility, UV Index, and even evening weather forecasts.

The Alerts section is also going to be an important for feature for some as it enables you to set up Push notifications that will inform you of any storms, hurricanes, and other severe weather conditions which might be headed in your general direction.
