This will go a long way in ensuring that severe weather conditions never find you unprepared. Another major benefit of using this application is that it provides satellite and radar overlays that you can use to know the specific weather conditions in various parts of the world. Some of the weather details that you can get from the images include rainfall, cloud cover, snow, and mixed precipitation.

In addition, you can bookmark some of the cities for future reference. There are three different types of background maps that are used to display the data, namely satellite, hybrid, and standard.
