Laugh-out-loud weather app gives it to you straight!

By Tony Barthel
Last week I wrote about one of the more useful weather apps you can get. But this week I want to talk something goofy. And, for those of you who might be offended by the use of words your mom told you not to say, this may not be the app for you.

Still here? Okay, let’s move on.

Another NSFW weather app

My wife has a weather app installed on her phone called “What the Forecast?!!” and while it isn’t nearly as useful as last week’s NOAA weather app, it’s significantly more entertaining. The app allows you to see what’s happening outside your own window but with snarky and often NSFW (Not Safe For Work) descriptions of said weather.

What The Forecast?!! won a 2018 People’s Choice Webby Award in the category of Mobile Sites & Apps – Services & Utilities.

Surprisingly, there are more than 9,607 obnoxious phrases describing the current weather conditions. You can also enable or disable the profanity and even listen to the latest weather in different voices.

The weather predictions are accurate, as data is culled from AerisWeather. You can get daily weather or forecasts for up to ten days and hourly forecasts for up to 48 hours. There are also weather alerts from NOAA.

Air quality, arthritis, migraine, sinus, cold/flu and bee indexes are available too. This app is really a fun way to be informed, and you can share the forecasts via the usual iPhone sharing functionality but, be careful. There are just some screens on this you won’t want to share with your mom. Or, if she’s the cool mom, maybe you will.

Provided you have good cell coverage, weather apps can be a lifesaver. But, as RVers, we are often in places where the Wi-Fi is lousy or nonexistent. In those cases, weather radios are your best first line of defense.

Download What The Forecast?!! from Apple and Google Play.

I enjoy fiction. My current favorite fiction is the SailFlow app, wind projections for sailing, etc.

Those of us up here in New England get a chuckle out of The Hillbilly Weatherman. You can find him on YouTube. For all of those of you are are PC Mambie Pambies, this will just “offend” your auditory senses.

Really? This app won an award? For stupidity I would guess. I had thought the Webby Awards were meaningful… no longer I see. :-/
But why would someone want an app to be disrespectful to themself? After this article, I do not want to see any of my comments purged for being ‘harsh’… Scheeesch, get a real life people.

No one forced you to read, just sayin’.
