We do love our weather apps. A search on the Google Play Store turns up more than a thousand apps and the Apple App Store contains 4,325 weather apps. Joining that crowd of apps is Nooly an app its developer claims is capable of predicting accurate weather forcasts, specifically the exact minute it will rain or snow.
The latest addition to a growing group of micro-forecasters, Nooly Technologies Ltd claims its app is the world most accurate Short-range Weather App that predicts the Exact Time Rain will Start and end (5 Minute Accuracy) for every neighborhood / road or district in the Continental US and southern Canada. The app covers more than 30 million different locations within a 0.4 square mile radius and can predict when light rain will become a thunderstorm, when snow will fall and when ice rain will end up at your doorstep. How do they do it? Check this video:
I have been testing Nooly for a few weeks now and have been surprised at the accuracy. It has been right more often that not plus or minus 5 minutes or so. I found the map function helpful especially when planning a trip to a park, outdoor event of ski hill, Nooly can tell you when it will rain, snow or something else
Now, for those times Nooly gets it wrong the developer offers this disclaimer:
When using the app remember; it is a work in progress and you are one of the first in the world to experience such accurate forecast. Mistake in the predictions may happen, please update us exactly where, when and how our prediction where not accurate. We will appreciate any suggestions, improvements or even feature you would like to see in future versions. We will do our best to address your requests and we thank you for your valuable feedback.
Nooly is fun and it is free although the developer plans to turn it into a paid app in the future. It is a worthwhile addition to your smartphone, get it at the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. Let me know how well it works in your neighbourhood.
