RadarScope download

RadarScope is a specialized display utility for weather enthusiasts and meteorologists that allows you view NEXRAD Level 3 and Super-Resolution radar data along with Tornado, Severe Thunderstorm, Flash Flood and Special Marine Warnings, and predicted storm tracks issued by the US National Weather Service. It can display the latest reflectivity, velocity, dual-polarization, and other products from any NEXRAD or TDWR radar site in the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, Korea, and Okinawa, as well as reflectivity and velocity data from Environment Canada radars. These aren't smoothed PNG or GIF images, this is native radar data rendered in its original radial format for a high level of detail.

Whether you are scanning reflectivity for a mesocyclone's tell-tale hook echo, trying to pinpoint the landfall of a hurricane's eye wall, or looking for small features like velocity couplets in the storm relative radial velocity product, RadarScope gives you the power to view true radial NEXRAD weather radar on your iOS device and Apple Watch.

When there are any Tornado Warnings (outlined in RED), Severe Thunderstorm Warnings (YELLOW polygons), Flash Flood Warnings (GREEN polygons), or Special Marine Warnings (ORANGE polygons) in effect throughout the US, tap the warning button in the top right corner to browse the list of current warnings, view the details, and even zoom to the selected warning on the map.

Pinch or stretch to zoom in and out. Drag your finger around the map to scroll. Tap the radar sweep button in the toolbar to switch radars. Select one of the 156 different NEXRAD radar sites and 45 Terminal Doppler radars in the US, 30 other radar sites in Canada, and 2 in the Republic of Korea. Plot your current location by tapping the location button and optionally report it to the Spotter Network. Tap the play button to download and animate over recent images. Display the names of over 25,000 cities and towns on the map as you zoom and scroll. Tap and hold the color legend to see the data values.

Meanwhile, RadarScope will retrieve and display updated data automatically and intelligently (approximately every 2 to 10 minutes, depending on the radar scan strategy).

You can display data from NOAA's public access web site, our optional WDT feed (the default), or your AllisonHouse subscriber account. Spotter Network members can report their location and view the locations of other spotters.

The RadarScope Pro subscription is an optional auto-renewing subscription with two different tiers to choose from. Super-res products are still available to all RadarScope users without purchasing a subscription.

RadarScope Pro Tier 1 is an annual subscription that provides access to real-time lightning data that animates along with the radar loop and up to 30 frames of radar data, including extended loops of Super-Res Level 2 data. Tier 1 subscribers can also access a data interrogation tool to quickly determine data values for specific radar pixels and an optional dual-pane mode for viewing two radar products side-by-side.

RadarScope Pro Tier 2 is an annual or monthly subscription that combines all the features in Tier 1 with more advanced features, including SPC outlooks, local storm reports, a 30-day archive of all radar products, estimated hail size contours, rotation (azimuthal shear) contours, and the ability to use subscription features across multiple platforms.

RadarScope Pro subscriptions are charged to your App Store account. It will be auto-renewed within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period at the same price you originally paid. Subscriptions may be managed and auto-renewal disabled via your iTunes Account Settings after the purchase. Once purchased, the subscription cannot be cancelled during the active subscription period.

Awesome  weathermanK  5 star

I believe this is the best radar app that a intermediate to expert weather radar that you can get. Because I am a part time storm chaser this app has helped me to hunt down tornados and avoid the hail core. This is definitely worth the price and i wound get the pro version if your a storm chaser. DON’T believe the negative reviews there just kids that don’t know how to function and real radar.

Accurate and detailed weather radar that is inflated severity wise. Also, it’s on my wrist whenever I need it too!


Best radar on mobile  MrDylanYeet3000  5 star

Very clear NEXRAD level 3 radar for spotters and trackers. If you are a weather geek this is app for u. The velocity and distance tool are my favorite features. Very worth 10$ very professional, very cool, very awesome and most of all very easy. 👌

Simply the best!!! There is no competition.


One of the best products out there!  AaronMason47  5 star

I’ve been using this for a couple years now, and I have a Pro Tier One subscription. Easily the best $10 a year I spend, as it provides me with several different products to keep me on top of unfolding weather events, with an easy to understand user interface. I also have the same product for Windows, and I couldn’t be happier with it. Trusted by storm chasers, trusted by me, and should be trusted by you.


Not Worth It  CJC0201  2 star

There’s other radar-capable weather sites and apps, out there, that show at least as much detail and features as this app does, and they’re free ... Save your $$ ...


Great on AppleTV!  seapickle63  5 star

🤪😦🤓🧐I settled on the $10 WEATHERBUG APP. It's easier to understand. It'd be good if we could sample this app for 10 mins. before purchasing. That would save slot of time..


Does as advertised  1stimpact  5 star

No complaints on my end. This is for advanced users and for anyone complaining about what the app does or doesn’t do, aren’t experienced enough to appreciate this on the fly system. If you’re complaining that it doesn’t show a nationwide map to view entire systems you’re not using the app for its intended purpose. When chasing or spotting this app will allow you to focus on an area of concern without a spliced image of the radar. It’ll also allow you to input addresses has the tools necessary to spot a storm quickly and efficiently. The only issue I’ve had isn’t something that I can blame on the app as much as I can my service provider is refresh time. Otherwise this app is money well spent for people who use phones and tablets while spotting/chasing.


Without a doubt, the best radar app out there.  MattSandy34  5 star

A warning to anyone downloading this app: this is for weather nerds only. If you download this app, keep in mind that it doesn’t stitch radars or sugarcoat the info, it’s the raw data from the radar. But, for weather nerds and meteorologists, it’s the best radar app out there. You can use it on-air, and you can easily track storms with your own data. I love this app so much, I actually bought their t-shirt.
