Favorite Weather App

What’s your current “Go To” app for Weather both Marine and or Land? My old app (Storm) changed for the worse and I am looking for a new one. Thoughts?

We have been using windy for our underway wind predictions for 2 years in the PNW, and have found it to be very close.

I was a storm user as well - have not found a replacement.

Windy
Wind alert
Predictwind
NOAA marine weather app

Then I use the NWS website with the hourly forecast.

I use windy too but check recent accuracy between the European and north American models. Sometimes they are wildly different.
