I wonder whether similar methods could be used for temperature drops, or wind changes, when a front is coming in. Both pieces of data can be sourced from nearby weather stations, and it's more predictable even over a 4 hour period.
In some ways this is a "warning" app. So high winds, temperature change, rain - and localised BOM warnings too - seem part of it.

I’m not sure what value that would provide, it already has rain warnings, the only other one would be high wind warnings, but once you are getting into that territory there is often a rain front associated with the high winds anyway.
I think it would be great if you added a UV index to the weather page. ☀️☀️☀️3 votes
It does not appear that I get the data for this from the BoM so I don’t think it is possible at this stage.
Hail alert would be a great feature if possible.4 votes
I’m not sure it is possible to differentiate between very heavy rain and hail, but this is the key – it if says very heavy rain then there is a good likelihood of there being hail too.
Just wondering whether you have considered adding support for the Pebble Time smartwatch. I believe that timeline integration with an app like this would be amazing.6 votes
If someone is willing to donate me a pebble then I’ll consider adding it. I have already built it for the Apple Watch though. I am also a little concerned how it would work, it may take some major rework of the API.
It's pretty good at the moment but it could be made more compatible with VoiceOver.1 vote
I’m going to close this – I really don’t know how I would make the radar more accessible. The app forecast is already about as good as I can get it – the bit that says ‘Light rain in 10 minutes increasing to heavy rain in 20 minutes’ is very descriptive of what the radar is showing.
I’m not sure what this is asking, but you can view other radars by using the magnifying icon on the radar page.
Would be nice to have a badge on the app icon showing the current temperature.3 votes
The badge currently updates to show the maximum incoming rain intensity, and I don’t think this would be consistent with showing the current temperature.
