Get live doppler radar maps on your iPhone


iweathr.jpgMacenstein found a great website for iPhones that allows you to view live doppler radar maps from Weather.com. Very sweet. The site: iWeathr.com (there’s no “e”)…but don’t bother trying to view the site unless if you have an iPhone because the site is designed only for iPhones.

After you choose a city, iWeathr loads the latest doppler radar maps from Weather.com and plays those images in a loop (just like Weather.com does).

I accessed the site via EDGE and it can take 20 – 60 seconds for the maps to load but it’s worth it. So, if you have an iPhone, give it a try!

    Seems to work. The radar maps are not from Weather.com. They are from NOAA and load in a couple of seconds. Still looking for other sites with radar loops. Can’t get the loops to work going to wunderground or directly to NOAA

    Yeah, they changed it from Weather.com to NOAA a little while ago.

    The only thing I’ve seen that has animated radar maps is the “Who’s Hot” iPhone application.

    all it does when I visit the site is tell me page not found and redirects me back to the list of locations? I am using wifi to view.
