Better weather on iPhone

As I've written here before, I'm a weather geek – born in the UK alone makes for being weather passionate but add being a pilot on top… well, you get the picture.

One of the best weather sites just got even better – surprised by some unexpected light rain today; I dialed up the Weather Underground on my iPhone to check the weather. They've added an iPhone specific formatted weather page that is accessible via http://i.wund.com which is also hyperlinked from the top of the Wunderground home page.

Check it out! It has a great summary of the weather for a specific location including current conditions, the METAR (surface observation) of the nearest airport, current NEXRAD and the 5 day forecast. Loads in about the same time as the much less useful weather information accessed from the iPhone icon for Weather.

You can access the iPhone page as a summary from a regular web browser but it's much better on the iPhone.

Excellent addition!
