Rain Check

An App for Negotiating the Rainy Season

B28e9a7d97724ccbc65f3c5afc7993bdWe’ve seen the future...

And there’s a 60% chance of rain at some point really soon.

It’s hard to pinpoint the exact second when, though.

That’s why this exists.

Walk between the drops with RainAware, a new app that’ll predict the precipitation potential for up to three hours out, available now for iPhone.

Well, it’s almost May. Which means we’re about to head into that crazy season where it seems to rain on and off without warning for a few weeks straight. Yeah, it’s pretty annoying. Point being, you could use something that prophesies the weather. Accurately. And down to the second. So... here you go.

Now, anytime you’re going to be somewhere where you think rain could be an issue (Dolphins game, patio julep party, Mogwai convention), you’ll pull up this app on your phone and check the three-hour forecast. Oh, look, there’s a thunderstorm happening between 2:26:11pm and 2:37:12pm. That’s good to know.

It’s not just local weather either. You’ll be able to get real-time, up-to-the-second rain conditions simultaneously for anywhere in the world.

Maybe don’t go to Paris in the next three hours.
