Winter can bring unexpected weather and frigid temperatures. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just stay inside until spring? Since we can’t hibernate, we can at least have a few apps that can make winter a little easier. From predicting the weather or keeping an eye on road conditions, consider these apps key to your weather survival.
Weatherbug – There are a lot of weather apps that you can download, but users agree, Weatherbug is among the best and most reliable. From tracking severe weather conditions, checking in on specific storms, showing radar maps for current conditions in your area and other areas you need to track, and providing detailed forecasts for the next couple of hours, Weatherbug can help you plan your day so you know how to dress and what to expect when you hit the roads.
Waze – If you are traveling and bad weather hits, you will want Waze and its community users to tell you what the roads are like ahead. Waze is great at giving up to the minute directions, road conditions, and can give you alternate routes if there are hazards ahead. If this is an app you use when you travel, you’ll want to use it in the winter for your regular commute as well.
