As the seasons change, the weather becomes exceedingly unpredictable. One day it may be sunny and 80 degrees and the next day it is raining and bitterly cold. Because of this, people are looking for ways to stay up to date with the changing weather. One way to do this is through the use of weather apps. Many exist that can be downloaded to a tablet or smartphone, allowing users to know what the weather is like before they even go outside.
Check out some of our favorites below and be ready whenever a storm decides to hit.
