Weathertron (99 cents):
The iOS app displays a live, visual minute-by-minute forecast that looks like an info graphic. Weathertron lets you scroll forward in small increments to see how the weather¿s looking two minutes from now or two hours from now. It also displays sky conditions, temperatures and associated "warnings" for extreme temperatures that may be ahead of us this summer. While most weather apps use only one forecast model, Weathertron draws from up to 16 different data sources. All of this data is statistically aggregated and weighted, so you always have the most accurate results for your location.
