Best Weather Apps/Sites

What are the best weather apps/sites out there for the Alps (and US)? When I went to Warth over Xmas both Apple and Dark Sky turned out to junk, any good alternatives?

Depends where you are. Anything that claims to be global is probably junk. In Switzerland the MeteoSwiss app is pretty accurate. Other countries will have their own I guess.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Bergfex snow forecasts are very optimistic.

How much optimistic? So much that they're worthless?

@südtirolistdeutsch,
In my experience when they forecast snow next week it only happens about 50% of the time, and you only get half of what is forecast. If they forecast snow tomorrow it will happen, just not as much as they say. So not dissimilar to any optimistic weather forecast really. Still there is plenty of other useful stuff on the site.

+1 for MeteoSwiss in Switzerland: This is configurable in terms of preferred locations and you can set automated alerts based on different criteria. The rainfall animation gives a good picture of current conditions and up to 48 hrs ahead.



and MeteoFrance in France. Like the Met Office, these are the organisations that collect the base data anyway, so I think it's worth going to the original provider. Everyone else is just getting fed the same info.

Meteo France app also gives you the official daily avalanche risk charts and narrative, area by area.

They're all pointless more than 3 days out

I find wepowder superb, and he only commits to specifics about 3 days out. He interprets the data and combines it with local knowledge of resorts and micro weather conditions particular to regions and valleys, and in my experience has been uncannily accurate, whereas the other sites just puke out the models, not to say that can't be reasonably accurate
