Bright Weather

Bright Weather is a visually appealing Windows Phone 8 weather app that delivers everything from the current weather conditions to a five day forecast to moon phases to your Windows Phone.

Bright Weather was updated the other day to bring a handful of new features to the party that includes lockscreen support and a free trial mode.  We were rather impressed with the Windows Phone 8 weather app and the updated version simply adds to Bright Weather's appeal.

What is it, weather week around here? That’s what a few of you may be asking yourselves but hey, we don’t plan these things, we just report on ‘em. Yes, another new weather app has gone live in the Store this week with the name Bright Weather by LevelUp Studio. While not a game changer, we are really liking the doublewide Tile that you see in our lead image and it’s worth taking a look.

Bright Weather offers a few unique things that make it worth your consideration, including pulling data from Accuweather. That’s a good thing as we tend to find Accuweather’s data quite reliable (though you may disagree) and it means we get access to their patented “RealFeel” temperature, which takes into account humidity and other factors for a more realistic current conditions reading.
