NOAA Hi-Def Radar weather app is now available for Windows 8.1. The official radar app from WeatherSphere was released on Windows Phone just last week. Today's release for Windows 8.1 brings the powerful and beautiful app to a bigger screen.
NOAA Hi-Def Radar pulls data from NOAA. As you may or may not know, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a scientific agency with the U.S. government. Therefore, this app is only useful for those in the US, including all 50 states and territories including Puerto Rico and Guam.
Here's what you get with NOAA Hi-Def Radar for Windows 8.1:
- Sharp images
- Choose between Radar layer for rain or Cloud Coverage layer.
- Check the current weather + forecast for any point on the map

First impressions of NOAA Hi-Def Radar on Windows 8.1 are, like the Windows Phone version, positive. And if you were one of those who picked up the app on Windows Phone you'll be happy to learn that you already own it for Windows 8.1. This is one of those universal Windows apps that you buy once and can use on phone, tablet or PC.
An app like NOAA Hi-Def Radar becomes incredibly useful if you live in an area where the weather changes on a somewhat frequent basis. The high definition radar weather images are delivered to your Surface in real-time.
