Do not let the name of the free BBC Weather App fool you. Yes, it is developed by the number one UK broadcaster, so you would expect precise forecasts in-country, but it is nearly as good at providing you the latest weather info on the U.S. side of the “pond” as well as anywhere else on the globe.
After you download BBC Weather mobile app, you will enjoy its delightful look-and-feel that includes color-changing backdrops matching the weather or time of day. It only takes a glance to tell whether the weather where you are is sunny, partly cloudy, foggy, snowy, rainy or if it is day or night.

Keep a Sharp Weather Eye Out Wherever You Are
Inhabitants of the British Isles get bonus information:
• Alerts about bad weather including flood warnings
• Access to past flood warnings
• 24-hour detailed forecasting
Unfortunately, language selection is, as you might expect, strictly English but there are some third-party translated versions out there. Also, they have left out any “real feel” measurement that some other weather apps display. They believe in providing just the facts.
BBC Weather App is available for Android 4.4 and iOS devices. Oddly, even though Windows Phone is more popular in the UK than in the US, there is no such version of this app for those devices. The app is very non-intrusive. There are no ads, and they do not solicit in-app purchases or premium accounts.
The free BBC Weather App is a must-have app for Anglophiles or those who live in or plan to visit Britain. It is also a very accurate forecast app for other locations with only a few minor features left out. Of course, it also adds a little posh-ness to any mobile device. Cheers!
