Now is a good time to replace Storm, the WU app...
Weather Underground's Storm app has been my favorite weather app since it came out. Unfortunately, because the Weather Channel bought them, they are replacing that app with a completely inferior one called Storm Radar. There is not nearly as much data, the interface sucks, no front data, no wind data, etc, etc. I could complain all day. Due to this, I have discovered Windy, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the app will eventually be a solid replacement for Storm. Such things as having multiple layers of data—for instance fronts, wind, and radar—don't exist on other apps besides Storm... yet.
Please work to make a replacement for Storm, and let us all punish the Weather Channel until the end of time!
@meltcow I meant that you cannot have fronts, wind, and radar data display simultaneously in any other app. They had a great, perfect UI, as well... Its such a shame to see the ONE friggin app on a phone that I really love be phased out and replaced with B$ by tacky losers... So upsetting!
AGREE with you 100%. The new Storm app is HORRIBLE. I am so very disappointed, because I have depending on layering the maps when we are traveling in our motorhome. If it hadn’t been for the ability to layer, see wind directions, storm cones, etc., I would not have known that we were sitting in the path of a tornado in our motorhome! I need the kind of capability Storm used to provide, and I am deleting the new, useless app.
It seems that I am not the only one .Also very disappointed about the new app ,if someone knows a good one that could replace storm radar .PLEASE let us know . A good app like STORM shouldn’t disappear like that.

I know it's been a while, but could not agree more.
Storm was my go to app for simple weather. TWC ruined it. Still today, after lots fo feedback and many updates, it is still inferior to the original product.
I would love for Windy to make their own version of what WU had done with Storm as an "essentials" alternative.
I love what you can do with Windy. I would change very little of it.
For for routine WX checks, a Storm alternative would rock...
I still have screenshots! ;)
@ferhawk @meltcow @Quint41 @bringbackstrom Hi all, thank you for your suggestions, we will consider them. Just one thing, fronts are drawn by meteorologists, they are not included in any weather model, that is why we do not display them. More info about fronts on Windy - https://community.windy.com/topic/13381/fronts?_=1599201688226
