This weather app and widget are able to warn you against precipitation (like rain or snow) by an alarm. You can watch what is coming by the up-to-date radar animation. Even more convenient, the supplied widgets can help you monitor the precipitation situation without any alarms.
Useful assistant for everything outdoors like cycling, biking or hiking.
