Apps and streaming services to help you keep track of the snow this year

I think we can all admit that 2020 has been a crazy year in the United States and some states across the country have already been seeing snow.

We’re still pretty early into the fall season, but since we have already had big lumps of snow fall this year, including Texline, Texas, that received about 10 inches of snow overnight on Tuesday, October 27.

With that said, here are some apps that can help you follow the snowstorms and blizzards that are sure to come this year and in 2021.


  • CARROT Weather: The app’s first tier starts at $4.99 a year ($0.99 a month) and includes features such as real-time precipitation alerts, an Apple Watch complication, support for iOS 14 widgets, multiple data sources and other custom notifications as well. It is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV, Apple Watch and Mac.


  • Dark Sky: This app was purchased by Apple earlier this year and provides a lot of what CARROT Weather has in its app, but only has the one-time purchase for the app, which is just $3.99 in the App Store. It is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Apple Watch, with additional browser support for Mac usage.


  • NOAA Weather Radar Live: For starters, this is a free app and has just about everything that one would need and get for free. This includes a clean radar, accurate weather information and data from The National Weather Service, notifications for severe weather and iOS 14 widgets. It can be used on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Apple Watch.


Streaming services:

  • Frndly TV: For just $5.99 a month, you can get a livestream on The Weather Channel, which showcases what the weather could be like in your neck of the woods, as well as what it is like for others across the country.


  • Weather Nation: Pluto TV is going to be the best place to stream this channel. Best of all, you can do so for free. The channel is quite similar to The Weather Channel, but is merely a free alternative to it. Pluto TV is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.


  • Locast: For streaming your local TV stations, outside of a live TV streaming service like Hulu with Live TV or YouTube TV that provide most of them, Locast does it and does so for free. However, it is only in select TV markets at this time. The good news is it can be streamed on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.

Current TV markets Locast is available in.
