Throughout much of the United States, summer weather has been hot and miserable thus far. The free Weather Channel app is a great way to keep up with the latest heat warnings and other weather-related alerts. Dry your sweaty fingers and scroll through the 10-day forecast for your area, or check the weather for a city you're visiting. The app's radar maps also show various points of interest, including parks, golf courses, and (yes!) lakes. Weather nerds will enjoy perusing the selection of map layers, which show clouds, rain, and other weather phenomena.
Another free app worth checking out is Apalon's Weather Live, which has a beautiful interface as well as detailed forecasts and related weather factoids.
