I use a weather radar app on Android. it's simple, works well, and does what I want it to do.

I'd like to have the same information available to me while on a Windows desktop or laptop. Popular weather websites obsficate their radar pages, or I can't seem to get them to work with the suite of security add-ons I have installed in my browser (blocking ads, JavaScript, cookies, etc.).

I'm looking to view the weather radar on a PC. Features I'd like to see:

  • Free or low cost (< $10)
  • 1 time fee preferred vs. recurring subscription
  • Not a UWP app
  • Set location via city or zip code
  • Pan and scan
  • Looping
  • Variable speed playback, including pause
  • Clear timestamps as the radar images progress
  • Have you tried the NOAA website? Or a local TV station website?

  • Any reason that it shall not be a UWP app? I use the builtin Windows 10 weather app, works great, looks great and is my favourite weather app. No need for third-party software here.

  • UWP requires UAC, and disabling UAC breaks UWP. I find myself rolling back "features" more often than not because to me they are bugs, not features. Mar 10, 2018 at 2:09

As far as internet weather sites, I've had the best results from Weather Underground and Accuweather sites. Both offer regional maps with animation and real time updates. I think either will fit your needs.
