Deep Weather provides a deeper understanding of your weather forecast than most weather apps.
Deep Weather grew out of a desire to provide easy access to some of the most detailed, high-quality and high-value weather sources that are usually overlooked by other weather apps. While many weather sources will tell you the general gist of what the weather is expected to do, Deep Weather provides the detailed meteorological reasoning behind that forecast, along with the various factors that are likely to influence it, as well as potentially change where the forecast goes.
As you launch the app, Deep Weather automatically compiles an easy-to-read version of the most recent National Weather Service Area Forecast Discussion, advisories and warnings for your location.
The NOAA / NWS Forecast Discussions, also known as the AFD, are detailed text discussions about the current local weather forecast, straight from the experts at NOAA/NWS. The forecast discussion provides a detailed insight into the thinking of your local NOAA meteorologists, and gives you the "why" as well as the "what" of your local forecast.

When you want a deeper understanding of the weather patterns around you that are affecting your forecast, the NOAA Weather Forecast Discussions or AFDs are an invaluable tool. It's the next best thing to having an in-person conversation with a NOAA meterologist.
To help provide a more visual picture, Deep Weather also provides easy access to a curated list of the most up-to-date weather graphics: National Forecast Chart, Surface Analysis, IR Satellite, Current Radar, Pacific and Atlantic Ocean surface analysis, 500mb graphical forecasts and more.
Deep Weather provides great value in helping you anticipate and adjust to changes in the weather that you might not have been aware of if limited to other weather sources. By understanding the factors and assumptions that are part of the official forecast and how changes in those factors could affect the outcome, you are armed with a much deeper and more flexible understanding of the weather around you. This is highly valuable in aviation, sailing, long distance hiking and any other outdoor endeavor where changes in the weather can have great impact.
