I never use apple weather on the phone. The few times I tried, I recoiled in horror from the execrable radar. 90% of the time for 9-10 months a year, radar is all I need, since the Puget lowlands are mostly pretty consistent in broad outline despite hundreds of microclimates.
I do keep part of an eye on the temperature forecast, but only from NWS on mac or ipad (I’m calibrated to NWS quirks for the area) and my own outside thermometer.
I rarely want to look at weather at all on the phone because I have macs, ipads, and a watch. The main exception is radar, for which I use the excellent Radarscope. In smoky times like the last couple of days, Local Haze is faster loading and easier to read than the regular smoke maps if I’m not at a computer. Unfortunately there’s no watch app.
On the watch I use the radarscope complication and a data bar from snowflake, configured to show me wind, humidity and dew point in the text line. I’ve tried using the Apple complication for AQI, but it’s often absurdly wrong.
On the mac I keep a window open with various weather tabs. Most used is a very local (UW) three day history multi-graph which wouldn’t do most people any good, and some NWS tabs such as the local forecast, hourly graph, and satellite water vapor. I used to keep a tab with the local NWS Ex-Twitter feed via nitter.net, but nitter is dead now.
In summer there’s another window with assorted fire and smoke information, and I sometimes use windy.com if there’s anything interesting coming such as an atmospheric river or a wind storm.
On an iPad I occasionally use Seasonality Go. It uses public data sources, lets me configure almost anything as graphs, goes a week or so back and forth in time, and it’s radar is fine. You can set up any number of configurations and locations.
Major weather alerts come to my RSS feed and mailbox via the county emergency alert service.
