No problem with the standard Touch Wiz's AccuWeather.


Yup, i second that, pleasing to the eye and pretty accurate.  Being free helps as well.


For a rain forecast I use aix weather widget https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.veierland.aix which gets its data from various meteorological satellites in near real-time.  It seems to be very accurate, more so than accuweather in fact.

I also have a soft spot for the official met office app, the ui is really nicely done.

And finally, uk weather, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cat.joanpujol.eltemps.android.uk has a metric ton of data from local weather stations, and unlike accuweather, when you put in your location it actually retrieves observations from proper local stations rather than pretending and using the nearest cities data instead.  As an example, accuweather gets its data from a station at least 30 miles from my home, uk weather consults a station less than a mile away (and yes, i checked, there is actually one there).


That eweather hd app above looks nice, i could well be tempted if i wasnt such a cheapskate lol.
