The weather archive for last year have added in new version. Weather for last year is available in the new window of the app, in 10-day description and in new widgets.
Annual archives of air temperature and sea for any city in the world allows you to choose the good time and place for the travel. You can compare the weather in the current year with the weather in the last year. Also you can always have an your own opinion about the statements that has never was so cold, hot, wet, dry, etc.
Also color themes have been added. You can download or create new color themes and then share with your friends (Menu-Settings-Programm-color theme).
Visibility on the roads have been added in to the current conditions tab. This will give you one more argument in the decision for choose car or public transport.
Dew point graph in the hourly forecast will allow to you better planning time to work out of the home.

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....t.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....emps.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.
