WillyWeather delivers the most accurate local weather data from best in class weather providers including the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM). Going beyond the average weather service, we process and fine-tune forecast data to the specific coordinates of over 17,000 Australian locations including all suburbs, towns, beaches, rivers, parks, lakes and islands.

Weather - Seven day BoM weather forecasts tailored to each location including min/max temperatures, hourly temperature forecasts and detailed weather descriptions.
Radar - Raw BoM radar data, refined, processed and integrated with Google Maps.
Satellite - National satellite view, displaying cloud cover for the entire Australian continent integrated with Google Maps.
Tides - The most comprehensive tide times system in Australia, bringing together BoM standard port data with offsets from the Australian National Tide Tables and various state based marine agencies. Includes every beach in Australia, and many river systems and inlets.
Wind - An amalgamation of the most accurate global wind forecast models gathered from the BoM, NOAA and ECMWF, interpolated to the exact coordinates for each location and vetted against real-time wind observations to deliver the best performing information.
UV - Hourly UV index forecasts, including alerts outlining extreme conditions when there is risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure.
Moon Phases - Full moon and new moon phases, illumination and rise and set times. Deeply integrated with tidal data.
Rainfall - Intuitive visual indication of rainfall probability and intensity for the week ahead, using the latest ACCESS models provided by the BoM.
Swell - Swell height, period and direction for each beach in Australia.
Sunrise/Sunset - Sunrise and sunset times with first light and last light.
Real time observational data - with trends for all locations including current temperature, rain since 9am, rain last hour, humidity, pressure, wind speed, wind direction, wind gusts and dew point.
BoM Warnings - Easily accessible and specifically targeted to the locations affected.

• Interactive rainfall radar and satellite, using Google Maps: pan and zoom like you've always wanted through the national BoM radar network, and continental satellite view to see exactly where rain is falling around you, or your favourite locations. Our mapping features provide more control and more detail than any other Australian weather source.
• Stunning, interactive tide, swell, temperature and wind forecast graphs which allow you to easily understand the conditions at your favourite surf beach, secret fishing spot or upcoming hike - in real-time, and up to seven days in the future. We're particularly proud of our graphs, we pushed the boundaries to provide you with more context, and more detail for each weather type.
• A beautiful, simple and organised interface in which the weather data that is important to you is easy to find, consume and interact with. Our goal was to present accurate and relevant weather information to you, as quickly, and easily as possible.

No Zoom? Great app very detailed lots of information BUT can't zoom in on the radar map. I zoom in and as I let go it zooms straight out again. Feature works fine on ipad so why not on android?

kristie barrett

Willy weather app Awesome app easy to use and has great detail everything u need the only thing was it says it updates every 5 mins.. but it updates about 3 times a day

Frankie Fresco

CPU & Battery issues Fixed, BEST weather app This app is amazing in terms of design and what it offers, I swear by Willy weather for my fishing trips. This is your one stop reliable weather app! Even in the unpredictable Melbourne climate, Willy weather always pulls theough! The developers have been awesome in working with users to solve the problems and the CPU & Battery issues have since been fixed. Great work guys!

Dan Exile

Could be better I use this app everyday, I really like the lay out and ease of use. I use the tide and swell info with confidence that it is correct. However the wind predictions are often incorrect. Fix up the wind forecast and it would be best app available.

Daniel Jenkins

Great product Love it, great app. Now we need you to develop a version that works on tablets as this one only works in portrait. As others have said, a widget world also add usefulness. An exit button would also be useful as now you have to keep hitting the back button to get out. Keep up the good work

Michael van Dijk

Fantastic App Love it Has to be the best weather app. Was sick and tired of other crappy apps I was using. Love Willy awesome.

steven cox

Awesome app needs widget Hands down the best weather app around, but as everyone else is saying it needs a widget to bring it up to 5 star status.

Daniel James

Widget I love this app but it really needs a widget, as I'm forced to used other weather app just to have widget on my home screen...please enable a home screen widget next update. Much obliged. Willyweather daily user #1. Thankyou

Michael Williams

At Last Been waiting for this for AGES! It's everything I'd hoped for. Kind of puzzled why there's no Widget though. Surely that's a no brainer. I only really want ONE weather app.. The one that's accurate and reliable. Come on Willyweather hurry up and let me ditch unAccuWeather. 5 stars when the widget comes.

Chris Cassells

BEST APP EVER Been waiting since the first smart phone came out for this app. Hands down best and probably only app that forecasts up to date hourly wind speeds and direction. Perfect for planning and fish out on the bay

Marcus Eaton

The best weather app Comprehensive, visually beautiful, fully functional. Love it! A widget would be the icing on the cake.

Jai Ritter

Great layout I love it but would like a few widgets, like swell and wind widget would be nice! What's with the ads? Can you get rid of the ads please, being a paid app it shouldn't have any.

Jodie Spencer

Best weather app around I've used WillyWeather for many years and it's never let me down, very accurate and very useful. Simply love it bring on widgets!!

Elaine Hall

Most comprehensive weather app. Love it. Easy to read, use and understand

Nicholas Anderson

Willy Weather How do you get the radar up? Doesn't matter I found it. This app is great

Reece Wardle

Hands down, the best Aus weather app! Visually beautiful, highly accurate (data from BOM) and packing absolutely everything you need for tomorrow's forecast; love it! Little worried making the switch from iOS, but the Android version is just as good, if not better! Keep up the good work WillyWeather team :)

Uschi Um

Another vote for a widget App is great, has everything in one place and shows all data clearly; but really, really needs a widget!

Josue Galindo

Excellent so far. I can't fault this app at all yet for detailed weather information. Fantastic. I don't really need a widget as I use the one that came with my phone. But saying that I could see the benefits of a highly customisable widget option. Maybe something to consider for the next major upgrade. For now very satisfied.

Nathan Trigg

To Slow Running through google delays data 1 hour, app layout poor, try web version see for yourself....

David Quinton

Finally Widget would be great. This is a great adaptation of a great website. Well done!

Flynn Taylor

Finally This app has helped me check the weather so much easier and I would recommend it to others.;)

Kevin Wilson

Good App Works well but I'd like to be able to change locations so I can check the weather at my destination before I go. I have to use the browser option to do this. Thanks for the update. Now 5 stars. An option to view in landscape on a tablet would be even better.

Luke Saxon Saxon

Great weather app! Amazing and easy to use app. Allowed me to plan a boating trip in seconds as all the info is quick and responsive.

Tyronne Mills

Wont show tide times The app wont show the tide times it says no tide chart for stockton no matter what I press on but if I go on the willy weather website it does have a tide chart for stockton so useless definatly unistalling never gonna download this app again this is just pathetic

John Drakes

Best weather app bar none. I've given it 5 even without a widget. It's the only weather app I need for surfing, snorkelling, cycling, bush walking, lazing at the beach, daily cycle commute and anything else that involves sun, rain, wind, tides ie stepping out of my house each day. Bring on the widget and I'll give it a 6

Michael Dean

I love it! Im not sure i feel the need for a widget due to the big use of data but i guess i dont have to use it hey. If you make it then you please everybody. I love that it already does everything. Zoom on the radar would be nice though. Cheers


Almost perfect If this had a widget and an hourly rain probability/amount graph in the daily view, it would be near perfect. Edit: 3 stars for crashes and inconsistent data between forecast page and rain tab regarding rain probability.

Graeme Barrett

Has everything Has all the information I need before I go kayaking or fishing. Only problem is it takes ages to load. But maybe it's time to upgrade from my Galaxy II.

Rachel Bennett

Love it. The most accurate weather reading app I've found. I love it to check the tides and winds. Have been using the site for ages but got tired of logging on the internet all the time, the app is so quick! It made my day :) widgets would be good though.

Kym Brice

Be Wise with ya willy quick , diversely detailed and accurate. Especially Great weather app for surfers, fishermen ...

Joedy Bowden

Great app Love the tide times! Is there any chance of making a high tide/ low tide widget please for Android phones? Just a simple tide logo with an arrow either showing up, or down that sits on the homescreen so I don't have to go into the app. That would be brilliant!

Ian Machinist

Excellent Great app easy to use gives me every thing I wanted

mark halliday

Always use this to go fishing never been wrong so far great stuff .

Matt B

Wouldn't use anything else For years we've been able to trust WW for safe and enjoyable boating. And now there's an app for that. Thank you!

Anna Shirtliff

Satellite and radar maps dont work on Samsung note2.

nico atanasov

Love the app Hands down it is the most accurate app I have found! Keep up the good work

Rob Steinert

Weather Quick reply. Problem solved. Back to 4 stars. When widget gets added then 5 stars.

Leanne Toole

Very handy Has been pretty spot on, have used this app previously on my other phones and used it all the time.

John Murray

Could be better It's ok but can be frustratingly slooooow to load

Gerrard Nilon

Tiny 1 Great app use it all the time for checking before going fishing

Matt Geeves

Like this app a lot, especially its feature set. Only thing I would like is the ability to share alerts (especially rural alerts such as sheep graziers and road conditions) to Facebook from the app. This could be beneficial in a lot of ways...

Paul Guilfoyle

Veryy good Only thing missing is the barometric pressure ? Only 4 stars.... A big thanks to the team at W W on your quick response to finding the barometric pressure. A big 5 stars ?.

Bob Morris

Love It Tried heaps of weather apps but found this easiest to use and generally more accurate than the others I tried. Bought the pay version to get rid of the obnoxious flashing ads and to support the developer.

David Quinton

Finally Widget would be great. This is a great adaptation of a great website. Well done! I've used the ios version and this is way more functional.

andrew van voss

Satellite image Constantly very poor imaging of cloud cover. Clouds seem to disappear on the satellite map and then reappear an hour or so later when the visual clouds above are clearly think and prominent. Other than that it's pretty good.

nick vespo

Great App for Australia Best app for weather in Australia and I have used many. **The only problem is it crashes and is slow to load almost every time on my Galaxy S5 Android 5**. I have to uninstall it and find something else. You might not experience the same with your phone. Don't let the name and logo fool you as this is a pro app!

Patrick Carey

Map zoom would be good? Good app, works well, lots of info but I can't zoom in on the map!! Why not?, with the ability to zoom I'd definitely give 5 stars

Mike Sebel

Great- just 1 thing needed to make it 5 stars... The only issue is it only works in portrait - so not the best for tablets.

Geoff Ingram

A complete app When it comes to rain, wind, temperature, tides, UV...even weather radar, this app has it all. It replaces about 5 or 6 other apps. BRILLIANT!!!

Shirley Dean

Shirley D Just perfect, simple to use, but very detailed, love it!!!!

David Greenfield

No widget! G'day guys, a most excellent app, the best weather app I've found so far, however, it needs a home screen widget with clock and min/max and current temps for quick reference otherwise you have to open the app to see what the current temperature is. This addition would guarantee 5 ***** stars from me and I'm sure, many others. Cheers, well done ?

Tracy Smith

Add a widget and it's perfect Nice, clean look. Easy to navigate and read. Comprehensive. I do like having a weather widget on my home screen, though. Pretty pleaaaasssseeeee? I would definitely buy a premium version if it had a widget.

Jarred Zealey

Needs closer zoom!!! Love the app it's fantastic but begging you to add the extra zoom back in. Its a life save for farmers!!! Everything else though is sensational

Thomas May

Very Accurate! It took me a long time to find an accurate weather forecast and radar. Very happy. It has everything I need and want to know! A zoom on the radar map would be nice however. It would be good also if the current hourly forecast available was displayed in a different way so it can be easily viewed. It's a bit hard to understand where it as currently.

Matthew Downing

No weather warnings. No Zoom? I have my forecast area set where i live in NSW but within spitting distance of the QLD border, BUT I never get weather warnings if they originate in QLD only ones for NSW that are Sydney based and would rarely affect me. Can't zoom in on the radar map. I zoom in and as I let go it zooms straight out again. Feature works fine on ipad so why not on android?

Bevan Gordon

Great app Its simple to use, accurate with the suburb Im in. Looks great.

Grandma Brown

Have found get ride of adds and paid Now its its best. I have loved this since we were in Tasmania. Found get rid of rid.

Grant McGarry

Very good but no synoptic chart? Also like to see previous three days weather in swype back

A Google User

Widgets? Would be great if you offered widgets with the app. A 5x2 one for larger screens like the Nexus 6

Steve Watson

Great app, just needs a widget. Fantastic to finally see willyweather on android. All the details are great and it beats every other app in terms of accuracy. Just needs that home screen widget.

Jackson Geritz

The Best The best weather app I have tried for Australia. Easy to use, accurate, uses BOM data. Could use a widget, but the widget would have to display so much information.

Arron Robinson

Live worm for wind? Great app...use it all the time. I dont have the live worm on the wind graph when other devices do...dont see a setting for it

Nathan Trigg

To Slow Running through google delays data 1 hour, app layout poor, try web version see for yourself....

Matthew Thorn

Tried the rest, this is the best This has to be the best weather app by far, easy to use, easy to read.

Luis Cypher

Its a keeper.. im impressed Very handy for photography..wish it had lightning...that would make it perfect for me to the point that i would delete all the other weather apps on my tablet....nice app well done

s louey

missing feature your website has the "feels like temp" tho you app doesn't.... big fail, better off using the mobile site

James Bruce

Works just fine when the weather is clear, but not when there is actually something to see on the radar, been waiting two days for it to load


EXCELLENT but missing SYNOPTIC CHARTS... Hi, love your payed$ android willy weather app. Works great and is the best in my opinion as I have a few others such as weatherzone +, windfinder pro, etc. HOWEVER THE MAIN LET DOWN OF YOUR APP IS THAT THERE ARE NO SYNOPTIC CHARTS - CURRENT-DAYLY-4DAYLY, ETC, AND NO MONTHLY CALENDER OF RAIN LIKELY HOOD LIKE WEATHERZONE + HAS. PLEASE INCLUDE THIS ON A FUTURE UPDATE. ALSO A LIGHTNING STRIKE ADDITION WOULD BE GREAT TOO. Yours is still the best app though :). Thanks Don

Heather Walkerden

Disappointed cos no help given Very disappointed with this. Really I think it's the best weather app out there when it works but my rain radar stopped working and tech support eventually replied to just say don't know why and we can't help so I'm deleting it. I really expected more i would give it 5 if only they could fix this problem

Matt K

Good Have been using Web based ww for ages. It's all very good just do not understand why you don't give us swell in degrees. It's the only reason I go to other sites. Degrees that swell comes in on is very important

Kayarbe Rob

Wild Willy Weather This is a wild app that does all the usual stuff better than most. Wind and swell charts are the BOM. Now if we could just have a function to control the weather we'd all be a Willy worshipers. If that's too much to ask then how about a national synoptic chart and screen rotation?

Dan S

Still draining my battery Just noticed that this app is draining my battery. Having had a look at it in Google Play it mentions that the battery issue has been fixed, unfortunately not for me. Samsung S6. Has been my weather app for the longest time hopefully yhis can be sorted asap.

barry turner

Willyweather This is a great app, I do a lot of fishing and check conditions every time before iI leave, tides, wind strength and direction, rainfall it has the lot and then some. Not sure how I got by before I started using this app. Rain radar, moon stages, swell height, did I mention it has the lot, I lied, its got more than that.


Can't look at future tide info beyond current week. This feature removed from their new web site also. Not happy :( Edit:- Confirmed, "Jump to date" has been removed from the "new" site. Not happy :(


this is great! the only weather app I use the only thing I think this app is missing is a widget of some sort. half the time I only want to see what the temp is for that day or the next, and I don't want to install a different weather app just to save a few taps

Alyssa Lumsden

Only one thing missing I love the app! It's so accurate and has all of the information I need in one place. The only thing missing is a widget for the home screen to get basic information quickly without opening the app.

Robert Garvey

Signs you up to Jamster Be very careful with the adds in this app. A couple of incorrect key strokes and you will be signed up to Jamster and billed weekly. Google Jamster and you will see the scam.

Leigh Kilday

Widget please This is by far the best weather app I've used. The only thing missing is a widget. I'd like to scroll scroll between temperature, rainfall and wind graphs for the coming week.

Bob Hedges

Error? Your wind speed seems to often be twice the rate of other local weather apps. You don't by any chance happen to have some confusion in your app between km/hr and knots. Love the presentation of the app generally nut never trust the wind forecast. Fix this and I'll give it 5 stars!

john thomas

Very glitchy When then app loads it's great but either takes forever to load or don't load at all 50% of the time this needs sorting

Adrian Roggero

Great app... But. I do like the app WillyWeather however I don't like the ad saying my phone may have a virus. It gets people paranoid. Get rid of these types of panic merchants please.

Anil Gulati

Loads of info Wind rain tides moon sunrise everything. Got to work around to get it of course. Not greatly pretty IMO.

zane lomas

I normally love this app I use this app all the time for fishing weather alerts but i just had a look and it is say there is 37 km winds were i am but there isn't a breeze please fix this

Steph H

Constantly wrong about the weather in my area. Said it hasn't rain since 9am. Its rained all bloody day!

J Wood

Not very accurate! Saying my day is to be partly cloudy. I guess strong wind, thunder and lightning does involve clouds.............ah well, the search for a perfect weather app continues!

Matt Langley

Widget? I've returned to Willy Weather and still no widget. What have you got against widgets Willy Weather people, my life is incomplete without a widget. An otherwise excellent app.

Ryan Gregson

Best one I've found Heaps better than accu or weather zone, so many extra FREE features and the best layout. The only thing holding back 5 stars is the lack or a widget.

Anton Uvarov

Good app... but the weather is very inaccurate, at least temperature. Sometimes could be upto 7-8 degrees difference for my suburb (i.e. app vs actual).

Greg Styles

Not installing on tablet Gets to 94% progress when installing on tablet then just stops. Pendo CETAB10KML9 Android 4.4.2. Has always been great on PC and phone though.

Mark Barber

Overall great but... Overall this app is awesome. The only issue i find is if i have changed wind units to knots the forecast days still give values in km/h instead of knots.
