With our latest iOS 8 update, we’re taking our award-winning experience on the Yahoo Weather app even further. Using technology typically only experienced in video games, we’re bringing weather to life on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It’s the same beautiful design and location-based weather photos from Flickr, now combined with amazing weather effects. You’ll even see these animations appear directly in the Yahoo Weather Today widget.

Now when you check the forecast during a hot summer day, you will actually see the haze come across your screen. You’ll also see the rain, snow, and fog –with even more effects coming soon.

These animated effects will make checking the forecast daily more delightful than ever. So take the opportunity to explore the weather in your favorite places around the world, and see for yourself. Update your app or download the latest version in the App Store today.
