Covering South-African cities **ONLY**, WeatherSA allows you to customise the weather notices sent to your device, from storm warnings* and national alerts to weekly forecasts and even the best time of day* to cycle, jog, hit the beach and much more.
Track SA storms in real time as they cross the country. View cool features such as animated radar*, maps, graphs and detailed weather tables. We are the most accurate source of SA weather, and we have incredible world first features. We offer more for FREE than any other weather app (for SA), but subscribers get some awesome extras not available anywhere else.
This app is designed for SA, by South Africans, and is the only app supported by SAWS (Met Office). There really should be no reason for you to use any other weather app for SA.
