- At Home
There’s a big tailgate party for the Little League baseball championships in a few hours, and the sky is looking grey. Local weather reports and news channels drone on forever before talking about your local forecast and frankly, sometimes the weatherman just doesn’t have the conviction in his voice that you need in order to determine whether or not to bring the waterproof pop-up tent.
So what’s your plan? Enter Raindropping - a simple way to get a straightforward and no-frills report of when and if it will rain.
How does it work? Just visit Raindropping.com, enter your address or zipcode into the search bar, and hit go. Raindropping will tell then tell you when and if it will start to rain in your location within the next 6 hours. The program is also designed to calculate the rainstopping time, or when, within the next 6 hours, the rain will stop falling.
The program is easy-to-use, but the math behind it is what really counts. Raindropping claims to utilize the most accurate weather prediction data available when making its forecasts, and it boasts a high satisfaction rate in terms of result accuracy.
What’s more, Raindropping’s weather maps update every 15 minutes (because a storm front can change course in that little time!), so you’re always looking at the latest forecast. And best of all, you can now get Raindropping to go. It’s available as an app for any iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch that runs on iOS 5.0 or later.
