Environment Canada launches its own weather app

The federal agency launched its first weather app for iPhone and Android this week, including a new high-resolution radar option so amateur meteorologists can guess exactly when the next rain storm or blizzard is going to hit their backyard.

WeatherCAN is free, can be operated in English or French, and includes Indigenous symbols for northern locations.

There are any number of other weather apps on the market, but Environment Canada had never bothered to make one for itself until now, despite getting 40 million hits to its website every month and being the source of weather data used by many other weather apps.
