Here at Komando.com, we've shown you several different weather apps so you can get the most comprehensive weather report around, but this app takes everything one step beyond.

If you're thinking about walking the dog, going to the park or hitting the road for a long drive, the new AccuWeather MinuteCast app includes minute-by-minute precipitation forecasts for the next two hours, so you know what to expect.

Better yet, MinuteCast is "hyperlocal," which means it uses your phone's GPS location data, so it's accurate for your specific location. You might never get caught in the rain, sleet or snow ever again!

MinuteCast also lets you access forecasts for nearly 3 million locations across the world including: times for sunrise and sunset, humidity percentage, visibility index, UV index and what the temperature feels like. The app prepares you for weather in the future, too. You can view descriptive weather animations for right now, the next 72 hours and the next 15 days. It also includes a live radar map.

When you open AccuWeather, the first screen displayed is the Daily Snapshot. It shows you exactly what you can expect over the course of the day in your area.

For a more in-depth view, take a look at the Local Forecast Summary. This section shows what type of weather is hitting your area over the next three to five days.

With AccuWeather, you can sign up to receive alerts about severe storms headed your way. Or, you can sync the weather reports to your calendar. When severe weather is headed to your neck of the woods, the app will push notifications right to your gadget's screen to warn you. The app delivers reports just for you, localized to your street address.
