How to check weather in multiple locations on your iPhone

Weather App

Weather is an important detail when planning a vacation, especially in the summer months when most trips include outside activities. The stock iOS weather app is a great way to keep updated on the current and weekly forecast, but most iPhone owners have their settings enabled to show only the weather for their current location. You can easily add and remove additional cities and towns to your weather app to check multiple forecasts.

With summer just around the corner many people will be spending a great deal more time outdoors, enjoying the pleasant weather at the beach, on the water, hiking in the mountains and what have you. Nothing can put a damper on these activities like sudden thunderstorms, which pop up with much greater frequency in the warmer weather. While you can get a basic idea of the day's forecast with your iPhone's Weather app, a "chance of showers" or "scattered thunderstorms" is not going to cut it if you are planning a day of fishing on a lake or hiking above the tree line - you need a radar app.
