I wrote about ClimaCell back in April as an alternative for developers when the Dark Sky API is shut down. But the company also has an app for consumers, and the latest update adds several helpful features, like hyperlocal forecasting. Here’s an example: “For fireworks, ClimaCell took into account humidity (the more humid it is outside, the air saturation will lessen the brightness of the fireworks. Yet too dry is a fire hazard), wind (might change the path of the fireworks if over 20mph) rain, visibility, sunset time and cloud coverage. For BBQ, we don’t want any rain! Wind gusts can be dangerous with the fire, humidity actually affects the flavor of the meat and we want ideal temperatures.” App Store: Free
