Popular weather app Weather Atlas, made by Contrast and Agile Tortoise, today received a major 2.0 update that adds new functionality and a new look to the app.

With the 2.0 update, Weather Atlas is now known as "Weather Up," a revamped name for a revamped app. Much of the app has been rewritten with usability improvements and fixes for lingering bugs.

Weather Up's main new feature is Event Forecasts, designed to provide weather information about upcoming events that you're attending. Once you provide Weather Up with calendar access, it will let you know the weather conditions for your events, so you're never taken by surprise when doing something outdoors.

Along with the new Event Forecasts look and the new name, Weather Up features a new set of weather icons and a redesigned mapping feature. The Weather Up map features standard radar and cloud layers, along with options for temperature, humidity, and precipitation accumulation.

There are also warning layers for the map to let you know about incoming thunderstorms, tornados, hurricanes, and tropical storms.

Weather Up can be downloaded from the App Store for free. A Weather Up Pro subscription costs $9.99 per year or $1.99 per month. [Direct Link]

No watch app, no go.
Yup, this is why I stick with Carrot Weather. I'm so accustomed to getting weather alerts on my AW, as much as I like some other weather apps (ie. Hello Weather), I really prefer weather apps that have a AW app.

Lol it’s ridiculous to charge a subscription for a weather app. They can keep it, so many good free alternatives out there. And some great non feee but not subscription based solutions.
No, it's not ridiculous. For example, WK has an average monthly running cost of $4500 - and it's not profitable, but we love working on it. We take on client projects that help us "buy" more time for WeatherKit.

Every time you open a weather app, someone has to pay for the data the app shows - and the monthly bill only gets bigger and bigger. That's why, unfortunately, weather apps are switching to subscription business models — to become self-sustainable.
