Weather plays an essential role and knowing what’s up with nature is vital. Every year weather adapts changes and comparing those changes with the past weather can give us an image of future climate. In this article, we are going to cover the five ways to check the past weather on any platform. Some of these methods are platform-dependent, and some are easily accessible on all the platforms.
Before continuing to the article, let me clear one thing, that there are no Android apps to cover the past data yet. As new apps publish, I’ll update the post. The below ways are for iOS and web-based apps.
timeanddate.com is a website where users can see the historical weather for hundreds of cities. The website also provides apps for iOS and Android, but none of the apps shows historical data. The site can be accessed on major web browsers. On the site, you must put the name of the place and the date. The tool does not show the data for suburbs, but it covers the significant cities.
An iOS app offers to see current and historical data. The service gets data from over 180,000 weather stations in the world, and the data is checked every 2.5 seconds. You can see the current and past data for, including temperature, wind speed, direction, dew point, pressure, sunrise, sunset, rain, moon phase and much more for many cities across the world.
Weather Underground is another web-based weather data provider. The services allow you to view the past data for many major cities. The website is not fully developed to show the historical weather for suburbs in many countries, but you can see the data of the town for that suburb. You can also find Weather Underground apps on the App Store and Google Play Store, but both apps do not support the historical data.
AccuWeather is one of the great weather services in the world. Unfortunately, AccuWeather apps do not support past weather data, but the website can show the historical data for minimum and maximum temperature. The site has an option to select the month option to view the past and future data together.
AccuWeather WeatherCyclopedia is another app to browse through historical data. The premium app is designed for climate awareness. With the help of this app, you can gather weather data, solve weather-related trivia, predict future weather using with the help of non-scientific ways, check and take precautions in different climates around the world etc.
Weather apps for Android
Android is a big platform, but there aren’t any trusted past weather apps on Google Play. I could find one, but that one doesn’t look promising as there was a difference of 4 Degree C for my current city.
Like me, there are over ten thousand people who search for historical data every month. I hope the article helped. Thanks a lot for reading and feel free to share any views if you have. You can also subscribe to the newsletter for future updates.
