PYKL3 Radar

Why settle for smoothed images of low-resolution radar that claim to be high resolution when you can have the REAL data as delivered from National Weather Service radars? Smoothed “street level” “high resolution” radar is a visualization gimmick which compromises data quality. The data that NWS radar generates appears pixelated to inexperienced users, but there is a reason it looks that way - accuracy! This is what PYKL3Radar provides–the most accurate dataset available. If you want professional grade information instead of pretty pictures, you have come to the right place! Combine that with its unmatched customization with 40+ data layers, PYKL3Radar holds its place as the highest rated radar viewer for Android since its introduction in 2010

PYKL3 Radar (pronounced Pickle Radar) was the first level 3 radar viewer for Android. It remains the most advanced, yet simple to use application for United States radar information. PYKL3Radar is intended for users who want more out of a weather radar viewer…much more! PYKL3Radar also gives you surface observation plots (ground truth), satellite imagery, and virtually every National Weather Service text product wrapped with a highly customizable experience. Designed with first responders, spotters, emergency management officials, and chasers in mind, PYKL3 continues to push the limits of what is possible on Android by embracing the ideas of a very active user community. PYKL3 is the only Android viewer with customizable colors, including the radar color table. What's more, your location is constantly displayed right on top of the radar imagery. PYKL3 Radar is the application for having the critical weather data you need. Radar data from every operational National Weather Service WSR-88D and FAA Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR) site is delivered to your phone with products ranging from standard reflectivity to the newest dual-pol variables.
