The NBC 6 South Florida apps for iOS and Android can help you prepare for Hurricane Season 2022.

We know how important it is to have an accurate forecast to plan your day and week – we’ve updated the weather screen in our latest version of our app.

Here's some of the improvements you can expect to see inside the app:

Weather section updates

  • Customized experience: Users can now customize the weather page, deciding what information they first see when visiting the weather section
  • More detailed forecast: The forecast now includes new data points such as dew point, UV Index and more
  • Improved radar experience with First Alert Doppler 6000, the most powerful radar in South Florida: The radar will now expand fullscreen, hiding most interface elements to give the user the biggest map area possible
