Get the Hourly Weather Forecast in iOS 5 on iPhone & iPod touch

Hour by Hour weather forecast in iOS 5 The weather app in iOS 5 has been improved to include quickly accessible hourly forecasts, in addition to the percentage chance of rain and severe weather, like thunder and snow storms.

To access the hour-by-hour weather forecast:

  • Launch Weather and tap the “Hourly” button, or just swipe down on the day
