This screen in itself is why I prefer this app over the Weather Channel's app or AccuWeather. It's not overly complicated and it displays all of the information that I care to know in a contemporary and stunning format.
It's also worth noting at this point that the alerts that show on this screen will also show up in the notification drawer of Android itself. For instance, if there were severe thunderstorms coming through Altoona, I would have a red triangle in my notifications stating the sever weather alert and all affected areas. Below is an example of a severe weather alert. Note that you can share the severe weather alert with friends from here as well.
I suppose this page can be useful if you want to see what time the heat will break for the day and how that compares to when rain or snow is supposed to fall. For instance, the chart to the right shows that the temperature will peak at around 80F at noon. There will then be about an 80% chance of rain starting at 11pm where you'll see the temperature drops significantly.
The information isn't very practical in my opinion, but I guess its cool to see the correlations between temperature and precipitation.
Widgets... widgets... widgets....
I know what you're probably thinking, "Big Whoop, who cares about how many widgets you get." Well, I think once you see them, you'll change your attitude.
When you create a widget, you are prompted with a customization page. From here you can choose which location to show weather about, what color you'd like to accent with, whether the widget's background is light or dark, and weather the widget is opaque or not.
Here’s an example of how the widgets display on different devices:
