Sometimes glancing outside -- or even being outside -- doesn't reveal the entire story, and even the most live-and-let-live types occasionally wonder if they should bring a jacket. Don't get caught off guard and in the rain -- go exploring with some of the ever-evolving mobile weather apps.

Some people believe that your preferred mobile platform reveals a lot about you; some people are more concerned about the weather's ability to make or break your day. Whatever the case, not all mobile weather apps are created equal, so we've examined a variety of weather-related options for phones, pads and pods. From the pretty to the profound, for the curious onlooker to the thrill-seeking storm enthusiast, there's a mobile weather option destined for your home screen.
