Tool – UAV Forecast
UAV Forecast is one of the best weather apps for beginner and above drone pilots. It’s available as a webpage, an Android app OR an iOS app, as well.

- You will quickly be looking at information for your location, like below:
At 33 Feet
At 400 Feet
It happens to be safe to fly at 33-400 feet on this occasion.
I wouldn’t be too worried about the Est. Sats Locked (warning) as I haven’t found that to be very accurate and haven’t had trouble locking onto plenty of satellites once I am all set to fly my drone.
