Yahoo-weather-01Yahoo announced an update to its Weather app today that brings more of the high-quality animations for weather conditions it first launched in its iOS app earlier this year. The update also adds a revamped design that offers a better experience on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The new animated effects include visuals for lightning and frost, which come in addition to the fog, rain, heat, and snow effects the app had previously. Yahoo’s announcement says the effects utilize “bleeding-edge graphics technology typically only seen in video games.”

We’re excited to take your weather experience to the next level, as we make it even more delightful… So, instead of reading about the stormy conditions, you’ll actually see lightning flash across your screen.

The animations and updated design that takes advantage of the new larger iPhones are are available in the latest version of the Yahoo Weather app for iPhone and iPad.
