The new app combines Flickr photos from the Project Weather Group with accurate and detailed weather information from around the world. Rain in Tokyo? Snow in Paris? You’ll not only get the facts, but also see what it looks like. For a fullscreen view of the image, simply tilt your phone. To see the photo on Flickr, tap on the photographer’s name that’s displayed with each photo.

Have a great weather shot? Submit your photos to the Project Weather Group to be showcased in Yahoo! Weather for iPhone and Android, and to help us collect beautiful weather photos for every condition in every city across the globe. Just make sure that your photos meet the requirements and are tagged with the photo’s geo-location. Soon even your own neighborhood could be available for everyone to see.
