How can I be alerted if the weather changes? For example, if it starts raining, I will receive an alarm / warning? This would obviously be based on some local weather feed, rather than actually detecting rain.

It would be useful because sometimes I have windows open for drying clothes and stuff, and from the room I am normally in one does not notice immediately when it starts raining. It would be very useful.

All I could think of is like examining a radar picture, e.g. from dwd.de => Deutschlandwetter => Radarbild, but it is always 15 minutes late. So the app must check a bigger area on the picture, then it could warn you in advance. –  ott-- Feb 14 '13 at 10:51
    
According to our FAQ, this falls into the category Can you suggest an app that does X?, which is expressly off-topic. A hint, though: Search the Playstore for "weather-app" yields some useful results. –  Izzy Feb 14 '13 at 13:44
    
I've tweaked the question to be more about a problem to be solved rather than an app to be found. –  Al E. Feb 14 '13 at 18:23

This isn't an Android solution, but I think it will work for you.

This IFTTT Recipe will send an SMS if the weather condition changes to "Rain".

Trigger (Weather channel)

  • Current condition changes to rain

Action (SMS channel)

  • Send me an SMS message

My suggestion: look at Tasker, which is basically a scripting app for Android, and set up an alarm based on your weather app or a weather feed. While not an out of the box solution, I wouldn't think that there would be an app already built that does what you're asking so that's likely you're best bet.
