I'm looking for a weather app that can show more than once city's weather in the widget. I'm going on a trip to 3 countries and would like to easy check the weather in all three at the same time without opening the app itself. Is that possible?

Or is there a way to open 3 widgets from the same app?

BeWeather 2 widget is the best, all what i was looking for in weather app plus multiple locations, but there is a big but - couldn't find any of the locations i needed, so the app become useless for me...

Agree. Not all locations are there but I took one that was close so it worked pretty well.

You can also check the Weather Mate app. It has a travel planner feature which is used to check the weather forecast for multiple locations. It also provide a widget to display the weather forecast at the home screen. You do not have to open the app to check the weather forecast, it will directly display it on the home screen.

I also love the BeWeather 2 app and widget. I also hope they fix the city issues. When I search for my city it can find the city but then when it shows it says it's another city nearby?

BeWeather was my go to weather app until it began spitting up blank screens on a regular basis. Now using the very snarky CARROT⁵ weather app.

BeWeather2 is it. Here's a earlier post on how to correctly set it up. Best to use a computer and browser.
Even with this "workaround" it can't find the correct location for me... BeWeather2 had great potential spacial with the widget, if only they used better weather source, what a shame. o_O

For the time being im using Weather Pro Free - its the most accurate i've found with nice widget, plus the built-in weather app.

This is not a "Workaround". You can do the same inside the app. Using a computer/ipad allows you more
viewing area on the map. If your using really any weather app it is harvesting wx data from NOAA or
WeatherUnderground which is individual wx stations someone may have hooked to the network. And,
The Weather Channel, which the default wx app gets data from, and WeatherUnderground are one
big happy family, owned by The Weather Company.

The app works flawless for me. I have been traveling to Innsbruck, my first time arriving, opened app
and first report it found was a rapidfire station, updating every 25 seconds, HoettingWest ITIROLIN6.
Station here.

I have tried again both Forecast bar and Weather Pro Free but both are so big to show certain data in the widget. I do like it that Forecast bar like BeWeather 2 can do a lot as far as preferences within the widget and app. I haven't tried Carrot weather yet though. I would like to stick to BeWeather 2 but the two things which remain missing are:
- show my actual city and not select my city and show a different one when selected
- have the option to show minute by minute rainforecast for other countries such as the Netherlands
