“Opening this story with a weather-related adage or aphorism would have been great, if Mother Nature’s approval ratings weren’t currently quite so low,” John Patrick Pullen writes for TIME Magazine. “Things have gotten so bad for the topic of weather in general that Game of Thrones has even stopped warning its fans that ‘winter is coming.'”

“But guess what — it’s here, and we’re all white walkers. So don’t bother making chit-chat by talking about the weather, tap about it instead,” Pullen writes. “No matter the conditions, these ten apps will keep you covered, because believe it or not, it can actually get worse than this.”
