Weather Line 1.9 for iOS will be on sale for $2.99, down from $3.99, for one week to celebrate the iPhone X update. The new version also includes these changes:

Added Amount metric (inches/mm of rain)

Added Cloud Cover metric

Hidden short term forecast when not available

The app, which was created by Ryan Jones, has also taken on a new developer with Deepak Mantena, who worked on the latest version, joining Jones to work on Weather Line 2.

Weather Line touts Dark Sky-powered hyperlocal precipitation prediction, visually rich charts for seeing forecasts, a super small install size optimized for limited storage, and no background location tracking.

Grab Weather Line for iPhone X for $2.99 (reg. $3.99) starting today on the App Store, and stay tuned for version 2 this year.

Update 1/9: Version 1.9.1 is out as a quick update to add a couple new features:

What’s New in Version 1.9.1

# NEW
