2012 was definitely a year of unexpected, and unprecedented weather challenges. Hopefully, 2013 doesn't present the same ones – but severe weather tends not follow a schedule!

To help you chase the sun and run from the rain, the team behind AOL's weather site, SKYE on AOL, has just launched a new interactive app that brings the weather to you, wherever you are.

SKYE Weather + Photo offers real-time reports, user-generated photos from around the world and the ability to share weather forecasts across your favorite social platforms. And of course, it includes hourly and seven-day forecasts and a crowd-sourced weather reporting.

Give it a spin by downloading the app for your iPhone for free by clicking here.
