Default weather phone app???

Anyone know if there is a phone weather app that doesn't use cell service? I want something to check the weather when we are off shore, not sure if anything like this is available.

If you don't have cell service, how do plan to get data to your phone?
Unless you have satellite Internet and wifi on your boat its not gonna work.

This is designed for avation, but could work for you.

The SXAR1 is a low profile wireless receiver that rests on your glareshield. The all-in-one device receives the SiriusXM datalink weather broadcast and sends it wirelessly to your iPad using Bluetooth. The receiver has an integrated 5-hour battery and relies on internal antennas, meaning it is completely wire-free. Like the previous satellite weather services, you’ll still need to pay a monthly subscription fee of $34.99/month, but this gets you a premium datalink weather service with features not available over ADS-B:

high-resolution NEXRAD radar with storm cell attributes
observed lightning strikes
surface analysis imagery and high-resolution forecast winds
works on the ground during startup and taxi, and across all areas of the U.S. at any altitude
SiriusXM radio entertainment (additional subscription required)
