Although there are several minimal and beautifully designed weather apps competing for attention, Yahoo!'s Weather App is one of the newest (and free ones) that will surely give the rest a run for their money.

In addition to providing the current weather conditions, forecasts and other reports, the app uses local Flickr captures based on your specified location to provide background images that depict the weather. The app even lets you choose favorite locations, which is perfect for getting a visual on the weather for a loved one in a different city, or planning ahead for a vacation.

This is a great, personal way to receive weather updates as captured by people in your city. You can even contribute to the images used in the app by submitting to theThe Project Weather Group on Flickr.
