Not unless I enter my zip code as 19090.  As close as it is, Willow Grove NAS 
tends to be windier and colder than the reality here.  Not as inaccurate as 
Wings Field in Blue Bell.  Actually NE Phila. Airport gives the most accurate 
though it is farther away than Willow Grove.

But NOAA does not provide an app, I need to check the web site periodically.
