Forgive me 1: I do not know how to link to IOS apps. But you can search for SpaceWeatherLive. I hope they have an IOS version of it. But any app will do because they get their data from the same source anyway.

Forgive me 2: I mixed up the terms a little. The 1 hour forecast (not the 3 day forecast) is the one that should be called the Short Term Forecast.
