Having trouble understanding the deep-blue line on the route?

Here is another way to look at it. - The slider thumb on the time slider control represents a single point in time and the airplane on the map represents a single point over the ground at that time. The deep blue line on the time slider represents the 2 hour time range that thunderstorms are being forecasted for by weather stations on the map. The deep blue line on the route represents the route of the plane during that same 2 hour time.

How can weather be 'forever'?

Or what happens if the app is no longer supported, will weather still be downloadable? Yes, the weather is downloaded directly from NOAA's website. There is no need for any servers to be maintained by me.
What happens if NOAA rearranges its website? There is a mechanism to update the website information in the app when this happens. If for some reason that is unavailable it is still possible to update the website addresses manually in Settings.

Where does the weather come from

The weather is supplied from NOAA. See the 'Bug Reports' page for links to the raw weather data sources. Details of how to interpret the raw weather data are available here.
