Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a barometer, which measure atmospheric pressure that can help alert you to a possible nearby a rainstorm before a slowly updated weather app can. It even have a thermometer.
With the proper algorithm, the internal reading could be used to approximate the ambient temperature around you.
