The Weather Channel has been the gold standard for broadcast weather forecasts since 1980. With that in mind, it only makes sense for The Weather Channel to evolve with the times and the modern, digital era. With its evolution, The Weather Channel has created the most popular weather app in the world with its own unique The Weather Channel app.
The Weather Channel app offers comprehensive aspects of weather forecasts, including data such as wind speed, temperature and humidity levels. It caters to people who aren’t just looking for local weather updates, but who want to examine the weather anywhere on the planet the moment they need it. This means the app is a great source for advanced trip planning and travel for long-distance trips up to two weeks in advance. On top of that, the app has a dynamic home screen that changes based on the location of current users, the local area’s weather and the time of the day. So the app is not only great for providing extended weather forecasts anywhere in the world, but also real-time, local weather conditions as well. Besides a dynamic home screen, The Weather Channel app provides amazing radar-based weather maps. Loading these maps is an absolute cinch, and they even have layers to track previous weather radars or future weather radars. The map also has layers to show road or satellite views. In addition, the radar maps measure water temperature, wind speeds, snow cover and various other elements. The Weather Channel app goes the extra mile with its strong real-time weather alert system. This includes notifications from the National Weather Service with potential warnings for severe weather, such as tornado or severe storm watches. All the alerts for the app can be personalized or adjusted to user preferences. For those with allergies, users can even enable a Pollen Alert to measure the pollen counts in a given area. One especially unique feature that’s only available to The Weather Channel is the exclusive video series, The Lift. In this six-minute show, Al Roker, Domenica Davis and Ari Sarsalari offer breaking weather forecasts, cool science facts and nature clips. An exclusive digital series is the type of flavor that only The Weather Channel’s app can offer.
The app has recently been adjusted with some stronger video formatting, including a picture-in-picture feature. The Weather Channel app is free-to-download, and it’s available now for iOS devices. The exceptional weather app is just a click away at the App Store.
