Keeping yourself abreast with the weather conditions in your area is important. This is because the weather has a major impact on our daily schedules. With satellites and radar systems now able to predict the weather with greater accuracy, the impact on the weather on our schedules can be greatly reduced with information regarding the forecast for the coming days. A weather app can prove extremely useful in this regard. Weather Underground is a great weather app which offers you the tools to ensure that you don't only gather information regarding the weather conditions but also see the dates when you can perform your planned tasks.
Weather Underground: Forecasts starts off with identifying your location and providing you information about the temperature, wind speed, and chances of rain in your area and vicinity. The location is pretty accurate while the weather update is also very good. You can easily see the forecast for the next six hours as far as rain is concerned as well straight-away. This is great if you need to do an outdoor errand but don't want to be outside when it's raining. The app also offers you the chance to contribute by confirming if the weather in your area is as shown by the app or not. It helps the app in getting feedback and using the feedback to provide better information.
The weather app also offers a detailed forecast as well. You can find a ten-day forecast which shows a graph of the temperature as well as the maximum and minimum temperature forecasts for each day. You can also get an hourly trend for temperature and this is very useful in deciding what time you should plan an outdoor activity. A written summary detailing the overall weather conditions is also offered for the next ten days. It enlists information about rain, clouds and wind speeds. The weather app also provides on-point details regarding each day's rain accumulation, current humidity, dew point, visibility, and pressure. This is great if you are planning to drive as this information can prove vital.
A sunrise and sunset feature is also offered by Weather Underground and you can know about day and night times perfectly with this feature. The app also offers health details like air quality including data on ozone, pollen and PM2.5, UV index and flu viruses in the area. You can also read about weather news, discussions and tropical cyclone details as well.
The app's most recent and most interesting feature is 'Smart Forecasts'. This feature allows you to inform the app of the activity you want to perform and provide a list of weather parameters like time, date, temperature, wind speed, gust speed, rain conditions etc. Once you save this custom forecast, the app will inform you of the ideal times in the coming week when you can perform this activity and the time window which you will get when you would have acceptable conditions or ideal conditions to perform the activity. This is great for planning different tasks as you can then use this information to plan your activities accordingly.
