With severe weather season approaching, we thought we would introduce you to our interactive radar. Now, you can activate storm tracker icons from the left side of the map. Once activated you will see these icons appear during a storm providing even more information about the current weather conditions.
So what do these new features do? Well, you can track a storms progress, max rain output per hour, and wind direction.
Another great and useful addition is to be able to track the time of arrival for the storm. It will estimate when the storm will cross a particular landmark or city giving you time to prepare for the storm.
I suggest playing around with the radar for a bit, you can expand the map to show the whole United States to catch any storms happening in other parts of the country. Access our weather page right here. And this feature is also mobile friendly.
While these are all awesome things, they should in no way be the only thing you use in watching severe weather. NWS radio or one of the local TV stations should also be a tool for keeping you and your loved ones safe.
Don’t forget about our regular features as well! A 5 day forecast in real-time showing the highs and lows for the day, a precipitation chart, and any severe weather updates from the National Weather Service.
