30 days of forecasting information helps users plan travel and events
State College, PA, May 8, 2013 - With the launch of the new AccuWeather 30-Day Forecast, the leading weather provider has become the only source for free, detailed, 30-Day forecasting information. The addition of this unique forecast allows users of AccuWeather.com and the AccuWeather.com mobile website greater insight in planning trips, sporting events, and outdoor events ahead of time with the Superior Accuracy™ of weather information that is the hallmark of AccuWeather.
"AccuWeather is excited about the 30-Day Forecast because it gives our users an unmatched level of insight in planning around weather conditions," Steven Smith, AccuWeather's Chief Digital Officer said. "Our audiences expect deeper and more accurate forecasts from AccuWeather and this is just another example of our company leading the way in meteorological innovation to better serve our customers."
The 30-Day Forecast provides the comprehensive level of detail one would expect in an AccuWeather forecast, including: high and low temperatures; the patented AccuWeather RealFeel® temperature; sky conditions and chance of precipitation; wind speed and direction; rain, snow, and ice amounts; thunderstorm probability; UV index; and much more.
The AccuWeather 30-Day Forecast is the result of many years of research, backed by great intellectual property and patents, a talented IT staff, and a team of more than 110 meteorologists.
In its 50-year history, AccuWeather has consistently pushed the envelope in long-range forecasting. In the 1960s, AccuWeather introduced the five-day forecast when the National Weather Service was offering only a two-day forecast. In later years, AccuWeather has been the first to introduce the 7-day, 10-day, 15-day, 25-day, and now the 30-day detailed forecasts. These forecasts have become industry standards with audiences in all media relying on longer-range forecasts.
