STATE COLLEGE, Pa. April 4, 2012 - AccuWeather unveiled today the most comprehensive 25-day weather forecast available on any free website. The revolutionary tool includes such detail as daily high and low temperatures, precipitation, cloud cover, and weather records.
"The AccuWeather 25-Day Forecast is a scientific and meteorological breakthrough," said Dr. Joel N. Myers, AccuWeather Founder and President. "It is a revolutionary, innovative tool that you can use to make your personal and business plans anywhere you live or travel. For events already scheduled, such as weddings or sporting events, it gives you the best available, most accurate, detailed advance guidance on how to plan, given the weather forecast. It is truly one-of-a-kind."
In the 1960s, AccuWeather scientists pioneered the daily five-day forecast, at a time when the National Weather Service was offering only a daily two-day forecast. In later years, AccuWeather also became the first to introduce the seven-day, ten-day, and fifteen-day forecasts, including the fifteen-day, hour-by-hour forecast.
"In our almost 50 years of meteorological leadership, AccuWeather has consistently led and pushed the envelope in weather forecasting," Dr. Myers continued. "Our latest scientific innovation, the AccuWeather 25-Day Forecast, goes further out in time, with more specific detail, and for more locations than any other source."
