Future Radar significantly expands AccuWeather’s advanced weather map features by providing detailed, interactive forecasts on the progression and intensity of rain, snow, and ice, for the next two hours.  By accessing maps, users can instantly see oncoming storms – through the use of vibrant colors, movement, and timeframe animation – in a modern, intuitive interface. The interactive maps also give users the ability to pan, zoom, and view the future movement and intensity of precipitation anywhere in the country.

AccuWeather’s Future Radar is free to users on the AccuWeather iOS app, located in the map section. They are accessible by simply tapping the “View Map” icon option in the top left or bottom right of the home screen and select between “Past” and “Future” Radar views.  Users can also instantly access Future Radar for their location by swiping right on the AccuWeather iOS app home screen.

AccUcast is an exciting, interactive crowdsourcing feature available in the AccuWeather iOS app where users can share local weather updates.  With AccUcast, users can report local weather conditions, in addition to hazards like damaging winds, slippery roads, flooding, and reduced visibility, sharing their updates with others. AccuWeather’s exclusive crowdsourcing tool also presents current weather conditions submitted by users in an interactive global animation map display. 

AccuWeather’s free AccuWeather iOS app also features AccuWeather MinuteCast, providing patented minute-by-minute precipitation forecasts for the next two hours, hyper-localized to each user’s exact street address or GPS location.
