The Weather Network has launched the Severe Weather Outlook tool, a supplementary information resource for local forecasts on desktop and mobile web. This product will help users prepare for significant or severe weather, such as thunderstorms, heavy rain, snow and freezing rain that may result in weather warnings or alerts being issued. The launch of this tool is another important step for the company as it continues to deliver on its promise to provide your weather when it really matters.
To help users plan ahead and be prepared for potentially dangerous weather conditions, consumers will now see at a glance a summary of the Severe Weather Outlook below their city’s short-term forecast. The Severe Weather Outlook shows the risk of severe or impactful weather over a 3 day period and presents the information on a local risk scale from 0-10. In addition to the severe weather risk, users will also find additional information such as advice on actions that should be taken for safety, local maps, relevant weather videos and emergency preparedness tips.
