AccuWeather.com, the World's Weather Authority, announced today the offering of beta access to the AccuWeather.com Enhanced Radar, just in time for the holidays. Holiday travelers will be able to plan accordingly with this improved radar which produces a detailed and accurate picture with a brand new interface.
Especially during the holiday season, travelers are at risk of weather delays and other unforeseen mishaps. The new AccuWeather.com Enhanced Radar will allow travelers to prepare for severe weather and avoid delays.
The new AccuWeather.com Enhanced Radar is an interactive web display that allows one to pan and zoom across the U.S. and Canada for radar and satellite data. Displaying hours of recent data, travelers can plot a destination to be displayed on the radar.
The new AccuWeather.com Enhanced Radar is unlike any other free radar available to the public at this time. The resolution upgrade is evident. AccuWeather.com's Enhanced Radar is 16 times more detailed than traditional radars seen throughout the internet because it makes advanced use of data from the Level II NEXRAD (Next Generation Radar) network - over 150 high-resolution Doppler weather radars which cover the entire continental United States as well as Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Guam.
"Checking AccuWeather.com's Enhanced Radar is another way to keep your family safe and sound as you travel to visit with friends and family this season," said Robert Henry, AccuWeather.com General Manager. "It's part of our ongoing effort to provide relevant and easy-to-use weather information when it matters most in the lives of our users."
