If you’ve found Microsoft’s Weather app not quite doing the job for you, Accuweather’s newest update might be right up your alley. We got en email from Accuweather telling us that their Windows 10 app is being updated with support for the AccUcast feature that’s been on their Android and iOS apps for quite a while now.
Through the AccUcast feature, Windows users can submit their weather (clear, partly cloudy, cloudy, rain, snow, ice, or hail) and hazard (damaging winds, slippery roads, flooding, and reduced visibility) condition observations for their GPS location.
The AccUcast feature allows users crowd-source information about local weather in order to quickly update weather forecasts and give other local users some help as they plan out their day. The feature may have taken a little while to get around to Windows 10, but it’s better late than never.
We were told that the feature was rolling out already, but it’s nowhere in the patch notes and we weren’t able to find it in the app just yet. Keep your eye on the Windows Store to see when the update is ready to go.
