Weather Underground announces new custom weather tools for the travel industry
Tuesday 9, November 2010
Weather Underground, the world’s first online weather service, announced today the availability of unique weather tools for travel companies wanting to provide custom weather information to their clients.
These new weather tools provide businesses with any level of dynamic weather content; from custom weather widgets to full weather web pages and printed forecast flyers.
The customizable forecast flyer provides local weather data in a printable format and benefits hotel guests, conference attendees or any clients with limited internet access.
The custom capabilities allow businesses to include their logo and desired location. In addition, the weather flyer provides full international coverage and consists of hourly, extended, regional and world forecasts, as well as astronomical and historical data.
Weather Underground already provides custom weather stickers and full web pages, delivering up-to-the-minute weather information including current conditions, 5-day forecasts, severe weather warnings, animated radar, interactive flash maps and travel specific weather data. These new tools offer a higher level of customization and utilize the most up-to-date digital technologies to make implementation simple.
“Travel is affected by weather more than any other industry so Weather Underground has developed these tools to help travel companies interact with their clients and distribute valuable weather content,” said Alan Steremberg, President and co-founder of Weather Underground. “With the world’s largest network of personal weather stations and the largest historical weather database at our disposal, we offer the best custom weather solutions for the travel industry – whatever size of business.”
