AccUcast to provide exclusive crowd-sourced weather feature

AccUcastUS: AccuWeather has introduced AccUcast, an interactive crowdsourcing feature available in the AccuWeather universal iOS app where users can share their local weather updates. Users can submit their local weather and hazard condition observations through the app's landing screen, map screen, settings menu, and AccuWeather MinuteCast screen. Weather conditions include clear, partly cloudy, cloudy, rain, snow, ice, or hail, and hazard conditions include damaging winds, slippery roads, flooding, and reduced visibility. User's weather report is visible on the map screen as a pin resembling a person, which distinguishes it from the other user-submitted weather observations on the map. In the zoomed-out view of the crowd-sourced weather map screen, users will see smaller color-coded condition points which can be animated globally. AccUcast is available for global locations through the AccuWeather universal iOS app.
