“It’s live programing right there on your phone,” meteorologist Nick Kosir told Fox News Digital. “It’s so cool.”
The free service will take a state-of-the-art approach to forecasting, using multiple radar systems to inform its audience of all-things weather. FOX Weather has hired meteorologists, anchors, and reporters from across the country, bringing perspective and expertise from every weather scenario Americans can face.
“Viewers can expect to see a friendly, welcoming face bring them their weather forecast. We are going to take weather and science, which can be complicated, and make it easy to understand. Our FOX Weather community will get their forecast in the palm of their hand, making weather very personal and helpful,” meteorologist Britta Merwin, who was a popular local weather personality in Houston before joining FOX Weather, told Fox News Digital.
The FOX Weather app features a cutting-edge 3D radar and the unprecedented FOX FutureView, a tool that allows users to plan several months ahead by keeping track of advanced weather forecasts.
“If you’re thinking about having Thanksgiving with grandma in Miami, within the app you’ll be able to put in Miami and the date for Thanksgiving, and we will automatically send you updates on the forecast for Miami and what’s going to happen for Thanksgiving. Nobody else is doing that,” Jason Frazer, who came to FOX Weather from WKYC in Cleveland, told Fox News Digital.
FOX Weather also uses new technology to deliver severe weather alerts for tornadoes, thunderstorms, flooding, and other weather conditions that will help keep users safe and informed. The ad-supported service is completely free for users.
