Full Screen Weather Looks to Storm the iPad

Weather Underground launched a weather-tracking tool that allows users to use the Google Maps interface, zoom in to a location and view granular data from its network of more than 16,000 personal weather stations.

Full Screen Weather also offers a high-resolution precipitation layer (radar) or cloud layer (satellite) plotted on the map, as well as clickable severe weather alerts.

While Full Screen Weather works on any PC or laptop, the company said it was designed with touch-screen devices such as the new Apple iPad in mind.

Weather Underground president Alan Steremberg said:

At Weather Underground, we continually embrace the latest technology trends and adapt to meet our users’ changing needs. Our Full Screen Weather map provides a simple yet engaging way for people to view weather information across a multitude of devices.

The launch of Full Screen Weather comes during the same week that AccuWeather.com‘s nearly 70,000 Facebook fans and more than 1,200 Twitter followers received access to its new beta site.
