One of the best weather apps for Windows Phone, AccuWeather, has received a new update today that includes MinuteCast, which offers a way for users to learn how much rain or other kinds of precipitation is expected at a location down to the minute.

As explained on the app's page:

"MinuteCast – minute by minute precipitation forecasts for the next two hours hyper-localized to your exact street address. Includes precipitation type and intensity, and start and end times for precipitation. Available for the Continental United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, and Japan."

In addition, the update includes a way to launch the AccuWeather app from the user's current GPS location or a favorite location from their default live tile. Finally, fans of transparent live tiles can now check out this feature on AccuWeather.

What do you think of these new features? Thanks to Prashant for the heads up!
