The new AccuWeather is a complete rewrite and redesign for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, bringing a fresh way to check out up-to-the-minute forecasts.

- RealFeel Temperature, a precise representation of how temperatures actually feel to people outdoors.
- Improved location management functionality
- Streamlined settings menu for easy customization and personalization
- Cortana integration e.g. "Cortana, What is my AccuWeather forecast?"
- Weather news and information
- Severe weather alerts and notifications
- Interactive weather animations illustrating current weather forecasts

- Animated weather radar and maps -Detailed day/night forecasts
- Local forecast summaries
- Forecast previews for the next 3-5 days
- The ability to set live tiles to multiple locations, so forecasts automatically update on the Start screen
AccuWeather is a pretty big name, as far as weather apps go, so it's good to see the developers embracing the Universal Windows Platform with a revamped app. If you were intrigued by the recent PC release and want to check the app out on your Windows Phone, you can grab the new app from the Windows Store at the link below.
