The Superior Accuracy™ of AccuWeather forecasts has allowed the company to create a strong brand that has saved lives, protected property and placed pinpoint weather information in the hands of consumers. AccuWeather has been recognized for its innovative and valuable displays and presentation of the weather to the public and private sectors.

AccuWeather's forecasts are the most localized and most customized and it is the only source for day-by-day forecasts 45 days in advance. AccuWeather is also prepared to launch MinuteCast™, which will provide minute-by-minute forecasts for every location in the United States and Canada.

The new AccuWeather Channel will be focused on helping people make better decisions in planning to improve life and safety.  It will provide highly localized and customized forecasts, and will round out AccuWeather's suite of services to the public. AccuWeather already provides weather forecasts by smartphones, tablets, AccuWeather.com web and mobile sites, radio, AccuWeather-affiliated television stations, and over 500 newspapers nationwide.
