A new tool to help you write smarter about the weather is making its debut in California
The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday approved a new program to help consumers write about the climate.
The program, called Weather Forecast, is a partnership between The Weather Company and the University of California, Berkeley, the university said in a statement.
The new tool will be available for $3.99 per month.
The program also includes a suite of other tools to help people understand and prepare for future climate-related events, the statement said.
The company, which will be funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, said the app will allow users to generate weather forecasts for a wide range of locations, from California to the Caribbean and across the globe.
It’s part of a push by The Weather Co., which operates the popular app Weather Underground and is one of the biggest publishers of weather forecasts in the world.
It was also the first company to launch a Weather Forecasting app for smartphones.
In February, the company said it was launching its first app for iOS.
The Weather Forecaster app for Apple iOS is currently available for free.
It was recently acquired by Amazon, which also owns the app.
