The dog days of summer are here! Grab a cold drink, relax, and check out these latest new features in Weather Defender:


Relative Humidity Layers

Relative Humidity Plots

Just when you think it couldn't get any hotter, we throw some humidity into the mix. But seriously, RH Plots show you the level of moisture in the air--the fuel of thunderstorm development.

Wind Chill in July? No, you probably won't be making use of this layer for a few months. But we're just trying to do our part to cool you down this summer.
