New Ways to Search on Windows 8: The Weather App Powered by Bing

Earlier this month we kicked off our series of posts highlighting new ways you can search on Windows 8. Today we’re back with an app that is sure to become an indispensable part of your day: The Weather App powered by Bing. With Windows 8, you are a tap away from knowing if you need to pack an umbrella or can leave it home.

The Weather app offers a beautiful preview of current weather conditions, helping you prepare for the latest conditions with hourly, daily and 10-day forecasts. You can dive deep into the local weather with historical trends that capture annual temperature, rain, and snow. Harnessing the best of Windows 8, the Weather App puts the information you care about front and center so you can prepare for your day at a glance.

Sourced from leading services including Accuweather, Weather Decision Technologies, The Weather Channel, Foreca, Weather Underground and Weather2Travel, the Weather App brings together all the information you need to plan your day or your next holiday. Check out the following video of Stefan walking you through the app.

Check back here tomorrow where we’ll highlight another of our favorite apps on Windows 8.
