Weather the day with confidence with your own weather and weather prediction information – pinpoint accuracy right from your own backyard. The AcuRite Digital Weather Center uses patent-pending Precision Forecasting to provide your personal forecast of morning, noon & night (4-hour, 4 to 8-hour and 8 to 12-hour) weather conditions.
