Launch of forums announced the launch of the Forums, a place for threaded discussion on a variety of topics. The Forums attracted thousands of users while still in Beta testing and is already proving to be a very popular element for the online community.
“People turn to for the best in all things weather, so we’re happy to add the Forums to the features we offer our users,” said Robert Henry, General Manager for “The weather has major impact on all of our lives and our users have embraced the opportunity to discuss their questions and observations with each other and with the expert meteorologists that visit and moderate our forums.”
The Forums appeals to die-hard weather hobbyists and casual weather watchers alike, with a range of groups including: Your Weather Stories; Astronomy; Kids’ Weather; Weather Questions; Weather on TV/Movies/Internet; and The AccuWeather Insider. A tongue-in-cheek appreciation of weather is evident on the board  — many users proudly display their hometown weather with an netWeather widget in their profile, and users are ranked from “whirlwind” to “F5 Superstorm” depending on number of posts.
All users of the free site are able to visit and read the Forums, and only a short, simple registration is required before posting.
