One of our most-requested features has consistently been to provide real-time weather forecasts and information. Today, we are happy to fill this void with the announcement of BoulderCAST LiveCAST, a real-time weather display and forecast product tailored specifically to the Boulder/Denver area. In fact, LiveCAST is already available! Read on for all the details.

With the launch of our LiveCAST suite, we’ll always be there to answer these questions for you! At the heart of LiveCAST is a short-term forecast product, providing an hour-by-hour look at the next 12 hours for the Boulder/Denver area. Included in the forecast is cloud cover, temperature, precipitation chance and type, as well as wind speed and direction. The forecast graphic updates each hour using the latest model and observational data from the region. The forecast for the next 12 hours is shown below:
