Welcome to the new WMC Action News 5 weather web page. It's been a long time coming, but is finally here. We hope you will enjoy this new design and find the weather information timely and useful. We spent a lot of time thinking about what we wanted to showcase and what information we think you want to see.
Notice at the very top of the page, to the right, is a live view of Storm Track Doppler 5 and a constant scroll of current conditions for various Mi-South communities.
Just below that, you'll see "Video Forecast." Members of the WMC Action News 5 storm tracking team update this video several times a day to bring you the latest forecast data and information. It's not just a clip taken from one of our newscast. This video is done specifically for our digital platforms and for you. In it, you'll find information about temperatures, approaching storm systems, an explanation of the day's forecast, and the seven day forecast.
Just below that you'll see current condition for the Memphis metro area, a detailed explanation of the forecast for the coming days, and an hour-by-hour forecast for the next 48 hours.
Just to the right of that you'll see the section for our weather blog. Andrew Kozak, Spencer Denton, and I will update this daily with interesting and helpful information regarding all aspects of weather. If' there's something about weather that you want to know, just leave a comment in the blog section and we'll answer that question in future blogs posts.
And just below that is a section for you to take part in. It's photos from you, our viewers. This is a place for you to share your weather pictures. Click on the My5 link and add your photo to our collection for others to see.
As you scroll down the page you'll notice the Interactive Radar section. When weather is moving through the Mid-South, you can track it from your computer or tablet. You can get an up close look at weather moving through your community or zoom out to see weather anywhere in the U.S. Everything from radar, to clouds, to severe watches, warnings,and even tropical systems can be tracked with this one tool. Give it a try. I think you'll find it to be informative and fun.
As you move on down the page you'll see the latest seven day forecast for Memphis and the Mid-South. This will help you plan your week or your weekend. It, too, is updated throughout the day to show our latest forecast.
To the right of that, you'll see a section to access the live video camera we have positioned around the Mid-South. It's like having a window right there on your screen. As you continue to scroll down on the right, you'll see the Twitter feeds for the storm tracking team. If you're on Twitter you can follow us. If not, our Twitter post are right there for you to see. This is very helpful information especially when significant storm systems are moving through the Mid-South.
And below that, you'll see bios for all the members of the team. In those bios you'll find links that will allow you to connect with us via Twitter, Facebook, or e-mail.
To the left of that is even more helpful information. Under Weather Images you'll have access to current and regional temperatures updated hourly. A regional satellite and radar image that updates every five minutes. There's a snapshot of the latest Futurecast model, a full screen version of our seven day forecast, and a time lapse view of Storm Track Doppler 5 showing the very latest radar data from the last 30 minutes. Below that is a detailed tutorial for owning and programming a weather radio.
