Air Force relaunches weather Web site

The American Forces Network Weather Center at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska relaunched its weather Web site with a new focus on providing information to families with military service members deployed overseas, Air Force officials have said.

The Web site provides video forecasts of weather conditions in Europe, Southwest Asia and Southeast Asia. Two-day and three-day forecasts are available on the site, which was relaunched Jan. 5, the Air Force said Feb. 5.

The weather center uses weather observations and forecasts from military forecasters worldwide. Forecasters at the center also use satellite imagery and computer model weather data for the forecasts.

The center produces about 8,400 forecasts a month that cover 72 locations in 60 countries. The broadcasts are seen by nearly 1 million members of the military and their families in 175 countries, according to the Air Force.
