Singapore, 14 September 2015 – The Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) has launched a mobile weather website to make it easier for users of mobile devices to obtain weather information on the go. The mobile website, accessible at weather.gov.sg/mobile, gives users access to the latest national weather forecasts and warnings, and island-wide observations of rainfall, temperature, humidity and wind.
2. The website can detect a user’s location to automatically display the 2-hour nowcast for his current location. Favourite nowcast locations can also be set up for quick access. The website includes MSS’ popular rain radar information where users can view the current rain areas over the island and up to 240 km away from Singapore.
3. The new mobile weather website replaces MSS’ Weather@SG which has been in service since 2011. MSS is currently developing weather apps for the Android and Apple iOS platforms, which are scheduled to be released later this year.
