Since 1994 when WKYC-TV Channel 3 launched a new weather forecasting feature, Stormtracker 3, to pinpoint the directions and locations of severe weather systems in certain neighborhoods, the importance of getting weather alerts out to you first, fast, and accurately, has been of prime importance to them. The WKYC-TV Channel 3 website, launched in 1999, has allowed Channel 3 Weather meteorologists to alert even more people about severe weather and they have developed the neat Channel 3 Weather Wizard 2.0 software program to alert you, within minutes, right on your desktop with a desktop crawl, about the latest breaking news and weather warnings. Channel 3's Weather Wizard will provide you with information about your current conditions by displaying temperature, wind speed and direction, and humidity etc., on its compact user friendly blue interface. Within minutes of being issued, you will receive severe weather warnings and you can set up your own weather web page and have access to weather information for the whole of the U.S. Weather resources are also available for download on WKYC-TV Channel 3's website including a Storm Spotters Basic Guide, and a Storm Spotters Advanced Guide. Also, their weather team encourages you to send in your own storm and severe weather reports from around Northern Ohio. As a Channel 3 Weather Warrior, you will be helping Channel 3's meteorologists in determining where the worst weather is occurring, allowing them to warn others.
