Technology News Website Techivus.com Releases Its Top 10 List Of Weather Apps For Consumers

Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 12, 2014

This rough winter continues to get rougher. Cold temperatures, snow, ice and freezing rain have taken a toll on the majority of the United States. The first day of spring isn’t until March 20th, and the way things have gone, many parts of the country will still be dealing with bad weather well after that date.

A good weather app on your smartphone or tablet can be the difference between being home and cozy in front of the fire or stranded in your car on the side of the road. Just ask the folks in Atlanta.
