The government has launched a mobile app so that weather information can reach to people
The Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune and India Meteorological Department (IMD) have jointly designed this app. It was launched by Union Minister Harsh Vardhan. The 'Weather' app is available on the Google Play Store and Apple's App Store.
According to the government's claim, this app will currently show the weather conditions of 200 cities but will start releasing weather forecast reports for about 450 cities in India in the next 7 days. A 24-hour weather forecast will be given on this app. Notifications will be updated 8 times a day on this app.
