GERMANTOWN, Md. -- February 6, 2013

From the developers of WeatherBug^® comes the totally refreshed WeatherBug app
for Google Chrome. Designed to be both beautiful and informative, the latest
app from WeatherBug features a new modern design, larger fonts for improved
readability, and a realistic view of current weather with live images from
cameras within the exclusive WeatherBug network. The app’s streamlined,
clickable interface makes it easy to quickly get the real-time local
conditions and severe weather alerts you need to Know Before™ and plan for the
weather ahead.

The redesigned WeatherBug for Google Chrome app is the newest addition to the
WeatherBug app family. WeatherBug apps are available for mobile phones and
tablets on Android, iOS, Windows Phone and the new Windows 8. For computer
users, the WeatherBug website and popular desktop app provide up-to-the-minute
information and alerts.

WeatherBug for Google Chrome provides essential weather updates, forecasts and
severe weather warnings:

  *Neighborhood-level Forecasts: WeatherBug exclusively provides real-time
    weather information for  where you live and work from 10,000 local
    stations. And with WeatherBug for Google Chrome, you are just a click away
    from detailed real-time weather data -- in addition to hourly and extended
    forecast information -- for all your favorite locations.
  *Weather Warnings: Know Before™ when severe weather threatens. When minutes
    matter, WeatherBug delivers alerts from the National Weather Service (NWS)
    and Dangerous Thunderstorm Alerts (DTAs) exclusive to WeatherBug apps. On
    average, DTAs provide significantly faster warning times for tornadoes and
    similar severe weather events with lightning.
  *Radar and Traffic: Is a storm heading your way? Check the radar to see
    what conditions to expect or review the radar animation to see what’s just
    past. With another click, see if you’ll have traffic delays before heading
    out on the roads. Plus, weather enthusiasts can select from 10 animated
    weather images, including temperature, wind speed, humidity, pressure,
    satellite views and more.
  *Live Cameras: Know the weather outside without leaving your home with
    WeatherBug. The virtual weather window on WeatherBug for Google Chrome
    showcases the WeatherBug camera closest to your favorite location. The app
    makes it easy to add locations to feature other live shots from cameras
    around the country, including beaches and stadiums.

WeatherBug for Google Chrome is powered by the largest weather monitoring,
lightning detection and climate observation networks from Earth Networks -
WeatherBug. This global network provides extensive weather details and
forecasts for over 35,000 locations, including 10,000 neighborhood-level,
professional-grade sensors available only to WeatherBug users.
