Summer is just around the corner. And with all the planning we do with out itineraries, transportation, and budget, the weather is one thing that most often catches us off guard.

To address this concern, the Aboitiz Group has developed a weather app in cooperation with UnionBank, called WeatherPhilippines.

WeatherPhilippines can be downloaded from the Google Playstore and Apple’s App Store for FREE, and gives you accurate forecasts from around 800 weather stations across the country, some of which are housed at LBC branches.

The app displays detailed information and lets you track typhoons to see which areas will be affected and uses colors and warnings based on world meteorological standards for more emphasis. The labels are customizable per AWS site, and provides a simple overview of the weather for any specific area. Information can easily be shared

WeatherPhilippines is the private sector’s counterpart to PAGASA, the official source of weather data in the country.

Supporting this initiative are other private firms including SM Supermalls, ICTSI, Vista Land, NickelAsia, the Ayala Group and La Filipina Uy Gongco Corporation.
