HOURLY WEATHER FORECAST GRAPHS

Did you know...

That National Weather Service forecasts are done with HOURLY precision?

That every forecast is made down to a 2.5 km precision (in other words, the forecast on one side of town is not necessarily the same as the other side of town)?  

That you have access to these hourly forecasts for your exact location? 

Well it's all true!  The National Weather Service provides 7 day weather forecasts for hourly conditions for your exact location, and updates the forecast multiple times per day.  The hourly weather forecast graph is an easy method to view the hourly conditions forecast at your location.  This web page is the first in a series of internet articles intended to introduce you to some of the services available on the NWS website with which you may not be so familiar, but you may find extremely useful.  Check back to www.weather.gov/topeka in the coming weeks for information on additional services!
