Hurricane Weatherman is designed for all those who like to watch the tropics like a hawk, in anticipation of the next big storm


Norman, OK, August 12, 2011- Weather Decision Technologies, Inc., a global leader in providing state-of-the-science weather detection, alerting, and forecasting systems, today announced the launch of a new reality weather game called Hurricane Weatherman, now available on the iTunes store at: bit.ly/Wx-Man or at WxManGame.com

Hurricane Weatherman is designed for all those who like to watch the tropics like a hawk, in anticipation of the next big storm. The game is also for players who feel they can forecast better than the professionals. The game was co-developed by WDT with web and mobile based software leader, Perennial Systems.

Hurricane Weatherman allows you to make a forecast for all the named storms in the Atlantic basin. Simply register to play along and then make your forecasts for how strong the various named storms will get, when they will be named, and if they will make landfall in the U.S. (Continental U.S.).

  • Keep track of your forecasts by checking out the leader board and compare your forecasts to what the experts say this year will hold for the entire season.
  • Gamers can update their forecast at any time, with the exception of forecasting a storm to be named on the current day, so participants need to stay aware of what is happening in the Atlantic.
  • Players can get alerts sent to them, including notifications about new storms that are forming and being watched by the National Hurricane Center.

"Players can Score points for getting close to the date the storm is named, the maximum category that it reaches, and for forecasting whether the storm will make landfall in U.S.," said JT Johnson, Chief Technology Officer at WDT.

Pricing and Availability
Hurricane Weatherman is available immediately on the iTunes store on iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad.

The iPhone/iPod Touch version can be downloaded at: bit.ly/Wx-Man or at WxManGame.com

The iPad version can be downloaded at: bit.ly/WxManHD or at WxManGame.com
