The Visual Weather Report
Swackett is a fun new way to look at the weather. We convert complex weather data to easily-understood, visual weather reports designed for people of every age. Our unique approach is to combine raw weather data (current conditions, radar, and detailed forecasts) with thoughtfully crafted people symbols (called “peeps”) who always appear appropriately dressed for the weather.
If it happens to be cold outside, Swackett peeps appear dressed in winter hats, coats and boots. A hot, sunny day? Swackett peeps appear wearing shorts and sunglasses — and they even remember to bring along drinking water and sunblock. Rain? Swackett peeps appear with rain jackets and an umbrella.
This is a fun, fresh and truly useful weather report experience for people of any age.
Edge-to-edge weather visuals. Full 720 HD weather video and animations. Stunning image depth and clarity. All the weather information you could ever want on a minimalistic, ever expanding 3 x 4 grid.
The Grid: Weather
• Basic Forecast for current conditions, today, tonight and tomorrow. Weather watches and warnings (where available).
• Timelines: Weather forecast details for the next 24 hours, and for the next 5 days.
• Imagery: Full motion satellite and reflective radar imagery from AccuWeather: Local, regional, state and national full-motion radar images (where available) with rain, ice and snow color mapping.
The Grid: Fashion (The Visual Forecast)

• By popular request, you can now specify the sex of the peeps you see (or keep it random).
