Updated onX Hunt Wind & Weather: Nearly 10X the Weather Stations

We’ve added Weather Underground stations into our Wind & Weather feature.

We all know that weather is a core aspect of the hunting season, and so we’re proud to announce the arrival of Weather Underground weather stations into our Wind & Weather feature in the onX Hunt App. Enjoy live weather reports, weather forecasts, wind direction, sunrise / sunset time and barometric pressure—all curated within the onX Hunt App to keep everything you need in one convenient place.

Prior versions of our Wind & Weather feature used reporting from airport weather stations around the country. Now, with the integration of Weather Underground’s vast network, we have incorporated nearly 10 times the number of weather stations. These new weather reports offer the most innovative forecast models available and cross-verify output with all of Weather Underground’s localized data points. It’s an unrivaled system of weather reporting that can provide the most accurate weather information possible—key for when you’re heading into the mountains or out to the tree stand for a long sit.
