Remember when you were a kid, and your mom or dad would say, “Don’t forget the umbrella, because it will rain tonight”? And you thought, “No way, the sun is shining,” and paid the price by getting soaked?
Well, you’re a grown up now, and need to remember when and if to move your car as well. What if your morning weather forecast also reminded you that alternate side parking is suspended and you don’t need to worry about it — which would have come in handy last month, when that happened nearly every day?
Enter Poncho, a personalized weather service with a personality. Instead of providing you with more data and visualizations to interpret, it gets to know you — when you wake up, how you commute to work, if you have pets to walk — and then gives you personalized advice delivered straight to your inbox or phone. There’s no app to install, no graphs to interpret. Poncho will tell you just what you need to know to get your day started, and nothing more.
How it works: Simply visit Poncho, then enter your name and answer a few questions about your daily routine. Then decide if you want your forecast delivered to your inbox or via text message (or both!), and you’re set! You will start receiving forecasts the very next day.
