Hello All !

I've been using AccuWeather on my iPhone for some time now, and it works pretty well.

I just wonder what are the units on the Weather Alarms screen for the different alarms that can appear: Rain, Wind, Ice, Snow ... (that's what I saw so far smile.gif ) : I guess it's the American system (inches for rain, snow, ice, miles/hr) for wind but I'm not sure.

Also, if it's the case, it seems there's a bug in there since everything else in my app is displayed in metric units (as per my preferences), except that. Where can I report such a bug ?

Thanks for your help,
Moonbird

If you go into your Preferences, you can see what your units are set to. We should state them though. In the future, click on Contact Us on AccuWeather.com to open a ticket with support staff.

My units are set on the metric system in my Preferences. But it seems to me that the units used on the Weather Alarms screen are in the English system.

Can I double check the values on the Web ? Next time I see an alarm with, let's say, "Rain 2,5" I'd like to go check on the Web and see there the value displayed and compare it with my iPhone's.

Thanks for your help,

Sure, they should be the same values, unless the forecast updates are off.
