The Weather Channel Windows 8 app debuts

While Windows 8 is still gaining more and more apps for its Windows Store, there remains a number of high profile mobile apps that have yet to make their Windows 8 debut, such as Facebook and Spotify. Today, a very well known app has made its debut in the Windows Store.

The free Weather Channel app for Windows 8 can now be downloaded from the storefront, offering users access to accurate weather information and forecasts. The Weather Channel app claims they have over 200 meteorologists working to bring weather information around the world.

The app itself offer current and upcoming weather information in the familiar "Modern" UI interface for Windows 8, along with real time weather and radar maps. The street maps are provided by Microsoft's own Bing service. This first version seems pretty bare bones at the moment in terms of extra features but its likely that more will be added in the coming months.

The Weather Channel has released a version of its app for Windows Phone users for some time now, and Nokia Lumia users have had first crack at a number of extra features that didn't make it into the version available for other Windows Phone devices until later.
