UNDATED -- We all know how rapidly changing weather can affect our lives and our plans.

The News On 6 WARN Team has some of the most advanced weather technology available.

In addition to what you can see on the air, there are interactive radar tools available on NewsOn6.com.

You can use NewsOn6.com to find out what's going on out there anytime, day or night.

The U Control: Weather Center is unlike anything you've ever seen - you literally take the controls!

When severe weather moves across the area, you can really see the radar at work.

The U Control: Weather Center lets you monitor conditions of a specific location just by zeroing in on it with the search tool.

You can change the view from satellite to map or terrain. You can see current temperatures and get a five-day forecast. You'll also have watches or warnings at your fingertips.

Another state-of-the art feature on NewsOn6.Com is the U Control: Street Level Radar.

It's similar to the U Control: Weather Center, but this one lets you zoom in right down to where you live.

You can even put the radar in motion and see the storm's path.

The U Control: Street Level Radar also lets you change the transparency so you can see the details of the map underneath the storm.

A color guide helps you understand exactly what you're looking at.

Our online WARN Interactive Radar is another comprehensive weather tool at your fingertips.

By simply choosing a map, you can see the most current weather data. There are also boxes at the top of the page that allow you to learn more about a storm, including storm track, rotation, hail, and warnings.

Visit the Storm Zone for all kinds of helpful information about severe weather and winter weather.

While you're online, download I-News. It's a free desktop application that provides the latest breaking weather and news directly to your computer's desktop.

These are just some of the weather features you can find by exploring the NewsOn6.com weather section.
