WSI announced modifications to its Hubcast product today, unveiling Hubcast 2.1.

The subscription weather software, which tracks lightning strikes and issues alerts, will be expanded to provide flight-tracking service to give ground operation personnel aircraft situational display capabilities.

The company said in a release that it will allow flight staff to monitor airport, as well as national, weather conditions alongside arriving, departing and enroute flights.

The service also provides access to WSI NOWrad radar, 100 NM radius real-time lightning and Echo Tops, which tracks the movement of storms.

“This most recent WSI Hubcast version was specifically designed for aviation professionals who previously had to subscribe to three or more different services to get this level of functionality,” said Paul Devlin, Hubcast product manager.
