STATE COLLEGE, Pa., Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AccuWeather Global Weather Center – With the likelihood of humidity much of the week and potential for showers Saturday night into Sunday morning that could dampen New York City's Fashion Week, AccuWeather, the global leader in weather information and digital media, is there to make sure attendees are covered with minute-by-minute forecasts with Superior Accuracy™ for their exact location.
With patented AccuWeather MinuteCast®, Fashion Week attendees can check for precipitation updates to ensure inclement weather doesn't stop them from looking their best – a must-have tool for planning their day, and outfit, as they travel between venues in New York City. With the potential for rain Saturday night into early Sunday, New York Fashion Week's fashion-forward crowd can know if they need to come prepared with any necessary accessories that may complement their outfit as they arrive or leave each venue.
According to AccuWeather, while New York's week-long event will start off warm and humid, late Saturday into Sunday morning (September 10-11) will bring a chance of showers, followed by a welcome break in humidity going into Monday and Tuesday.
The AccuWeather MinuteCast Minute-by-Minute Storm Squad will be on-site at various locations during New York Fashion Week with umbrellas to educate attendees about the AccuWeather app and help shield them from the sun and ensure they do not get caught in inclement weather traveling from Skylight at Moynihan Station to Skylight Clarkson Square.
