Raise your hand if you have ever felt personally victimized by the weather. Yeah? Thought so. New York is a great city except for the whole “worst winter ever” part, especially when you spend half your morning looking at your phone’s weather app wondering what exactly it means when it says it’s 23 degrees outside.

Never freeze on your way to work because you thought you’d be safe without that extra sweater again. Pray no more to the MTA overlords that your commute will be delay free. Poncho is here for you.

A personalized weather service hacked together inside the studio at betaworks, Poncho takes the guesswork out of your morning routine. Sign up, fill out a little information about your day, and you’ll get your first text (or email!) the very next morning.

“It’s like being pals with the weather man,” writes Landrie Moore of Vanity Fair.

“You tell Poncho a little about you—what time you wake up, how you commute, what trains you take, etc.—and you get friendly, colloquial weather updates.”

Sign up for Poncho today, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $25 Fandango gift card! Weather forecasts AND weekend plans? Yep, Poncho has you covered.
