In concert with the expected surge in road travel during the holiday week, The Weather Channel has teamed with Subaru of America to add a “Driving Difficulty Index” to the network’s mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
The map, previously available only as the Commuter Forecast at Weather.com, adds a layer showing users where they are likely to encounter hazardous road conditions.
