Lycos Prepares People for the Zombie Apocalypse (and Bad Weather) with Mobile App!

WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Halloween, Lycos, Inc. is proud to feature the only weather app designed to increase your chances of survival during the occasional zombie apocalypse: Weather Zombie

The free Weather Zombie app sets itself apart from other weather apps right from the start. Whether you're trying to figure out if it's going to rain today or if you'll have to deal with the increased smell of decay due to an unprecedented heat wave, this is the weather app for you.

In addition to monstrously handsome zombie forecasters, the Weather Zombie app features deliciously deranged weather icons (including a zombie sun that munches on clouds which cry black tears), comics starring the Weather Zombies and various cloud formations, and other bonus content. Weather Zombie provides location detection by GPS or Internet, hourly and 7-day forecasts, radar for the United States and most of Canada, and much more.

Weather Zombie is available through iTunes. Android and web users can get their daily dose of Weather Zombie through which features a mobile-friendly design and bonus wallpapers. People who make and host websites on can keep their visitors up to date on the forecast through the Weather Zombie add-on now available via our new website builder Zeeblio.

Weather Zombie will also be sponsoring and participating in The Devil's Chase 6.66 Miler on October 29th held in Salem, Massachusetts. If you want to get in the Halloween spirit or just have a good time - look for (or run away from) Weather Zombie at the run!
