A computing device (e.g., a cellular phone, a smartphone, a desktop computer, a laptop computer, a tablet computer, a portable gaming device, a watch, etc.) may provide navigation and weather information to assist a user of the computing device in selecting a route to a destination. The computing device may execute an application that provides both navigation functionality and periodic weather updates. A user of the computing device may input a destination into the application, and the application may output a route to the destination as well as weather information for locations along that route. As the user moves along the route, the application may receive updated weather information for the updated locations and alerts warning about extreme weather. The application may receive, via the computing device, the updated weather information in response to a periodic request, automatically (e.g., in response to a weather alert being issued), or a combination thereof. As a result, the application may output (e.g., visually, auditorily, tactilely, etc.) current weather information about the user’s current and upcoming locations, thus providing the user a stream of accurate weather information.
