AccuWeather has had a busy summer -- from hosting conferences to launching new apps worldwide.
Last week, the Ferguson Township company hosted the American Meteorology Society summer community meeting. Meteorologists came together at the Nittany Lion Inn to discuss how to improve products to help their audiences, and AccuWeather founder Joel Myers was the keynote speaker.

Golf outing aids cancer care
A new women's-only golf outing is set to benefit cancer care.
The Pink Ribbon Golf Classic will benefit cancer care as proceeds go to the purchase of a new screening and diagnostic imaging device at the Mount Nittany Health Breast Care Center. The machine creates a three-dimensional image of the breast to help detect cancer earlier.
The event will take place Sept. 8 at the Penn State Golf Courses in the format of a four-person scramble and will have a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m.
Committee member Carolyn Follett said 92 women have registered, close to the 110 to 130 goal.
"We're getting a good response," Follett said.
She said the classic is an extension of the former Geri Reeve Open.
"It's kind of a continuation of that tournament and a continuation of supporting breast cancer care," Follett said. "Hopefully, we'll have a beautiful day again. We've had a lot of gorgeous days in the past."
