Highway Weather offers users the ability to obtain weather forecasts for their selected route based on the time they'd like to begin their journey. This video and article explain how to do so.
While Highway Weather has a feature that provides a "Best Time to Leave" suggestion for each route, we understand this suggestion may not always fully align with your plans.
As such, we offer a tool called the Time Slider that allows users to manipulate their starting date and time within a range from the present to seven days in advance.
As users slide the Time Slider, the Forecast Points and corresponding weather reports will change (based on the selected departure time) to match what conditions will be.
Manipulating Your Departure Time
Move the Time Slider at the bottom of your screen (see screenshot). You can set the departure time from "immediately", to up to seven days in advance. Departure times are available in one-hour increments.
Take a look at the screenshots below to get a better idea of this:

How to use the Time Slider to optimize your travel
Since Highway Weather provides up to seven days of future weather and road conditions, travelers that aren't necessarily constrained by specific schedules can use the departure-time dial to play around with different times to begin their travel. Often, flexible travelers will use this feature to see what options make for the most relaxed journeys on the road.
