All Weather conditions affect human behaviors and the growing number of Mobile Weather Applications (MWAs) has amplified this effect. Yet, little is known about how human seek to actively control their behavior by appropriating mobile technology to anticipate changing weather conditions. Guided by Anticipatory Behavioral Control Theory (ABCT), this study endeavors to bride the abovementioned knowledge gap by investigating how the interface design and usage of MWAs would impact the relationship between abnormal weather conditions and users’ movement patterns. From analyzing panel data collected on the hourly movement trajectories of over 1.95 million anonymous mobile phone users over a 2-month period, we strive to shed light on the moderating influence of content representation and usage intensity of MWAs on the relationship between weather conditions and human behaviors.
