This will provide you with an advantage as you’ll be able to strategize accordingly while others will have zero clue.

You’ll need to wait till a minute before the second Storm Circle starts to close in after which you’ll be able to see the towers on the map.
Forecast Towers have a total of four fixed spawn locations and only three of them can spawn during a match. The locations which have spawned a tower will get marked on the map. Here are all the locations where Forecast Towers can be found in Chapter 5 Season 1 of Fortnite.

How to access Forecast Towers in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1
You should keep in mind that to access all the data that is inside these Forecast Towers, you’ll need to get the access key for it. To acquire it you will need to defeat two Legion Heavy Grunts and the Legion Tactical Elite NPC who is the mini boss who guides the Forecast Towers.
You should take down the grunts at first as they don’t have much health after which they can focus on defeating the mini-boss. Upon being defeated, the Legion Tactical Elite will drop an Epic rarity Striker Assault Rifle along with the Forecast Tower access key. You can retrieve the data from the towers using this key after which you’ll be able to know when the Storm Circles will occur before everyone for the rest of the match and get the upper hand.
