Weather & Radar provides an alerting system within the app ahead of both winter storms and severe weather in your area. Are your alerts turned on?
When wintry or severe weather is forecast for your area, which often happens in the spring time, Weather & Radar has you covered. Our top-of-the-line alerting system within our app can help give you peace of mind when beginning preparations prior to a weather event.
Using local radar data, weather models, and a threat assessment tool, the service is designed to provide you with the most accurate and localized alerts. Whether it’s heavy snow, freezing rain, hail or even tornadoes, our detailed storm alerts have your back to keep you in touch with the current or forecast weather situation.
As the forecast for wintry or stormy weather comes together, the alerting system can notify you up to 36 hours before the start of the event in your area. This notification will remain on your app home screen throughout the event as well to keep up to date.
Our app can show severe storm and winter weather alerts based on the forecast for your local area. You will be able to view these alerts up to 36 hours in advance as the forecast weather draws near.
Keeping notifications turned “on” also allows you to receive important weather information for your current location or even for a specific location you’re keeping an eye on. Are you in New York but have family in Texas? You can receive alerts for their specific location, so you have the latest on their weather situation even thousands of miles away.
Are your alerts switched "on" in the app but you still aren't receiving the notifications? Never fear! There is an extra phone setting you may have to check. First, make sure your phone is up to date with the latest system.
Android users: On your device, go to "Settings" and find "Apps." Scroll until you find the Weather&Radar app and click on it. Open the "Notifications" and switch "Allow Weather&Radar notifications" or "Show notifications" to on. Some users may have the extra step of opening "Notification categories" and making sure they are all toggled on.
iOS users: On your device, go to "Settings" then click on "Notifications." Scroll to find the Weather&Radar app and click on it. The first option once you click is "Allow notifications." Toggle this to on and you should be all set.
When you get the alert, you can keep up with the weather in real time as it approaches the area on our interactive WeatherRadar. This feature can show you the forecast radar up to 4 days out so you are always weather-aware!
