Description

A simple yet powerful app that combines science with simplicity so you can be notified of real-time severe weather warnings that affect your locations. NOAA Weather Alerts has been updated for iOS 10 and beyond. With this major update comes a sleek new design, new alerts, and new weather radar. NOAA Weather Alerts sends you storm-based (or polygon) alerts via push notification so you can be notified of real-time severe weather warnings that affect your locations. Storm-based (or polygon) alerts help reduce false alarms from county-based alerts by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. Why is that important? Because county-based alerts warn you even if your location in the county is not within the threatened area, effectively giving you a false alarm. Receive storm-based push notifications for 45 different types that focus on the most Severe Weather Warnings. View alerts on the weather map to see severe weather warning boxes where dangerous weather is happening. Tap the alert to view its info. • Tornadoes and Thunderstorm watches and warnings • Flood watches and warnings • Hurricane and Tropical Storm forecast tracks • Hurricane and Tropical Storm watches and warnings • Storm Tracks with detailed storm information (requires Future Weather in-app subscription) • Winter storm watches and warnings • Marine and coastal alerts New Layers on the weather map let you see recent weather activity from the last 6 to 12 hours. • Radar • Clouds • Clouds & Radar together • Wind Speed • Snow Cover • Temperatures • Water Temperatures • Road Weather • Earthquakes • Future Weather (in-app purchase subscription required) • Lightning Alerts and notifications (in-app purchase subscription required) Enhance your app with a Future Weather auto-renewing subscription for purchase within the app for $0.99/month.

    I really liked that this app had customizable alerts and am sorry to see that they were removed. Guess it’s time to look for another app like always. 😢 Just saw that Storm Shield app has the alert customizations in case anyone needs that option.

    Seriously, pay monthly for storm tracks and lightning? Try Wundermap or WeatherBug, they come for free.
  • Just blew 1.99

    No good unless you don’t mind paying 99 for each function you want to add. Not just paying 99 once, but once a month, you guys must be on crack. Everybody wants us to do monthly subscriptions and before long you have hundreds a month for technology bills. BS.
  • Used to be good

    When I first installed this app it had the ability to choose what alerts to wake me up with. Now, over the updates I cannot. I hate getting non applicable alerts when I sleep, etc. Now it’s uninstalled.

    Terrible weather app! Offered it 1/2 price, and that's what I got, 1/2 of an app!!! Sent in for app support four different times and did not receive ANY response. Has no alert sounds, has no alert type events to select. One star is too high to rate this app!
  • Please add times to storm tracks!!!

    Love the app. Would be really useful to add time to the storm track bands rather than have to play the animation. The old Storm app used to do this and I used it frequently when mountain biking. Thx !!!

  • CAN NOT SELECT SPECIFIC ALERTS AS ADVERTISED

    The preview slides in the App Store show a screen that you can select which alerts to turn on and which to ignore. THAT IS NOT AVAILABLE WITH THIS APP.

  • A review that’s 3 years old

    Why would you continue to post a 3 year old review? The compatible devices for this app that you list didn’t exist then! That review is misleading to people! Still, some of the newer devices, your app doesn’t work on.
