The original WeatherCall personal severe weather warning notification system, trusted by hundreds of thousands, is now available in a mobile version.
Highly site-specific NWS severe weather warnings for mobile users.
The flagship WeatherCall @Home system continuously monitors the National Weather Service's NOAA weatherwire and compares a permanent address to the location of the warning area polygon, immediately calling any type of telephone to deliver a specific warning message.
Different from ALL other mobile weather products on the market either free or fee-based, WeatherCall ToGo's "Follow Me" capability makes it the only user-centric personal storm warning service available anywhere.
Using the same technology, WeatherCall ToGo monitors the continuously updating location of a smart phone and delivers a warning notification via a phone call, SMS text, or email if the phone is within 1 mile or less of an NWS warning area. With the touch of a button, the user can see a Google map of their position and view the warning polygon or can read the full text of the warning.
Nearby Lightning Strike Notification automates the "Flash-To-Bang" rule
Stop taking chances wondering whether lightning is too close to you. An optional subscription to lightning notification provides a virtual 6-mile safety radius (recommended by NWS) around your smart phone's reported location. When the first lightning strike inside this circle occurs, you are notified immediately by either phone call or SMS text to suspend activities and seek shelter in a safe place. After the lightning-producing storm has exited your 6 mile safety zone, you can choose to receive an "all clear" notification after either 15 or 30 minutes.
The WeatherCall ToGo, WeatherCall Lightning, and WeatherCall ToGo Plus services perform optimally on smart phones which can receive SMS text messages, and have location capabilities, such as the iPhone and Android platforms.
