Severe weather alerts-CRUCIAL
This new update is way more advanced than the previous version and is miles ahead of the local competition. Setting up the custom alerts for multiple locations is a great way to know if your loved ones are in the path of bad weather. The interactive radar is really good, and the video forecasts are by my favorite meteorologists
Miss old app
Oh why, why did I update 😡👎🏽👎🏽. This updated version is a 5 steps backwards. Using a photo for your weekly and local weather report is a joke right? And how is a photo from a noon video considered a "current condition"? The radar map is now missing the Storm tracker!!!!! Why would take out the reason you CALLED yourselves the "storm tracker8 app" ? That arrow pointing where a severe storm is headed has saved my tail many times fishing the river and has helped me photograph storms from a safer areas. I've suggested your old app to many friends specifically for the radars accuracy and storm tracking. Now, its late and I have no idea which one is bad or where to go.
The most accurate by far. Always receive an alert far in advance, and find that this station gets it right. No unhelpful drama, just reliable and accurate. The app is well worth having
