Does your weather app answer this one question: Am I in immediate danger from this National Weather Service severe weather warning? If not, give WeathAware a try!

WeathAware wants to be the first app you think of when severe weather threatens. There is no other app like WeathAware. WeathAware can display the National Weather Service severe weather warnings that are affecting you AND your chosen contacts as soon as they are issued. When every second counts, you need to know if the storms could be affecting you so that you can act if you need to.

WeathAware Lite can monitor severe weather warnings for 1 address from your contacts and WeathAware Plus can monitor severe weather warnings for 10 addresses from your contacts in addition to the location of the device.

What’s New

Version 1.4.2

Fixed an issue with the Demo Mode where the map resizes during a position update after zooming. Also fixed the message that would let you know when the data wasn't available from the provider and the Friend multiple address selection spinner. The compass is on all the time now. Also some minor bug fixes.

New to Texas

I just experience my first tornado warning but it was for my daughter and family listed as a friend in my app. I was able to find out right away if they were okay and in a safe place but I couldn’t figure out what all the things displayed on my screen! What are the green circles that were going over her house??? What were the dark blue areas?? More explanation would be helpful.

Thank you for the feedback! You know when that friend asks why you didn’t respond to the email/ text they sent but you are certain you did? Well, I really meant to put that into words somewhere. Basically the moving green circle on the map is an estimate of the location of the cell given the initial position, speed, and direction. The blue areas are the estimated path and uncertainty cone around the estimated path. Also while I’m on the subject, the compass has numbers and colors in the upper left (time)and upper right (distance) related to the “darker” blue path mentioned above. Time and distance are to the estimated point at which the cell would be closest to you. The colors behind the numbers on the compass page red/yellow/green and generally mean bad/caution/good. I really need to do a video and describe the meaning behind everything. The color coding of the compass numbers was my wife’s idea. 😊

I guess to sum it up, I’d told all my friends here in Alabama so many times during the development that it slipped my mind. Sorry about that and it is now on my radar screen, no pun intended. 😄

Thanks again!

Faster Than Local WX Coverage

The app’s purpose is to keep you safe in dangerous weather conditions, like the South has been experiencing a lot recently.

I got a tornado warning from this app two minutes sooner than I did from our major Atlanta weather team (WSB-TV). TWO minutes could mean the difference between life and death in a severe weather situation.

The app is straight forward and effective. Check it out; it could save your life.

Great app!

Living on the west coast of Florida, we are always having squall lines blow ashore. I like to know if a big cell is headed my way, but they can sneak up on you...sunny on one side of the house, black on the other. This app gives warnings, projected storm paths with CPAs and tells me the exact info I'm interested in. Perfect!

Developer Response ,

Just realizing I could reply. Thank you! The newest versions, Lite 1.4.0 and Plus 1.4.0, are out and hopefully more useful. I think closest point of approach (CPA you referenced) is one of the unique aspects of WeathAware that most people don't realize exists in WeathAware's Compass view. Maybe I should accentuate that?
