WRAL.com has a new app that could be pretty useful for those times you're out on the playground or running around the neighborhood and a dark cloud looms.
With the WRAL Weather Alert app, Greg Fishel alerts you of every kind of weather you can imagine. You choose which ones you want.
It also has a "follow me" feature, so the app knows your location. You can get severe thunderstorm alerts at the swim meet or heat warnings at the soccer game!
It's super easy to use on iphone or android. Download it here.
