N.C. — Want to get weather alerts for your specific location when you are on the go? Want access to live video updates from the WRAL WeatherCenter while you are taking shelter?
Download the new premium WRAL Weather Radio App for iPhone and Android. The app alerts you to severe weather threats based on your current location. It also lets you add the addresses of your family and friends so you can know when severe weather is affecting those who matter most to you.
The app lets you customize the type of alerts you receive, and it gives you easy access to the WRAL WeatherCenter's tweets and blogposts. Animated radar is included to show you the latest path of severe weather.
The app, developed in partnership with Weather Decision Technologies (WDT), carries a one-time cost of $9.99.
More options for weather alerts
Subscribe to WRAL's WeatherCall service. Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel will call you if your specific address is in the path of a tornado or severe thunderstorm warning. WRAL WeatherCall uses your street address and the national weather service alerts to determine whether your home or business is inside a severe thunderstorm or tornado warning area. You can assign up to three phone numbers per address. The cost is just $8 a year.
If you don't want to pay for alerts based on specific street address, you can sign up for free county-level e-mail alerts from WRAL.com.
You also can check the Weather Alerts section of the free WRAL News and WRAL Weather apps for iPhone and Android. Visit our mobile downloads page for more information.
