NOAA Weather Alerts App Details

A simple yet powerful app that combines science with simplicity so you can be notified of real-time severe weather warnings that affect your locations. NOAA Weather Alerts has been updated for iOS 10 and beyond. With this major update comes a sleek new design, new alerts, and new weather radar. NOAA Weather Alerts sends you storm-based (or polygon) alerts via push notification so you can be notified of real-time severe weather warnings that affect your locations. Storm-based (or polygon) alerts help reduce false alarms from county-based alerts by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. Why is that important? Because county-based alerts warn you even if your location in the county is not within the threatened area, effectively giving you a false alarm. Receive storm-based push notifications for 45 different types that focus on the most Severe Weather Warnings. View alerts on the weather map to see severe weather warning boxes where dangerous weather is happening. Tap the alert to view its info. • Tornadoes and Thunderstorm watches and warnings • Flood watches and warnings • Hurricane and Tropical Storm forecast tracks • Hurricane and Tropical Storm watches and warnings • Storm Tracks with detailed storm information (requires Future Weather in-app subscription) • Winter storm watches and warnings • Marine and coastal alerts New Layers on the weather map let you see recent weather activity from the last 6 to 12 hours. • Radar • Clouds • Clouds & Radar together • Wind Speed • Snow Cover • Temperatures • Water Temperatures • Road Weather • Earthquakes • Future Weather (in-app purchase subscription required) • Lightning Alerts and notifications (in-app purchase subscription required) Enhance your app with a Future Weather auto-renewing subscription for purchase within the app for $0.99/month.

  • Basically Over It...

    By WontShutUp
    ...and really I only have this map for one reason... future radar. BUT IT DOES NOT KNOW WHERE I LIVE! I got a friend’s house close to me to show up kind of accurately, I go by that but it’s still the wrong city. I had gotten spoiled by the weather app I had prior to this one and the developers must have let it go. It literally sent notifications when the rain was within an certain amount of time of reaching you... and keeping you updated. It showed thunder strikes too. You could see the future radar, the forecast was actually the most accurate and it had, like all of my other radar apps, the search and save contacts option that showed up as any icon you could choose to put on your map... it was awesome! I would’ve easily paid a couple bucks a month for it. I keep this one because it has the cleanest map and “future radar.” But it has no idea where locations are when I look them up. Although it did accurately pinpoint the garage sale I was just at... but I can’t seem to accurately look up a City or Zip code. This one wants an extra buck a month for lighting strikes... that’s free on my local news map. Again, I only have this map for one reason... future radar. AND IT DOES NOT KNOW WHERE I LIVE!
  • Not reliable, no alerts anymore

    This app cannot be trusted. I have reset it a million times and never get alerts anymore. Worst weather alert app ever never never works
  • The older version was a lot better

    By Kasen.
    The older version had better annoying sounds to wake me up and now I sleep through the alerts
  • It’s junk.

    By Hot_Shot_@_Most_Things
    His used to be a good app with accurate weather alerts, and now it simply doesn’t work. It’s worthless.

    Don’t waste your money on this app! You used to be able to customize your alerts and set multiple locations! Now all you get is a stupid radar!
  • DO NOT BUY!!!

    By Quake5
    I bought this because I knew we were going to have severe weather today. It does absolutely nothing!! It showed me a map of the US. That’s it! It didn’t even show me the rain or severe weather right over me, let alone the tornado watch we were in. I’m so disappointed and I want my money back!! I had it all of 12 hrs and it never did anything. I’m so mad!!
  • Doesn't send updates

    By Video iffy
    I used to depend on this app. Especially during the spring. It still has very good info but since the update it now longer sends notifications. Very disappointing
  • Bad Update

    By SJ123tx2013
    Hate the update. You used to be able to choose alert distance and which severe weather you got alerted for. Now it’s just a poor run of the mill weather app.
  • Utterly useless

    By Bigmo1988888
    Not reliable. Just experienced a tornado warning at my locale. App showed no alerts. 20 minutes later I swiped down and 2 alerts appeared! Aghghhhh..... I’m dead!
  • Don’t like the change

    By HIM_Darling
    Bring back the customizable alerts.
