Weather Underground Takes Storm Tracking and Severe Weather Alerts to a New Level With Its Newest App ‘Storm’

SAN FRANCISCO, February 18, 2015 – Weather Underground releases Storm, a highly advanced app for weather enthusiasts and storm trackers alike.

Other weather apps on the market provide general severe weather and precipitation alerts, but Storm takes severe weather warnings to a new level by including not only the standard National Weather Service alerts, but also real-time lightning and precipitation alerts. With detailed storm tracks and predictive radar, this app allows users to see precisely where a storm is headed, which cities will be affected, and how much time residents will have to prepare. Through combining the highest resolution radar, forecasting technology and unparalleled levels of data, the Storm App was created.

“Weather Underground and Intellicast have a long history of providing highly specialized weather information. Recognizing the strengths of both companies, we decided to join forces to create the ultimate storm tracking app–with its beautiful design, sophisticated radar and superior forecasting, professionals and weather enthusiasts alike are armed with the highest level of severe weather analysis,” says Jim Menard, General Manager of Weather Underground.

Additional features include:

  • High-definition radar: toggle between animated past or future radar and near real-time single site sweeping radar
  • Storm tracking tools that include: direction, speed, populated cities affected and specifics on the severity of the storm
  • Full-screen interactive map displaying: animated surface and jetstream level winds, earthquakes, fronts, tropical data, severe weather alerts, and more
  • Customizable in-app alerts and push notifications for lightning, precipitation (within a 30-mile radius) and NWS alerts
  • Access to Weather Underground's network of over 100,000 personal weather stations
  • Universal (formatted for both iPhone and iPad)

The Storm App is available for free on App Store for iPhone and iPad.
