Welcome to WeatherCall Mobile – the mobile weather app that continuously monitors your smart phone’s location, notifying you if you’re near dangerous weather.
The original WeatherCall personal severe weather warning notification system, trusted by hundreds of thousands, is now available in a MOBILE version. WeatherCall Mobile is a web-based program designed to optimally perform on iPhone and Android “smart phones”.
Using the same technology as the original WeatherCall system, WeatherCall Mobile monitors the self-reported location of an iPhone or Android smart phone and delivers a warning call and/or SMS text if the phone is within 1 mile or less of a National Weather Service (NWS) warning area. If the user turns the application during an extended period of pleasant weather, the WeatherCall system will send a “reminder SMS” the next time the National Weather Service issues a warning for within a 30 mile region of the phone’s last reported location. In addition to NWS warnings, optional lightning notification is available on WeatherCall Mobile if the smart phone’s location is within 6 miles or less of lightning strikes.
within a mile of a warning area, or if lightning strikes within 6 miles of you, your phone will notify you with either a phone call
from Dan Skoff, and/or via an SMS text or email with specific information, including a map of the warning area. An “All Clear” message is delivered when the danger is no longer in effect.
WeatherCall Mobile: $11.95 per year
Activate the application on a smart phone’s web browser and the current location is reported once every minute to the WeatherCall system. When a phone comes within 1 mile or less of a NWS storm-based warning a warning call and/or SMS text will be made to the phone. The full text of the warning can be accessed, and the specific warning area can be viewed on a Google map.
WeatherCall Mobile Lightning: Real-time lightning strike monitoring: $11.95 per year
When a smart phone reports its current location, a “protective zone” is created and monitored. Any lightning strike detected by the US Precision Lightning Network http://www.uspln.com/ within this zone will activate a lightning notification phone call and/or SMS Text message, with a recommendation to temporarily suspend activities. Either 15 or 30 minutes (user definable) after the LAST lightning strike within the protection zone occurs, another phone message and/or SMS text is delivered indicating that it appears safe to resume activities.
Mobile Lightning has detected a cloud-to-ground strike within 6 miles
