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.

Not undated

This used to be a great app but as you can tell it has not been updated since 2014. Such a shame.

Notifications rarely work

Sorry but this was a reliable app years ago but now its very unreliable

Good but..

Nice interface, but sometimes alerts dont work. There was a tornado warning in my area and this app never knew anything about it

Melvin

CRAPP! Weather Bug beats this hands down. No support! Every day for a week it has said thunderstorms all day and night, so far not a drop of rain! This is giving the weather report for 23 miles away, not my address, and even then its incorrect! Often times when I put current location, it will give me the weather for another town in another state. I have no idea how they got such a good rating? Something is fishy here!

Garbage

Simply doesnt work. No other way to put it. I maxed the settings to give alerts for anywhere and made sure all notifications were on as advised in tutorial and instructions. Weather bug, weather channel, and NOAAs apps are sending me alerts all day long but yet this one is radio silent. Worst part of all... It costs me $3 to get an app that doesnt do the one sole and only thing it claims it will. Unreal.

This app could save your life

I am the emergency manager for a large healthcare system that spans multiple counties across northern Indiana. Aug 24 2016 we experienced a historic widespread tornadic event with 35 reported tornados. I have several severe weather notification apps. By far this app provided the earliest and most accurate warnings yesterday . Allows for multiple county tracking and provides audible ( alert specific sounds such as tornado siren or gurgling for flooding ) in addition to written warning. You can also view specific NWS issued warnings, and scan radar on a great map. Excellent, worth the investment.

Not with your money

This app does not allow you to select a county, so youre constantly flooded with useless information thats based on a radius.
