Welcome toABC 33/40 WeatherCall ToGo– the mobile weather app that monitors YOU for possible dangerous weather, not the other way around.
The original WeatherCall personal severe weather warning notification system, trusted by hundreds of thousands, is now available in a MOBILE version. WeatherCall ToGois a web-based program designed to optimally perform on iPhone and Android smartphones.
Using the same technology as the original WeatherCall system, WeatherCall ToGo 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 ToGo if the smart phone's location is within 6 miles or less of lightning strikes.
Keep ABC 33/40 WeatherCall ToGo open in the phone's web browser allowing it to continually report its location, and forget about it. If you come 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 Chief Meteorologist James Spann, and/or via an SMS text or email with specific information, including a map of the warning area and an "all clear" when the threat is no longer in effect.
