WJXT is pleased to bring state-of-the art, personal
storm warning services to the Jacksonville area.

    Recent improvements in how the National Weather Service defines warning areas have resulted in significantly higher accuracy and smaller warned areas, compared to the decades-old county-wide warning method.

    The WeatherCall® system continuously monitors the National Weather Service’s NOAA weatherwire. Using computerized mapping (GIS) the system compares a subscriber's specific location to the location of the warning area. When a severe weather warning includes your location, you will receive a phone call from chief meteorologist John Gaughan 24 hours a day. You can also receive the warning by email with a detailed map of the threat or by SMS text messaging.

    Example:

If a tornado warning is issued for both Duval and St. Johns counties, that covers
a combined 1,210 square miles, while the actual warning area is only 254 square miles.
Only WeatherCall subscribers inside the red box would receive the warning call.
