Welcome to WeatherCall® Mobile

WeatherCall Mobile
Welcome to WeatherCall Mobile, the only 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 Mobile is a web-based program designed to optimally perform on iPhone and Android "smart phones."
                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 50 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.
 
Keep the app 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 and/or via an SMS text or email with specific information, including a map of the warning area.

SUBSCRIPTION COSTS:

    WeatherCall Mobile: $9.95 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.
Tornado warning map
The WeatherCall Mobile subscriber will receive a pre-recorded phone message and/or an SMS text within seconds of this TORNADO WARNING issued by NWS and an "All Clear" message when it is no longer in effect.
    WeatherCall Mobile Lightning: Real-time lightning strike monitoring: $9.95 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 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 "All Clear" is delivered indicating that it appears safe to resume activities.

Important Tips:
  • The application must be running in your browser window for it to be proactively monitoring you.
  • If you turn the application OFF during fair weather, WeatherCall Mobile will send an SMS text when your phone's last reported location falls within approximately 30 miles of an NWS-issued warning REMINDING you that dangerous weather may be developing nearby. Please turn your WeatherCall Mobile application back on and keep it visible in your browser window, so you can receive a warning if necessary.
  • The incoming phone number with a WeatherCall notification is 1-866-479-9906. Please save this number and name it WeatherCall so it will display on your caller ID as WJXT WeatherCall.
