Like most folks with children, the end of July signals an end to summer break, with August being a time to get your kid(s) school supplies, new clothes and maybe have one last hurrah on a family trip. But beyond this, how many of you have thought about and prepared for weather threats?
There are numerous methods for weather to threaten your family’s safety — lightning, strong wind, hail, heavy rain, heat, humidity, tornadoes, hurricanes and more. If only there was a way for parents to check for all these weather conditions and be alerted to these threats…wait, there is — the WeatherBug mobile app!
Our FREE mobile app puts the power of the world’s largest weather and lightning sensor network into the palm of your hand. WeatherBug is a fast, beautiful, easy-to-use app that uses our real-time, neighborhood-level weather and lightning data to help you Know Before™. You’ll get the most accurate current conditions, 10 day & hourly forecasts, and detailed conditions for your favorite locations so you can make the right decisions at the right times — like if your child needs to take a jacket (or not!).
With WeatherBug, you’ll receive exclusive Dangerous Thunderstorm Alerts (DTAs) — the fastest alerts to severe weather, period. DTAs give up to 50% more warning time than other apps so you can be prepared and keep your family safer. You’ll also get all National Weather Service watches and warnings.

You’ll also have access to Spark™ lightning alerts — no other weather app has this feature! Spark turns your smartphone and tablet into a personal lightning detector, giving you minute-by-minute, mile-by-mile lightning strike information. Find out when you need to bring your family indoors and when it’s safe for them to play outdoors.
