At Stormtracker 19, we know you take your weather seriously. That's why WXOW is proud to announce an upgrade for our Stormtracker 19 Weather app. To get the new version, simply update your current Stormtracker 19 Weather app for iOS and Android phones and tablets. If you haven't downloaded our weather app yet, go to the Google Play store for Android phones and tablets or to Apple's app store on your iPhone or iPad.

Our new weather app includes lots of great new features to help you get the weather information you need, more quickly and easily than ever before.

  • Animated Radar is still front and center because we know that's really important to you. You can track storms to their current positions and see where those storms are headed. You can also choose to see watch and warning boxes on the map.
  • New with this version, you can choose to display lightning activity in the area.
  • On the daily forecast page, you can see a 10-day forecast.
  • We'll be sending important alerts and weather headlines to the app during major weather events. When an alert is issued for your area, you have the option of turning on audio alerts. A voice will tell you that severe weather is in your area and direct you to the information you need to know.

    Click on the links below to hear what the audio alerts sound like:

-Weather Alert Issued

-Severe Thunderstorm Warning

-Tornado Watch
 


  • You can also watch WXOW live from the live streaming page in the App. This means you can watch our live severe weather coverage on your phone or tablet… a real life saver when you can't get to your television.
  • School closings and delays are now easier to find in our weather app.
  • So is our Stormtracker 19 Weather video forecast, updated several times a day.
