What is SW+ Alerts?
The sky darkens, light rain begins to fall as the wind picks up, and then a tornado siren starts it's familiar wail. Is this the real thing? Is the storm headed in your direction? Or is it in another part of your county posing no threat to you? You flip on the local news and your trusted meteorologist is going "wall-to-wall" - but talking about a storm in another part of the viewing area. Or perhaps you are out at the park, or enjoying a ballgame, and don't have access TV or radio. How will you know if you really SHOULD take cover? Enter SW+ Alerts, mobile weather alerting from Cirrus Weather Solutions, LLC.
SW+ Alerts is a unique, personalized service that puts the meteorologist in the palm of your hand by sending alerts to your smartphone or tablet whenever severe weather threatens your specific location. Combining storm-based ("polygon") warnings issued by the National Weather Service and a user's precise location, alerts are sent only if the user's registered location is directly threatened.
SW+ Alerts keeps you from becoming "siren-weary" and "overwarned" by only alerting you if you are in the path of the storm. If sirens or your NOAA Weather Radio sound the alarm, but you do NOT receive a StormWatch+ alert, you are NOT in the NWS-warned area.*
Though you should continue to pay close attention to a local weather source, the warning issued by the National Weather Service does not directly impact your location. This is what we call "peace of mind" and you can have it for about the cost of a meal at your favorite fast casual restaurant!
