WxNotify is a free service that sends notifications for weather, law enforcement, and governmental alerts.
Subscribers create alerts based on 1) what they want to be alerted for, 2) the locations where
subscribers want to be notified for, 3) when they want to be alerted, and finally, 4) how they
want to be alerted. (email, SMS, etc.)
WxNotify then takes care of figuring out which subscribers should be notified when a matching NWS product is issued.
WxNotify is built using a 100% open-source technology stack upon cloud-based servers, which are monitored 24x7x365 for electricity, water, and network issues. The WxNotify website is fully-responsive, which looks and functions similarly on any device; whether it be a desktop, smartphone, or tablet.
WxNotify is designed to provide near 100% uptime✝ to ensure that you will always
be notified for severe weather any time alerts are issued for your area. It obtains its weather data directly from governmental agencies,
such as the National Weather Service,
Storm Prediction Center, and the
National Hurricane Center.
Specifically, WxNotify uses the NOAA Weather Wire Service (NWWS) and the Emergency Managers Weather Information Network (EMWIN) to download a constant stream of weather data that is used for alerting its subscribers.
