INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s an easy and free way to keep you and your family safe this severe weather season.
Features on the WISH-TV weather app range from alerts based on locations to an interactive radar.
A helpful feature is setting up your location to get warnings, watches and advisories for where you live.
Head to the bar at the top of the app and click on the three bars. There you’ll see the option “locations”.
Click on locations and select a location closet to home and press done.
Once you set the location you’ll be able to get national weather service alerts within the parameters.
You can setup notifications for lightning strikes five to six miles away from your home location. Station alerts, like blog updates are also sent to your phone as well..
The app provides an interactive radar option with precipitation depiction, from rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain. You’ll be able to see current radar and have a FutureCast option at the tip of your fingers by pushing the “play” button at the bottom of your radar.
If you happen to miss a newscast and need the extended forecast you’ll have the option to read the extended forecast on the weather blog as well as watch the video update by our staff of meteorologists.
Another great feature is sharing photos with the Storm Track 8 team using the Report It! feature. Just snap a picture, upload it through the storm track 8 app, and don’t forget your name and town! The picture goes straight to our weather computers, so it’s easy to share on the air with the rest of central Indiana!
