The Weather Authority App can track storms in your neighborhood by asking you to pinpoint your location on a map, so the app can send you customized alerts. Once your location is set, you’ll see a carousel with interactive radar, a daily forecast from our team of meteorologists, alerts, headlines, blog posts and videos from the CBS 6 Weather Authority.
The interactive map allows you to zoom in and out by pinching and panning, and add in layers such as radar/precipitation, satellite, temperature, storm tracks and lightning.
If you want to adjust the alerts you receive, just go to the settings and customize them for your location.
