HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The ABC13 Eyewitness Weather Team wants to make sure you stay safe in storm weather. Download the ABC13 Houston Weather app for your Apple or Android smart phone. (Search 'ABC13 Houston' in the app store or Google Play )
Now you can connect with the weather team seven days a week on your smart phone with the new app. Designed to keep you informed, hourly and video forecasts are just the beginning.
To customize the app, you just tap the menu to get started. Then you can add up to three locations, just type in a city name, select it and tap save. With each new location you add, you'll get voice alerts and push notifications for severe weather alerts in that area.
The app can even track weather alerts around you using your phone's GPS signal. Just go to settings and choose "follow me tracking".
Also in settings, tap "notifications" to scroll through and pick which severe weather alerts you'd like to receive.
The app will alert you with a voice alert when there's an active weather alert at one of your saved locations.
We've also included our interactive street-level Doppler radar so you can track the storms and share a snapshot of the radar with your friends.
In the app you can easily check the station's Twitter and Facebook pages and send your pictures directly to the ABC13 Weather Team.
Just tap "iWitness," press upload and you can send us pictures right from your camera roll or snap a new picture.
You can also watch live video of our newscasts when we're on the air through the app. Just make sure you set the notifications for locations you choose so that you only get the alerts you really want.
Take ABC13 with you!
