Spark Lightning Alert
Anytime you are outdoors, weather matters --- and keeping safe from lightning, which can strike out of the blue sky, is paramount. Until now, there has been no systematic way to get information and alerts on lightning detected near where you are.
Spark, a unique and exclusive feature to WeatherBug, delivers lightning strike alerts based on your device's GPS location, your favorite locations you regularly monitor, or right on the spot where your family might be at that moment to help keep them safe.
Spark uses readings from the world’s largest and most advanced Total Lightning Network (ours), and will updated every 60 seconds or on demand. Whether the nearest lightning strike is where you are standing or across the world, Spark provides you with minute-by-minute and mile-by-mile lightning alerts, with recommendations for when to go indoors and seek shelter and when to stay tuned.
To check for lightning at a given spot where your loved ones might be that moment, simply zoom in on the radar map and press the exact location to get information on Spark lightning alerts and all other weather information.
Please tell your family and friends to get the WeatherBug mobile app, now with Spark, so they can Know Before™!
