Free Weather Alerts by Text Message and E-mail

Aware by weatherUSA® is a real-time weather alert service that sends out weather warnings, watches, tropical alerts, and other advisories as soon as they are issued by federal agencies including the National Weather Service. Alerts are sent to subscribers in the warned areas to a mobile device via text messages (SMS) or by e-mail. Premium users can also receive alerts via voice (phone) call.

You can select warnings to receive based on county or state for local weather warnings; national advisories such as tropical storm and hurricane advisories are also available. For text messaging, you can even select a "quiet time" when you do not want to receive notifications. At the moment, our service provides alerts for any location in the United States.

We also offer support for pagers and paging devices, technical products for meteorologists and weather enthusiasts including Mesoscale Discussions and Public Weather Outlooks, and short-links in text messages that allow smartphones to view the full text and maps of an alert. Looking for a replacement for Weather Underground Text Alerts or ProAlert? Try our free service, and then upgrade to Premium for full features or let us know if you have any questions.

Do not rely solely on this system for the protection of life or property! Some alerts may be delayed or missed because of issues on mobile networks or e-mail systems. A weather radio or local news affiliates should also be monitored for weather warnings.

Please read our Privacy Policy for more information on how your information (cell phone number, e-mail address) is used and protected.
