Weather Alerts (All Services)

The Weather Alerts system requires you to have either an SMS-capable (text message) mobile phone number on file, or an active e-mail address, or both. This is a "confirmed opt-in" system. You must enter a code on this website that will be sent to the proper destination before the phone number or e-mail address will start receiving weather alerts. To unsubscribe from alerts, simply login to your account, navigate to the Weather Alerts control panel, and "Delete" any alerts listed. You may also stop alerts immediately by replying with the word "STOP" to any text message alert.

Mobile phone numbers and e-mail addresses are stored in a secured database. They will never be shared with anyone outside of weatherUSA, LLC without your written consent. We dislike spam greatly and strive to protect your contact information to the fullest extent possible.

Standard text message rates may apply from your mobile device service provider.
