    There are several things that make the FOX23 Severe Weather App unique from other apps. 

    • More than 120 different weather alerts are possible, that is more than most apps
    • Warning alerts are received based on the polygons issued by the National Weather Service rather than for an entire county

    If you are looking to set up a custom location in the app, there are several ways to do this. You can either type in a zip code or drop a pin. Check out the FOX23 Severe Weather Team's how to on setting up custom locations.

    It is important to note that if you turn your phone on "Do Not Disturb" during the night, you will not get alerts! It is recommended that if severe weather is expected overnight, leave "Do Not Disturb" turned OFF and leave push alerts for the most critical types of weather on.

    Downloading the FOX23 Weather App can help keep you informed both at home and on the go. You can also follow our team of meteorologists as they track any storms moving through.
