This morning, Jill Gilardi Fox 6 Meteorologist presented at the conference along with Jim Stefkovich of the National Weather Service. While both Jill and Jim covered different prospectives of predicting and planning for severe weather, they also discussed how interconnected the NWS and TV Media are and how they work together to disseminate information. There are so many ways now that people can get severe weather information. One of the fastest way to get information is through your mobile device.
Here are the several ways you can get severe weather information from Fox 6:
1. www.myfoxal.com/weather where your can sign up for weather email alerts and or text alerts.
2. WBRC Weather App - is free and provides all sorts of information about the weather including forecasts that are our own and not a computer model. Lightning alerts are available through the app. You can access our live stream which comes in handy when you loose your TV signal or the power goes out or you are not home and near a TV.
