Get the latest breaking weather news, radar and more from the source you trust. Statesman Weather, brought to you by the Austin American-Statesman, is available for free on Android phones and tablets, iPhone and iPad.
The Austin American-Statesman brings you the most accurate local weather app, “Statesman Weather.” New in 2015, Austin's most powerful weather app includes the following:
-- Push alerts are FREE for more than 100 weather alert types -- including everything from flash floods and tornado warnings, to winter storm warnings, fog, fire, wind and tropical storm alert types. See a complete list inside the alert settings.
-- New map layers are now available to be added to the interactive radar including severe watch and warning layers, the cone of probability for tropical storms, storm reports and more. Tap the layers and settings buttons on radar to see a complete list.
-- Local forecasts: Select a location inside the Austin area to see a local forecast.
-- Place a location pin precisely where you want it for a specific address or any position on a map. When saving a location, just press and hold the pin and then drag it to the exact location you want.
-- A new location switcher in the app header allows you to quickly and easily cycle through all your saved locations and your current location.
-- Both tablet and handset apps now have identical features and similar designs to make the app more intuitive for power users that want to use The Statesman Weather App on multiple devices.
In addition to these new features, The Statesman Weather App still has these critical benefits:
-- The app is constantly updated with the latest area storm and forecast information
-- Live 2HD Radar zooms down to your neighborhood or zooms out to check radar anywhere in the country.
-- Statesman Weather App provides location-based storm alerts. While many other apps offer alerts based on your county, The Statesman Weather App supports a more precise type of alert issued for the most dangerous types of weather threats. More precision means you get alerts that matter to you, not false alarms.
The Statesman Weather App keeps you in touch with Statesman weather headlines using social media including Facebook, Twitter and interactive uploads of your photos and videos directly from your mobile device.
