About this app

The WJBF Vipir 6 app is a daily weather resource for your smart phone, providing forecasts and current conditions like radar, satellite imagery, temperature and surface winds on a fast and fluid map. An easy-to-use slider lets you scan through the next 24 hours of forecasted conditions, so you can see what the weather will be like at times and locations important to you.

- Current and forecast conditions based on city, zip code or your current location.
- Nationwide radar, VIS/IR satellite imagery, temperature and more
- Interactive weather map with pan and zoom
- 7-day forecasts
- National Weather Service county and storm-based warnings on map
- Integrated weather alerts with Baron Tornado Index (BTI) rankings

Built-in Weather Alerts:
WJBF Viper 6 provides fully automated weather alerts right on your phone, simple to use and more specific than weather sirens, with a lead time of up to 15 minutes before the storm hits. You can set up for four places to be monitored for severe weather, including your smart phone's current location, so you always know what's coming.

Choose to receive any or all of these alert types:
- Special WJBF Vipir 6 alerts:
• Storms Entering Your Area
• Dangerous Storm Approaching
• Twisting Storm Approaching
- National Weather Service storm-based Warming:
• Tornadoes
• Severe Thunderstorms
• Flash Floods

Featuring the Baron Tornado Index:
The Baron-exclusive alerts are accompanied by a simple 1-to-10 ranking on the likelihood of a tornado with the approaching storm cell. Called the Baron Tornado Index (BTI), this ranking is more local and accurate than regional alerts.

I love the app but as of right now it keeps crashing when I switch different map views. I need this to work because Ian is at our backdoor and I like keeping up with storms like I'm a meteorologist lol....I've downloaded the weather channel but I don't like theirs as much

As of 7/20/22 the UI update has honestly been a hideous choice. It's a trainwreck for anyone with light sensitivity issues and is genuinely hard to navigate and parse information from at a glance.

Liked the original version a lot better. Updated version needs to be updated again.
