New and Improved WGEM StormTrak Weather App - Download yours today!

The WGEM StormTrak Weather Team is proud to announce the next-generation WGEM StormTrak weather app. 

To get the new version, simply update your current WGEM StormTrak weather app for iOS or Android phones and tablets. If you haven't downloaded our weather app yet, go to the Google Play store for Android phones and tablets or to Apple's app store on your iPhone or iPad.

Our new weather app includes lots of great new features to help you get the weather information you need quicker and easier than ever before.
  • Animated Radar is still front and center because we know that's really important to you. You can track storms to their current positions and use “Futurecast” to show where those storms are headed. You can also choose to see watch and warning boxes on the map.
  • New with this version, you can choose to display lightning activity in the Tri-State area.
  • On the daily forecast page, you can choose how many days you would like to display.
  • We'll be sending important alerts and weather headlines to the app during major weather events. When an alert is issued for your area, you have the option of turning on audio alerts. A voice will tell you that severe weather is in your area and direct you to the information you need to know.
  • The new Share Button lets you share a page to Text or email.
  • Starting soon, you'll be able to watch WGEM live from the live streaming page in the App. This means you can watch our live severe weather coverage on your phone or tablet… a real life saver when you can't get to your television.
  • School closings and delays are now easier to find in our weather app.
  • So is our StormTrak weather team forecast video, updated daily.
  • You'll also find our video forecast and important news headlines.

  • Vertical and horizontal map display with looping
  • NOWrad, the gold standard for radar in the weather industry
