The Big County covers a thousand square miles. Dangerous storms are often less than 200 square miles. In the past, severe weather warnings were issued for entire counties creating uncertainty as to exactly where the threat really is. The National Weather Service now uses a new and much more precise method to define a warning area called STORM-BASED WARNINGS that reduces the size of a warning area by an average of 75%.
WeatherCall combines this new method to determine a warning area with robust emergency telephone notification. Using computerized mapping, WeatherCall matches the danger area defined by the National Weather Service with your exact street address. If your address is within the danger area of the weather warning, KTAB Chief Meteorologist Sam Nichols will deliver the warning message to the phone numbers you register, and also send you an email if you provide one. (Below is an example.)

When you register, your home or business will be assigned a latitude/longitude value which is stored in the WeatherCall computers, along with your telephone numbers and email addresses (if you have them).
