Tracking the storm ,

Great Job

This is the best local weather app in Jacksonville. The interactive radar allows me to track down to my street address. I love the live streaming feature. The 7-day with the hour by hour break out is impressive. The Action News First Alert weather team provides Coverage You Can Count On!

Awesome, Great Graphics!

THE weather app to have, even if you don't live in the Jacksonville area. The data is up to date, easy to read and the share feature is excellent. Highly recommend this app for any weather condition - rain or shine!

Love it!

I love this app! Since downloading it, I have deleted the weather channel app which was a bunch of bull and inaccurate most of the time. I like the simplicity of this one, the google earth background and its overall appearance. I also think "mike" is the best weatherman on air!!! Keep up the good work!
