Chief Meteorologist Glenn Burns and Severe Weather Team 2 have produced the most accurate local weather technology available, “The WSBTV Weather App.”
The 24/7 iPad App is constantly updated with the latest Atlanta area storm and forecast information. The free service includes Severe Weather Team 2’s 5-day Forecast with the “Weekend Always in View.”
Live Stormtracker 2HD Radar zooms down to your neighborhood or zooms out to check radar anywhere in the country.
Location based Storm Alerts will signal three tones to direct you to the latest severe weather warnings. Under Tornado Warnings, the App streams live coverage of Channel 2 Action News and Severe Weather Team 2 tracking storms and giving out minute-by-minute information on specific streets and neighborhoods threatened by the storm.

What's New in Version 2.7.8
What could have been
I wanted this app simply for the weather alerts for my area, however you have to buy $4.99 for blocks alerts. Please, The Weather Channel does that for free. You can get the basic alerts like thunderstorm warnings for free, but it appears everything else is extra. I wanted to support my local meteorologists, but not for a starting price of five bucks.
Can't add new locations
This app has worked great in the past but now I can't seem to add any new locations. When I click edit it only gives me the option to delete ones from my current list- no option to add a new one.
Forecasts have gotten terrible
As I write this they show 40% chance of rain every hour for the next 51 hours. They other 2 weather apps have between 0% and 60% for the hours in the same period. Yesterday the hourly temperature was off by 11 degrees. I know it's not easy to do but other apps seem to have an advantage on my old favorite.
