With the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season quickly approaching, there are many different things about severe weather monitoring compared to last year that could impact how important information is received. Having a hurricane tracking app can ensure you stay safe and informed.

While many weather apps provide general storm alerts, most are not strictly geared toward providing hurricane-specific information. Many iOS users found themselves a bit lost after Apple shut down the popular weather app Dark Sky on January 1.

Here are some of the best hurricane trackers you can download on iOS and Android to stay up to date on weather alerts, storm forecasts, and more this hurricane season.

2023 Hurricane Season Forecast: The 2023 hurricane season begins June 1. Here are the latest forecasts and how to prepare:

My hurricane tracker

My Hurricane Tracker is a simple app that provides comprehensive tools for tracking hurricanes, tornadoes, tropical storms, and weather warnings. The simple interface makes the application easy and does not overwhelm users with too much information.

When you open the app, you’ll be asked to give it access to your location and send push notifications — both of which are used to provide push alerts of relevant warnings to users from the National Weather Service.

The interactive tracking maps use the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s forecast map and satellite images where available, as well as a five-day forecast.

Free features

Perhaps the most convenient part of the app is the fact that all its features are available to users completely free. There’s a small, non-intrusive banner at the bottom of the app, but it remains clutter-free.

Emergency by the American Red Cross

The Emergency App from American Red Cross is a great “set it and forget it” app that will provide you with highly customizable alerts, invaluable information on how to prepare for the worst disasters, and even provide you with a planner that can help you create an emergency plan Emergency Plan and Custom Toolkit.

Unlike the other two apps, the Emergency app is best used to complement other weather apps. It offers maps of upcoming storms and shelter locations, but you won’t use the app to find out if you need to grab your umbrella on your way to work.

Once you’ve finished the app’s quick setup process, scroll down to ‘Live Location’ under ‘Locations’ and enable Live Monitoring. If you haven’t done so already, it will ask you to give the app access to your phone’s location. Click on your location and then the bell icon to look at all the alerts you can customize, including high alerts, hurricanes, tropical cyclones, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, high winds, and more.

Advanced options will allow you to customize it further. For example, clicking “Hurricane” will allow you to change how you want alerts for tornado warnings or watches delivered to you. You can also set it to bypass Do Not Disturb.

The application is completely free and does not contain ads.

the climate

Clime, formerly known as NOAA Radar Pro, is a feature-rich weather app that’s worth the price of admission if you’re a weather enthusiast looking to get the most out of the app. Admittedly, if you’re looking for a free app, this won’t be the one for you.

Where Clime shines is powerful hurricanes, rainfall, storms, wildfires and lightning. Once you navigate to the app, you will be asked to customize the alerts you want to receive and you will be asked to share your location.

From there, you’ll be dropped directly onto the radar map based on your location. Tapping different locations on the map will bring up advanced weather forecasts, including a precipitation forecast that will tell you when the rain is expected to start and estimate how much rain the area may receive.

Returning to the radar, you can switch between different maps, similar to Google Maps, to change your view from the radar to the forecast for precipitation, temperature, and snow depth (you never know with Florida). Best of all is the app’s ability to let you stack these overlays on your tornado tracker to provide an inordinate amount of information about impending storms.
